Excellent news, Jeff. I wish you the best of luck with this project. It sounds very promising judging by the people you already have involved.

On the other hand, of course, 'cats' could just be a typo.

We must not forget the cats meat man either.

Just source material no modern theories.

Yes I still have the Diddles problem to resolve. As you know Tara (my Cat) is difficult on camera, well difficult generally.

Yes we have a distribution company talking in the USA this weekend.

It should play in America.

We have been asked to include American Ripperologist and we are interested in talking to any American experts in the UK over the next few months.

Robert Mcoughlin would be my star catch!

I know Jeff has spent many years struggling on this, I myself was aware from the 2007 conf. Now the contracts have been agreed with the various tv companies involved, work has really only just begun.

I have seen a sampler DVD, with John Bennetts voice over. Even in its base form I enjoyed it, though Johns scouse/brummie accent he gave me was waaaaaay out.

As said, the works begun. We have various people working on it, assembled by Jeff, Paul and John, who all have a passion for the subject and the facts.

Nothing to push, no theory, just the events has they happend.

As said, loads of hard work yet to come. I look forward to it.

Monty
Yes thats about it. But dont forget Jakes fantastic graphics. For the first time you guys are going to see what actually happened.

Your going to have to trust me on this, and it will be a little controversial.

Luckily i have an Ace team to advise
