It’s 1975. In Leeds, the Millgarth Incident Room is the epicentre of the biggest manhunt in British police history.
Follow Sergeant Megan Winterburn as she joins hundreds of officers working around the clock to find the man known as the Yorkshire Ripper.

Following New Diorama Theatre’s award-winning productions of Secret Life of Humans and Down & Out in Paris and London, they go behind the scenes and investigate the case that broke the British police force.
