Vic Reeves Investigates: Jack the Ripper (2007)
Sky1 commissioned a one-hour documentary featuring comedian Vic Reeves looking into the mystery of Jack the Ripper. Reeves will study historical documents, look for undiscovered evidence and see if modern day police methods can shed new light on the crimes. The show will also see Reeves "line-up" the five main suspects, drawing his own conclusion on who the murderer was. Produced by Ruggie Media, producers of Living shows 'Jade's PA' and 'Extreme Makeover' the programme will also see Reeves meeting with historians, forensic experts, criminal psychologists and even a psychic detective to discover the Ripper's identity. Ronnie Newman graded this programme in Nitris, also removing unwanted items from the set and adding graphics. Along with the Director, he also created a look for the reconstruction footage and did some work with the stills to give them a more dynamic feel. Executive Producer Paul Flexton says, "I was very pleased to have undertaken the post production of 'Vic Reeves Investigates Jack the Ripper' at blue. Everyone involved in the project was very professional and made sure that we delivered to Sky an exceptional programme”. Audio was completed by blue’s Kevin Boyle whilst Monika Bienkowska created the title sequence.
