Fry Trap

There are fewer dead flies in the After Life box than expected. So where did they go?

For two months in summer 2011, a glass box containing a typical kitchen and garden was left to rot. In this resulting documentary, presenter Dr George McGavin and his team use time-lapse cameras and specialist photography to capture the extraordinary way in which moulds, microbes and insects are able to break down our everyday things and allow new life to emerge from old.
