Default Arthur Munby Documentary

Patricia Cornwell devoted three pages in her book to a long anonymous letter to the Times in October 1888 in which the writer describes how he was accosted by a gang of young men who believed him to be Jack the Ripper. The letter is signed AN ELDERLY GENTLEMAN and Cornwell speculates that it was written by Sickert as a joke. Actually it was a real incident and the writer was the barrister Arthur Munby and this fact had been known for 30 years as it appeared in the book 'Munby, Man of Two Worlds' which I read in the early 1970s. Anyway, why I'm here is to say that Channel 4 TV in the UK aired a truly excellent documentary a couple of days ago about Munby's EXTREMELY STRANGE SEX LIFE (that woke you up didn't it? ) and the whole thing can be watched, at least for 3 days, here:

Cheers Chris

Thanks for that.

If anyone wants to read the full text of the letter and owns the Cornwell book, it's in Chapter 22, Barren Fields and Slag-Heaps.
