Helen MacDonald - After Burke and Hare - Procuring Corpses to Dissect in Scotland

Speaker: Dr Helen MacDonald (University of Melbourne)

Grave-robbing and the Burke and Hare murders have become anatomy’s enduring reference points, but during the nineteenth century most bodies were stealthily acquired by medical schools through other means.

After the 1832 Anatomy Act a distinctive pattern of corpse procurement was creatively forged in Scotland, through alliances between the country’s anatomists, anatomy inspectors, local law makers, and the men who were in charge of hospitals, poor houses and lunatic asylums. This system was one that the English schools could only envy.

Serial Killer Saturday - Burke & Hare

William Burke & William Hare (Requested by Miss Tudor Rose)
Were serial killers who had an obvious motive. You’ll have to watch to find out, but it’s no mystery. It wouldn’t take a deep psychoanalysis to figure why they did what they did.
Or would it? Why would one person do what these guys did, and not another? Everyone makes choices, so why do some choose the obvious wrong thing?
