The foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone. The ankle bone’s connected to what you’ve eaten, where you’ve been and who did you wrong. The secrets of our lives are written in our bones – if you have the skill and experience to unlock them.

One person who has that experience in spades is world renowned forensic anthropologist Professor Dame Sue Black. She will lead us on a remarkable journey to piece together the evidence in the bones, some of it hidden for years or even centuries, unlocking grave crimes and the downright bizarre.

Now shake dem skeleton bones and watch as Professor Black reveals how each part of us has a tale to tell. Chaired by Gavin Francis.
