very well done documentary
4 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this is an extremely interesting documentary on jack the ripper and who he really was.the difference is this documentary also has a panel of experts who weigh in on the subject,and give their opinions of who the killer was.when this documentary was made over 20 tears ago,there were were a only a handful of suspects.since that time,there may have been more information and other/more suspects.or the identity of the ripper may have been definitively proved. i don't necessarily think the show was successful in unmasking the killer,but it certainly could have been one of the suspects which they focused on.nonetheless,it is highly informative and entertaining,and well researched.Peter Ustinov as host was a good choice.i enjoyed his dry wit and dark sense of humour.for me,The Secret Identity of Jack the Ripper is a 10/10
