The Whitechapel Murders: Into the Streets of Victorian London
Today, the East End of London is a thriving centre of commerce. In the 19th century however, it was a maze of dark alleys, gas lit courts and foggy wharfs. It was a particularly dangerous place for women, a number of whom were murdered at the hands of Jack the Ripper. Dr Julia Laite takes Dan Snow around the East End to tell the story of the Whitechapel Murders.
