    The Things We Forgot to Remember



    Jack the Ripper

    Michael Portillo presents a series revisiting the great moments of history to discover that they often conceal other events of equal but forgotten importance.

    Londoners were certainly afraid in the late 1880s, but not, as we might expect, of a top-hat wearing, knife-wielding psychopath. Michael travels from the East to the West End of the city to reveal that the fear that stalked those streets was not down to one man, but to the catastrophic collapse of a whole way of life.

          The programme concentrates on the political and social problems in the 1880's more than the murders themselves. Contributors include amongst others Paul Begg and Don Rumbelow.

          Worth a listen.
