Synopsis:
Jack the Ripper murdered and horribly mutilated at least five helpless prostitutes in the East End of London in 1888. Never caught, never certainly identified, over a century of theories and speculation has obscured the story of what really happened. This 90 minute documentary, written by and featuring many of the world's leading authorities, tells the of Jack the Ripper from the first murder to examination of the men policemen at the time thought was the killer. Amazingly detailed and closely researched graphics show you what the streets in the East End were really like in 1888, what the witnesses actually saw and why the gas-lit warren of passage and alleys made Jack impossible to catch.
Using the actual statements of witnesses, the evidence presented in the coroner's court, and official police documents, this video reconstructs the horrific events in astonishingly accurate detail. Forget what you've seen before, this is the definitive story. Narrated by Paul Begg, co-author of the 'Jack the Ripper A to Z', and author of 'Jack the Ripper: The Facts' and 'Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History'. Contributing experts: Robert Anderson, Bill Beadle, Neil Bell, John Bennett, Lars Davidsson, Richard Jones, Donald Rumbelow, Neal Shelden, Lindsay Sivitar, Nevill Swanson, and Gareth Williams.
