Hi Robert,
Did a search at the Brighton university, with my wife , and eldest daughter , about six years ago, looking at every Radio Times publication, from 1971-75..to no avail,
But that was because we were looking at articles at the front of each magazine up to the listings of programmes, not at the rear I never considered was relevant, but on deep reflection shortly after we returned home, it dawned on me that the rear pages had articles also, and this I remembered was featured there..
Instead of trudging back again to that hot reference Library, I shelved the idea..need motivating again.
Regards Richard.

Richard I have phoned the Radio Times and they were very helpful, sending me a scan of an article about the forthcoming series. Unfortunately the article only mentions JTR in passing, being devoted to the Harriet Staunton case.

I'm wondering if it was a regional program.
There are some FAQs that touch on the subject that are worth reading.

Searching for Reg/Reginald Hutchinson, Topping Hutchinson and even George Hutchinson doesn't bring up anything useful. But then, the series called Jack the Ripper, with Barlow and Watt, is missing from the results for "Jack the Ripper"!

Default 1988

One of the programs mentioned is on youtube its a 1988 one with a very young Mr Fido and it is quite informative. It was called Jack the Ripper Timewatch documentary 1988..
One thing he mentioned was that Mary Kelly was found work in service by convent in Dorset street but she left? Never heard this before....
It was interesting!
Pat........

Hi This was in the casebook book reviews regarding Reginald Hutchinson statement.......

In the book The Ripper And The Royals, Melvyn Fairclough interviews a man named Reginald Hutchinson, who claims his father, George William Topping Hutchinson, was the man who knew Mary Kelly. He claims that his father was born on the 1 October 1866 (which would have made him 22 at the time of the murders) and described him as an honest and hard working plumber, who rarely, if ever, went without work. He said his dad took careful note of details and could remember things accurately. His father mentioned to him several times that he knew one of the women, and was interviewed at the time by the police. When asked by his son who he thought Jack the Ripper was, his father replied, 'It was more to do with the royal family than ordinary people', and believed the Ripper was someone like Lord Randolph Churchill.

Hi Paddy.
Indeed very aware of that reference in 'The Ripper and the Royals'.
My knowledge of 'exactly' that. was heard some 18-20 years prior to that books publication.
That is what the radio broadcast reported..
Regards Richard.

Churchill isn't as far fetched as some may think after all he did die of syphlis and he would certainly fit into a non local person visiting the area to commit the crimes.

Hi.
All the witness Hutchinson[ Topping] said , was ''He looked someone up the social ladder, and resembled Lord Randolph.''
Not he was..mind you was not Lord Randolph interviewed by the police,? or is that hearsay, or via the minds of sensation mongers,
Regards Richard.
