Part of the documentary series examining unexplained phenomena and mysterious events in history. This volume looks at the horrific crimes of the Whitechapel killer known as Jack the Ripper, the murderer who plunged Victorian London into a panic and who was never caught for the brutal slayings of at least five East London prostitutes. With footage of the locations where he committed his crimes, and genuine photographs of the murder scenes, this documentary uses interviews with Ripper experts to examine the various theories about who was responsible, and tries to explain why he was never caught.
