TV crimes

I'm a real sucker for crime investigative programmes. When I was living in the US, I spent many a night with my eyes glued to the endless stream of crime and forensic 'documentaries' being televised on 'Court TV'. It's no surprising, then, that I find the NZ programme, Sensing Murder, highly compelling. Take an unsolved murder. Bring in a couple of psychics. Play some eerie music while the psychics pin point the crime scene and talk to the dead. I'm hooked. My only question is this...If the evidence seems so compelling on TV, why haven't the police managed to solve the murder after the show? There seems to be a lot of 'leads' being passed onto police but, as far as I'm aware, nothing concrete has come of it.
