Peter Sutcliffe, The Yorkshire Ripper, is one of the most notorious British serial killers of all time. He murdered 13 women and attempted to kill at least 8 more during a 5-year reign of terror. In this compelling documentary, we tell his shocking story through the ones that got away – the brave survivors who he attacked but who lived to tell the tale. Along the way, we interweave Sutcliffe’s murderous rise and fall and show how detectives’ failure to listen to the survivors contributed to their botched investigation.
