Two new BBC series have useful websites with content which colleagues may well find helpful..

The Truth about Crime is filmed in Oxford.

The website includes an OXFORD-located GIS style activity which can be seen below.


Some useful animations on how crime can be explored are included. Thanks to Paul Cornish for the tipoff via SLN
Check out the full SITE.

Another useful area could be to explore the claim that Oxford was chosen for the series because:

it is as close as we could find to a typical British city. In terms of demographics, and particularly in terms of levels and types of crimes, it is typical of the national picture.

Think about how you could investigate this claim, and produce a brief response....

Another programme that has restarted with a new series is COAST.
This explores coasts outside of the UK, such as the Normandy coastline of France.
