PREVIEW: In The Footsteps Of Killers, Channel 4

In this three-part true crime series, Emilia Fox and Professor David Wilson, Britain's leading criminologist, investigate famous unsolved murder cases.



Together they use the latest forensic science and criminological research to shed new light on these troubling crimes and look for new leads that the original investigations may have missed.


Thirteen-year-old David Spencer and eleven-year-old Patrick Warren went missing in Birmingham on Boxing Day in 1996.
