DCS David Baker headed up the investigation into the brutal murders of two Leicestershire schoolgirls between 1983 and 1987. Only a few miles away, Dr Alec Jeffreys, was a scientist at Leicester University who, on 10 September 1984, invented a remarkable technique to read each individual's unique DNA fingerprint. When a local teenager admitted to one of the murders but not the other, Baker asked Jeffreys to analyze the DNA evidence left at the crime scenes. Both men were shocked to discover that the teenager was innocent, his confession false. DCS Baker then took the extraordinarily brave step to launch the world's first ever DNA manhunt, testing over five thousand local men to track down the killer.Written by
An excellent mini-series based on the true story of the events surrounding the murders of 15 year olds Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth in a small village outside Leicester, UK. The acting is beautifully metered and subtle and the depiction of life in England in the 1980's is extremely well done. Congratulations to all involved in this series and deepest appreciation to Sir Alec Jeffreys and team and the police force involved for their blood sweat and tears in these tragic cases as well as deepest heartfelt sympathy condolences to Lynda's and Dawn's loved ones.
