DISCOVER THE REAL STORY BEHIND THE CRIMES OF
SERIAL KILLERS BURKE AND HARE
AND WHY THEIR LEGACY LIVES ON


The conspiracy of obtaining bodies for profit still exists

It's still happening...

And no-one is doing anything about it



We have all heard the well known tale of the unsuspecting tourist who wakes up in a hotel bathtub full of ice, horrified to find that his kidney has been clandestinely removed during the night.

Well, that was a myth.

But, as outlandish as it may sound, not all such stories are works of fiction. A grim, black market trade in body parts is certainly in operation...and as demand exceeds supply, it's costing unsuspecting victims the ultimate price - their lives.



"The Body Merchants" investigates terrifying claims that murder is fuelling the illegal trade in bodies for profit and exposes disturbing true accounts which reveal the blood curdling reality that the type of crimes infamously perpetrated by Burke and Hare are not confined to history.

Hear how...

A Columbian man, left for dead among freshly killed cadavers, narrowly escaped
with his life from a university medical school in a corpse-selling case which
scandalized South America.
Political prisoners are being mercilessly persecuted and massacred in order to
ensure that supply of human organs meets demand.

A Vice President of the European Parliament discovered that Chinese citizens are being
secretly killed in military hospitals so that their body parts can be obtained by
government officials.

Investigators from the United Nations determined that organ transplant surgeries
have risen massively in the last decade in countries where there could not possibly be
that many voluntary donors available.




From the dawn of human dissection medical men have
secretly sanctioned murder for medicine


In 1828 their complicity in this atrocity was uncovered, scandalizing the establishment and shocking a nation.

Burke and Hare's anatomy murders repulsed 19th century Scotland, which relished public executions, and spawned a macabre fascination with them that has continued for nearly two centuries.

"The Body Merchants: The Shocking Truth about Anatomy Murder" is a factual and honest portrayal of what really happened; meticulously researched and shot on location on the streets of Edinburgh's Old Town, the stomping ground of the two murderers, bringing to life the deprivation and abject poverty of an era which became a breeding ground for murder.

Follow in the footsteps of Burke and Hare...see their murderous haunts in old Edinburgh...and uncover the reality about Scotland's most prolific serial killers...




Edinburgh 1828...


Terror runs through the dark, cobbled wynds and alleyways in Edinburgh’s Old Town.

The death toll is high from disease, malnourishment and poverty on the rat infested, rubbish-strewn streets, rife with crime, deprivation, drunkenness and prostitution.

Edinburgh is at the forefront of anatomical study in Britain. The city’s medical schools require a constant supply of fresh bodies to increase their knowledge of human anatomy and to be able to teach the growing numbers of medical students.

But the law allows only the bodies of executed criminals to be used for dissection and the public have an abhorrence to the bodies of their loved ones being cut to pieces on the surgeons’ slabs.

The anatomists desperately need more bodies. And desperate times call for desperate measures.



It’s the height of the resurrection period and the ‘sack-em-up’ men are secretly snatching bodies from out of their graves under cover of darkness to sell for the anatomists' dissecting tables.

The furious public are up in arms, rioting in the streets, but the authorities are turning a blind eye and the legal profession refuses to address the problem as it spirals out of control.

It’s a city torn into two halves. The terrified citizens living in the medieval streets of the Old Town are entrenched in poverty and squalor, unable to protect their dead. Nearby, in the Georgian grandeur of the New Town, the wealthy clients of the surgeons have become dependent on the resurrectionists for the supply of teeth from the dead. And the surgeons need to practice on the bodies prior to performing operations on their well-heeled patients.

The citizens of Edinburgh take to guarding the graves of their newly-deceased loved ones until putrefaction sets in, in order to try to thwart the body snatchers. But the stench of death and the fear of capture does not deter them as the lure of easy money makes the resurrection men cunning and ever bolder, for the doctors require still-more fresh bodies for their dissecting tables – and they pay extremely well.


It’s a time of fear, distrust and deceit.



But events are about to take a far more sinister turn...
