This made-for-TV mystery was originally telecast over BBC1 on April 23, 1998 as an extra-length episode of the long-running British crime series Silent Witness. Amanda Burton heads the cast as forensic pathologist Dr. Sam Ryan, who in anticipation of all of America's "CSI-ers" is able to track down murderers and other such reprobates by using the "silent" testimony of deceased "witnesses." In this instance, Dr. Sam is called upon the scene when the blades of a harvesting machine are blocked up by a dead body. The police are at first willing to write off the tragedy as an accident, but our heroine is quick to see that the corpse bears a wound that was administered long before it was deposited in the field. The ensuing investigation takes Sam all the way to Northern Ireland, where she digs up secrets that many people would prefer remain buried. The fourth episode of Silent Witness' third season, Silent Witness: Brothers in Arms made its America bow via cable's A&E network on December 12, 2000.
