The programme also features numerous dramatic reconstructions that were filmed at the London Dungeon's Jack the Ripper Exhibition and at the truly creepy House of Detention in Clerkenwell.
These provide the viewer with vivid portrayals of the East End of London in 1888, and really do help build up a picture of how the Jack the Ripper scare impacted on the lives of the people who lived in the area, whilst lending the production an authentically sinister air. It's almost like being transported back in time to that long ago autumn of gaslight and terror.
In addition to the stunning dramatic reconstructions, the film also features interviews with some of the top names in the field of Ripperology.
These include Paul Begg, author of the books Jack the Ripper:- The Facts, Jack the Ripper:-The Definitive History and co-author of what has been termed "the Bible of Ripperology" The Jack the Ripper A - Z.
Other interviewees include Lindsay Siviter, one of the leading Jack the Ripper researchers, and East End historian and tour guide Jenny Phillips.
Their analysis and observations about the various aspects of the case really do provide a chilling insight into why these crimes shocked society and made Jack the Ripper the most famous serial killer of all time.
