[00:09.67]Protecting the innocent
[00:13.22]Pansy wanted to write an article on detectives for the school newspaper.
[00:21.39]To get information,she interviewed Detective Ken.
[00:28.06]This is part of the interview.
[00:32.50]PANSY:You say that you like working as a detective.Why?
[00:39.34]KEN:Let me tell you about a recent case that I dealt with Pansy.
[00:46.21]Mr Li is a very rich man who lives alone and enjoys collecting things.
[00:56.16]He purchased a vase for two million yuan.
[01:03.24]He showed it to only two people-his friends Jill and Jenny.
[01:12.20]Then he locked it in the safe at his house.
[01:17.95]That night,someone stole it.
[01:22.42]Li reported the theft,and I went to his house to look for clues.
[01:30.07]PANSY:Did you find any?
[01:33.54]KEN:Yes,a black pearl earring near the open safe and,
[01:42.09]outside the open window of the room,
[01:47.05]I saw a lot of mud on the wet ground.
[01:53.21]Inside the room,thecarpet was spotlessly clean.
[02:00.27]KEN:I interviewed Jill and Jenny.
[02:05.13]They both denied stealing the vase.
[02:10.19]But I noticed that Jill was wearing a black pearl necklace--but no earrings.
[02:20.96]PANSY So Jill was the thief?
[02:24.80]KEN I didn't know. I needed proof.
[02:30.07]A good detective never jumps to conclusions.
[02:35.82]I showed Jill the earring,and she admitted it was hers.
[02:43.58]She said someone had stolen it from her house a month before.
[02:51.52]I checked her story.It was true.
[02:56.56]PANSY:So Jill was no longer a suspect.
[03:02.13]But what about your other clue--the mud outside and the spotless carpet inside
[03:11.19]KEN:That told me that probably no thief broke into Li's house.
[03:18.95]So I questioned Li and,in the end,he admitted stealing his own vase.
[03:28.98]He had bought insurance for it.
[03:33.66]The insurance company would pay him two million yuan if the vase was stolen.
[03:43.22]PANSY:And who stole Jill's earring?
[03:47.76]KEN:Li did that as well.
[03:51.63]He tried to make sure that Jill would go to jail instead of him.
[03:59.57]PANSY:So now Li is behind bars.
[04:05.13]KEN:Yes, and Jill is free.
[04:09.99]My job is to protect the innocent as well as find the guilty.
[04:17.65]That's why I like working as a detective.

[11:13.93]An extract from 'The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes'
[11:21.30]The death of Ronald Adair in the spring of 1894
[11:28.95]was one of the most interesting cases I ever worked on.
[11:35.61]I thought about it quite a lot,but could find no possible explanation.
[11:44.47].Adair was the son of a famous general who was abroad at the time.
[11:52.93]The young man's friends were from good families,and he seemed to have no enemies
[12:03.28]On the day of his death he had played a game of cards
[12:10.36]at the Bagatelle Club with some friends.
[12:16.52]On the evening of 30th March,
[12:21.38]Adair returned from the Bagetelle at exactly ten o'clock.
[12:28.93]His mother was out,visiting relatives.
[12:34.26]The servant said Adair went upstairs to his room,where she had lit a fire.
[12:43.82]She had opened the window because some smoke from the fire had blown into the room.
[12:53.49]Just before midnight,
[12:56.96]Adair's mother returned and went to say goodnight to her son.
[13:04.82]The door was locked and there was no answer,so it was forced open.
[13:13.97]Adair was found lying near the table.
[13:19.53]A bullet from a small gun had entered his head,but the police could find no weapon.
[13:29.80]Some coins were on the table,and a note with names of friends at the Bagatelle.
[13:39.96]This appeared to be a list of all the money he had lost and won playing cards.
[13:50.43]There were no marks on the outside wall.
[13:56.00]Since it was impossible to aim a small gun from a distance,
[14:03.26]the murderer must have been in the room.
[14:08.82]Nobody had heard any noise.
[14:13.86]In addition to all this,nothing had been stolen from the room.
