Some crimes have become sensational news stories and their memories are now part of our popular culture. From Jack the Ripper to Roswell and Lady Di, each episode revisits a page of our shared history.
Sensational news stories of violent crimes, accidents and suicides act as intermittent reminders of how minor or major transgressions can wreck our lives. Each episode in this series revisits a fascinating page of our shared history, meticulously decoding and deconstructing a sensational news item that was unjustly disdained by historians and generally left to the sensationalist press.
