Exhibit A: Secrets of Forensic Science (1997-2002)

This acclaimed series is a compelling, innovative true crime series focused on the role of forensic science in solving some of the most perplexing crimes of our time.

Exhibit A was a groundbreaking concept when it premiered on Discovery Channel (Canada) and TLC (US) in the late 1990s - it blended police accounts and forensic science with potent dramatic reenactments. In subsequent years, its 65 episodes were broadcast worldwide and its popular approach was imitated by many true crime productions.

Finn Nielsen has appeared in the following episodes:

S01E04 - Splinter of Guilt
Two men are shot and killed in a botched robbery at a local community centre after catching two thieves in the act. The murders occur in the boiler room. One of the bullets has pierced a drum of purple air conditioning fluid and so the floor is a wet, sticky mess of blood and purple fluid. In a flash of forensic intuition, firearms specialist Finn Nielsen picks a sliver of wood off the floor of the murder scene. Back at the Centre of Forensic Sciences, he identifies the sliver as a broken piece from the butt end of .300 caliber savage rifle. Police investigate recent robberies and find out that three guns have been stolen in the previous week only blocks from the community centre. The rifle was then sold to another man whom the police arrest. But they now must find out which of the two thieves actually pulled the trigger. To add to the confusion, each of the two suspects tells a contradictory tale of what happened. A forensic biologist analyzes the blood on the clothing of the two suspects' clothing to determine who will pay the price for this tragic crime.
