Behind the Scenes

How do you portray an event that occurred over 150 years ago, in a location that no longer exists?

Murder at Harvard's producers chose to recreate John Webster's chemistry laboratory, where Simon Schama imagines George Parkman's murder to have occurred. A crew built the detailed set in a Newton, Massachusetts, warehouse, basing it on a surviving floor plan from the original trial transcripts.

Explore the set with this 360-degree QuickTime VR panorama. Select hotspots to access behind-the-scenes images and comments from the cast and crew.
