Presented by Richard Jones and featuring Paul Begg, Jenny Philips, Zena Shine (a descendant of Aaron Kosminski) and Lindsay Siviter.

Presented by the popular comedian and featuring Paul Johnson, Richard Jones, Elaine Quigley, Judith Rowbotham and Glen Wilson ... oh, and a supposed psychic-medium called Kieth Charles is pointlessly included. Not the most serious investigation, but an entertaining one.
