    Secrets of the Dead [#1401H] Ben Franklin's Bones In November 1997, when the skeletal remains of at least 10 bodies were unearthed in the basement of an elegant townhouse, police feared it was the work of a serial killer. But when research indicated the bones actually dated to the mid-1700s, the implications became even more dramatic. This was no ordinary house: 36 Craven Street was the former residence of Benjamin Franklin.
    This program reveals some questionable practices in medicine. In the 18th century, private anatomy schools were set up across London to give medical students the opportunity to learn anatomy by dissecting human cadavers. But supply lagged behind demand. Anatomists needed many more bodies than the ones of hanged murderers, which were the only bodies legally available at that time for their study. This created a business for body snatchers, also known as "resurrectionists," who exhumed corpses from graves to sell to the anatomists.

Decades later, each person reunites with relatives in North Korea, conveying beyond words the meaning of family loss.
