I just caught the last 20 minutes of this special on PBS, and it was amazing. If you are in a time zone west of Indiana, you need to watch it. It aired at 8 pm Eastern time, so some of you should be able to still catch it, right? I've been trying to find videos or more info, but I can't find anything very in-depth.

Basically, the special is about the many ways that nature can give forensic scientist clues to solve murders. The special focuses on the life cycles of insects colonizing the body, the tendency of birds to collect hair from bodies to build their nests, aging a body based on the plants growing up through the bones, and more.

I found a couple preview videos on YouTube. If anyone finds better, please post them:
