Public Autopsy

Robert speaks with Oliver Wright, a reporter with The Times of London, about the scene at the public autopsy that took place in an art gallery in East London. More than 300 people showed up to see Professor Gunther von Hagens cut apart the body of a 72-year-old man. This was the first public autopsy performed in Britain in more than 170 years. The practice is illegal.
