PSIP Description: 
A look London's police force sheds light on what it takes to become a modern-day Sherlock Holmes.
Long Description: 
From Dickens to Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie to James Bond -- no police institution in the world has caught the public imagination in the same way as Scotland Yard. The name has become synonymous with London's police force, but actually comes from the location of the original police headquarters building. Its officers and "Bobbies" are often seen in the news as protectors of the Royal Family and other British officials, but Scotland Yard is most often associated with police detectives. By meeting with some contemporary sleuths we'll reveal the secrets of what it takes to become a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, and we'll uncover some grim and grisly details of detectives who have gone before.
