Amber Marks presents BBC Radio 4 show 'Sniffing out Danger'

19 June 2012

Amber Marks, Lecturer in Criminal Law and Evidence at Queen Mary, presents a BBC Radio 4 documentary today exploring the growth of ‘olfactory surveillance’ – the monitoring of personal odour. While dogs are often used to sniff out threats, scientists are also training bees, mice and electronic noses to find threats by odour alone.
