For those who didn't see it the first time around....it's a good watch. A good snapshot of Seventies Britain and it's attitudes and the people affected by the Rippers crimes.
The testimony of the son of Wilma McCann...his first victim...was particularly moving if I remember.

Wasn’t one of the bodies found by les battersby on coronation street?

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Me and a mate were informally interviewed by detectives on the Ripper case.

We were innocent.

Thanks for the heads up Thrash. Looking forward to the next 2 episodes now.

Disgraceful how dismissive the cops were back then to victims that did not fit their profiling,

and prostitutes in general.

It was amazing, wasn't it?

You might have thought Gene Hunt and his crew in 'Life on Mars' was a gross exaggeration, but this programme shows it was a pretty accurate portrayal.

My brother was in leeds uni at the time, and after the ripper was caught there was a dark joke doing the rounds.

"peter Sutcliffe has escaped from Broadmoor and is believed on his way to Bradford. West Yorkshire police have warned the public to beware of a man with a Geordie accent"

Just as an aside, I haven't seen so many 70's classic cars for some time. Maxi etc FFS. Wonder if in 40 years time people will be sniggering at Ford Focuses, Vauxhall Insignias, Nissan Qashqais etc?

Guess most will be electric or hydrogen driven by then.

I was at Leeds University 1977 to 1980, and lived in Chapeltown and Harehills. This is still painful to watch.

Another extraordinary episode tonight, and the ineptitude of the senior police officers was painful to watch.
Even when Thatcher intervened and sent in Home Secretary William Whitelaw, he had the brilliant idea of changing the police at the top, and then just switched around the two senior officers who had so signally failed, and who were both wedded to the Wearside Jack theory. FFS! Utter incompetence all the way up.

Women died due to the sheer inability of the West Yorks Cops to look outside the box. That Oldfield character especially was amazingly obtuse.
