5. Picking up the Pieces

Skull by Hannah Gibbs square.jpg

Stumbling across a dead body is the stuff of nightmares. For Mo Oliver, it’s all in a days work.

That’s because Mo identifies human remains for a living. It’s a job that’s taken him to some very dark places; from mass graves in Bosnia to Sri Lankan beaches clogged with the bodies of the Boxing Day Tsunami. We talk about the challenges of his work and how it feels to reunite the lost with the living.
