Documents

Many of the documents uploaded in the blogs were also loaded onto the wiki. We haven’t linked them all here, but you can recognise most of them from the filename prefix: STMB for Rabia’s “Split the Moon” blog, VLL2 from Susan’s “The View From LL2” blog, and EVPB from Colin’s “Evidence Prof Blog“. The trial transcripts were mostly provided by Rabia and they have different file prefixes of T1 and T2. To avoid pointless duplication if a file was also shared on the Undisclosed website, we just used that version (prefix = UD followed by the episode or addendum number). Some of the blog docs do not make much sense without the surrounding text so they were not loaded on the wiki, including the individual tower cell phone maps and the clay burial position models from Susan’s blog.
