Yorkshire Ripper Files: A Very British Crime Story- Winner's Acceptance Speech, Specialist Factual, Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards in 2020

31 July 2020

Winner's acceptance speech by Yorkshire Ripper Files: A Very British Crime Story production team in the Specialist Factual category 

PRODUCTION TEAM: Wow thank you so much BAFTA we really weren’t expecting this. I’d like to thank the team at the BBC, Cassie and Tom, Abi and Jack and my amazing Executive Producers Leanne Klein and Nancy B.


The Yorkshire Ripper case has had lots of programmes made about it but we wanted to ask a different question: How did the attitude to women in the 1970s derail the investigation?


It’s a story that’s still really relevant today and it was a privilege to be able to tell it.


Special thanks go to all the families and victims who spoke to us.
