When the Dogs Don’t Bark

Professor Angela Gallop

Friday 11th October 13:40 - 14:40 | Northwood House

By merging true crime with memoir, Professor Angela Gallop, one of the world’s most eminent forensic scientists, provides a gripping account of some of the thousands of cases she and her colleagues helped to solve, including the killings of Stephen Lawrence, Damilola Taylor, Rachel Nickell and the Italian banker Roberto Calvi.

In her book, When Dogs the Don’t Bark, Gallop addresses some of the misconceptions about what forensic scientists really do; describes how technologies such as DNA profiling and digital forensics have transformed the practice of forensic science; and discusses her concerns about the impact of continuing budget cuts, both on the provision of forensic science services and on the criminal justice system as a whole.

As well as helping to bring dangerous criminals to justice, Gallop has also been involved in correcting serious miscarriages of justice and exonerating innocent people – such as the Cardiff Three – who have been wrongly accused and convicted of crimes they didn’t commit.
