48 Hours on ID
48 HOURS ON ID investigates shocking crimes and compelling real-life dramas with journalistic integrity and cutting-edge style that defines the weekly cinema verité style that is the standard for many television newsmagazines today. Viewers become part of the investigation - from the psychological profiling to exploring new scientific methods that are part of today's forensic toolbox. Bite marks, blood velocity, reading DNA on a victim's clothes after 20 years - all of it is part of the drive to help solve these cases. This in-depth approach has earned 48 HOURS numerous awards including three Peabody Awards, 17 Emmys and four RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Awards.
