A construction crew, renovating a building in London in the 1990s, uncovered human bones in the basement of the structure where Benjamin Franklin once lived. They surely opened "a can of worms" as the investigation turned into a study of grave robbers who stole dead bodies for research, of William Hewson, a surgeon and friend of Franklin's and of Ben himself. This enticing PBS series reveals the findings and results of this ghoulish event. 2014/color/60 min/TV-14/widescreen.
