Default JTR (the first serial killer) on 5 (UK) now

Just started on C5 (UK).

I have a feeling I've seen this before, so it might be a repeat.

EDIT: Yep, it's the one where they use all teh modern profiling to find where he likely lived and develope "THE FACE OF THE RIPPER"... OOOOWWWHHHHHHHWHHWHhhh <spooky sound>

I've seen it before as well but I have to say it is one of the better JTR programmes and worthy of a repeat. The programme takes a sober and non- sensationalist look at the cases and comes to some logical and interesting conclusions. It also manages to avoid the commom mistake of so many books and documentaries on JTR and focuses on the evidence and crimes themselves rather than begin with a list of suspects and try to pin one to the crimes.

Yeah, and with a highly photogenic chick as 'profiler'.

I didn't bother to watch it tonight, as I thought first time around was enough.

I only saw the last quarter of an hour,but evidently I can call it up and watch it on my computer....
I watched Cheryl Baker instead.
I did get what looks like a good book out of the library this afternoon.
"The Grim Almanac of Jack the Ripper's London 1870-1900" by Neil .R.Storey.
Anyone read it,by any chance??

How can Jack the Ripper's London be from 1870 to 1900 when the dear chap operated only in 1888? Who is Neil R Storey? Who for that matter is Cheryl Baker?

Drinking the Fizzy stuff!
Ahem....yes,let's get serious...
Right Graham,
Only got it a couple of hours ago,but it's quite an interesting read.It sort of goes on a daily basis covering the years mentioned,like in a diary,and gives you things that happened on that day...
It features Jack quite heavily,with a touch of London mixed in for good measure.
Got lots of good and interesting info,and nice pictures maps and drawings.Pubished in 2004,has photo's in it with Stuarts name below them.

Ah yes. I believe such musical (so-called) rhythm singers tend to go under the generic name of The Beetles, unless I much mistake. A sort of syncopated darkie-type stuff, yes? They play banjos and beat drums, I believe. And wail in a language known to neither man nor beast.

I'm sure it was intended to help sales, but the idea is that it covers the poor and criminals in London throughout a time period adjacent to the Ripper. It's certainly a good book for getting the feel of the time and place in short little clips of writing.

And I'm obligated to point out that we certainly don't know that Jack only operated in 1888.

The folks that made this C5 programme are the same ones I did the programme for earlier this year that should be shown before the year is out.

Neil Storey is a friend of both SPE and myself. He's a very nice chap, highly knowledgeable on many different crimes and mysteries. He also has a personal Black Museum not quite as good as Stewart's but better than mine!

I understand the book does contain some errors - but which doesn't? - but it's a really nice piece and one I'd certainly recommend. Lots of lovely photos in it too.
