    Actually Al I was just reading through this thread and it wasn’t until I noted the post by Bob Hinton that I realised that it was from 10 years ago. So you can see why I’m Herlock Sholmes and not Sherlock Holmes

    10 years on and still no update on the mystery programme? What a cliffhanger!

    After a certain age, I think we should all stop relying on our memories. We nearly always get it wrong.

    Memory's a funny thing. I seem to remember once turning on the TV and seeing a man press down on the latch of a dilapidated door and walk into a house. Even as I saw it I thought '29 Hanbury St.' And it was! It may have been Farson - I'm not sure. I know it wasn't Mason because I've seen his clip.

    The thing is, I'm not sure my memory isn't playing tricks on me, so I'm not going to ransack the universe. Good luck with this anyway, Richard.

    JACK THE RIPPER
    Exceptionally scarce pamphlet, originally broadcast on BBC Radio Four on 1 June 1972. ...

    Is this the same broadcast to which you refer

    I found this for Richard ages ago, even managed to source a copy but there is nothing in it about George Hutchinson.

    Know the feeling. I distinctly remember a TV program where a now elderly Jack the Ripper is working in a theater, I believe here in the States. My surmise was that it was either a Mike Hammer or a Meet McGraw but I can find no promising titles or descriptions connected to those shows. It would have been around 1955-65. Maybe it was on the DuMont Network which has lost a lot of its records from what I hear.

    I have searched some copies of the Radio Times at the British Newspaper Library in Colindale, but the only entry I found was 25 May 1972 edition relating to the already identified and discounted Radio 4 broadcast.

    Can you remember anything about the article, eg where it was in the magazine, were there any photos etc?

    Thanks
    David

    Hi Brenda,
    Thanks for the encouragement, the ninety minute slot was obviously down to University rules for visitors, i believe originally they offered us 30min/ one hour/ or 90 min, we obviously chose the latter, trying to get access to those Radio Times was extremely red tape, forms galore.
    But I feel obliged to trace that edition, even if no oral tape appears to exist, simply because the title'The man that saw Jack', I hope will add some value to my age long ramblings on Reg being on radio, as part of that broadcast.
    Regards Richard.

    I searched [ we searched] every magazine from april 71-july 75, but as explained we only had a 90 min slot in a very busy university liberary.
    The only way to find this broadcast is to search once again , but the rear pages[ front searched], and if that fails the radio programmes [ tuesday is in my mind] i can assure anyone who visits Brighton University, after pre booking, that the programme is 100 per-cent there somewhere, as every single Radio times is there for the relevant period.
    But one needs time , and extreme patience, and much cooler conditions, to be successful.
    Regards Richard.
    You can do it! More than anything, I hope you find that advertisement.
    Why is there a 90 minute limit on viewing the material?

    Ah but.........

    That Richard old chap is what research is. Weeks, sometimes months ploughing through acres of records in the hope of finding something.

    When my first book came out I was interviewed on Radio Wales and I was asked about research, the interviewer likened it to doing a jigsaw.

    I replied 'Not quite. When you do a jigsaw you know what the finished picture looks like and you know all the pieces are in the box somewhere. Research is having a great big box of pieces, all of them white and you're not even sure all the pieces are present'
