No police institution in the world has caught the public imagination in the same way as Scotland Yard.

From Dickens to Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie to James Bond, Scotland Yard is synonymous with London’s police force, but actually comes from the location of the original police headquarters building.

Some contemporary sleuths reveal the secrets of what it takes to become a modern-day Sherlock Holmes and the program uncovers some grim and grisly details of detectives who have gone before.
