3/9/12: The World of Sherlock Holmes

Salt Lake City, Utah – The iconic detective Sherlock Holmes has been portrayed on radio, television, comic books, board and video games and of course the silver screen. The scholar Leslie Klinger says that Holmes has been popular ever since Arthur Conan Doyle first introduced him in 1887. Friday, Klinger joins us to explain why Sherlock Holmes still works as a character. It's because he's the person we all want to be - smart, in complete command of the situation and always doing the right thing. (Rebroadcast)
