    Frontline [#3010H] The Real CSI From the courtroom to the living room (thanks to the hit television series CSI), forensic science is king.

But how reliable is the science behind forensics? A Frontline investigation finds serious flaws in some of the best-known tools of forensic science and wide inconsistencies in how forensic evidence is presented in the courtroom. From the sensational murder trial of Casey Anthony and the FBI's botched investigation of the Madrid terrorist bombing to capital cases in rural Mississippi, Frontline documents how a field with few uniform standards and unproven science can undermine the search for justice. As part of the investigative series Post Mortem, Correspondent Lowell Bergman reports in a joint investigation with ProPublica and the Investigative Reporting Program at UCBerkeley. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Assassination: Idaho's Trial of the Century This program combines re-enactments, stills, expert commentary and archival footage to piece together one of the most famous criminal trials in US history. In the summer of 1907, the long-simmering tensions between trade unionists and capitalists finally played out in an Idaho courtroom when "Big Bill" Haywood, the secretary-treasurer of the Western Federation of Miners, stood charged with orchestrating the murder of former governor Frank Steunenberg. The 3-month trial thrust Idaho into the national spotlight, as two of the West's sharpest legal minds, criminal lawyer James Hawley and newly elected United States Senator William Borah, clashed with legendary defense attorney Clarence Darrow in a "struggle for the soul of America." duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Frontline [#3115] A Death In St. Augustine On the night she broke up with her boyfriend, a Florida deputy sheriff, Michelle O'Connell was found dead from a gunshot in the mouth. Next to her was her boyfriend's semi-automatic service pistol. The sheriff's office called it suicide, but was it?
    Frontline and The New York Times investigate this death of a young, single mother, and what can go wrong when the police are faced with domestic violence allegations within their own ranks.
