The Ripper Speaks
Between 1975 and 1980, one man brought widespread fear to the people of the North of England. His attacks were sadistic and violent, and led to the largest manhunt the police have ever faced. The man behind the crimes became known as The Yorkshire Ripper.
Police eventually put an end to the Yorkshire Rippers reign of terror when he was arrested in 1981 and finally identified as Peter Sutcliffe, a married lorry driver from West Yorkshire.
This film provides a view of Sutcliffe not as the mythical ‘Ripper’ who terrorised the country, but as he really was – a lonely, isolated coward.
