Thanks very much for this link. I watched Part One and about half of Part Two on my laptop last night before I got too tired. Will finish today. If one could remember everything that was brought up in this documentary, one would have a pretty fair background on JTR. It bears watching several times for that reason. I am enjoying this.

I enjoyed it very much, too. We saw the last third or so it recently on television, and my companion (a Ripper hobbyist who is not on Casebook) was impressed by it. It is excellent for placing the various victims and witnesses in context and helping to visualize the dry written accounts.

Hi all, was there supposedly an extended version of this documentary? Or did everyone see the 90-minute version only? This wiki page says the complete film was two and a half hours long. I recently bought the high-definition streaming version from Vudu for only 3 US dollar. It is the History Channel version for American TV with an American narrator. But it also runs 90 minutes only. I would like to see the long version with more of those CGI recreations. For those not impressed with the CGI, note that this film was made 5 years ago, which is quite a long time in computer technology.
