Default In search of something good to watch

Does anyone have an opinion as to what are the best 60-90 minute Ripper documentaries available? Does anyone have a favorite?

A fairly standard and entertaining documentary is Jack the Ripper: Phantom of Death. Despite the somewhat idiotic title, it features Martin Fido, Melvin Harris, Donald Rumbelow, Stewart Evans, etc. which makes it rather interesting to watch. Several copies of rather poor quality can be found on youtube; this one is not too bad, and is split up into four parts, each about 12 or 15 minutes in length. Have fun with it.

"Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History" is an excellent 90 minute documentary about the case.

It is particularly interesting due to the CGI mock ups of the streets and crime scenes of Whitechapel.

Enjoy!

Barlow and Watt: Jack the Ripper is a part-fictionalised, part-historical serial from the early 1970s, but has some excellent performances and good attention to period detail. A lot of the contemporary characters' words come from newspaper/inquest reports etc. Well worth watching.

That's fairly poor quality, but at least it's in colour. Here's a slightly better rendition in black and white:

Thank you all! I have some watching to do.

Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History, I wonder if that is a visual interpretation of the Paul Begg work of the same name?

Jack the Ripper: Phantom of Death does sound silly (that usually happens when a producer and not the director/writer gets to name the project,) but that is an impressive list of interviewees.
