I have been very fortunate to have been invited to lecture and to give audio visual talks around the world, not only on the topic of Jack the Ripper but other equally interesting crime-related topics such as “Serial Killers”, “Modern Day Forensics” Crime Prevention”, Along with talks relating to myths and mysteries from around the world that have fascinated and captivated the imagination of the public at large for many years.
Recent additions to my lecture program feature a four-part series of lectures titled “The Dance Crazes of the 1920`s-1970`s” and the newest the “Magic of Motown” charting the history of this legendary music label and the artists who gave so much pleasure in the 1960s
The details of all my highly interesting and informative talks are set out below and can be tailor made to last between 60 minutes and 2 hours.
“Jack the Ripper- “The Real Truth”
In this presentation, I reveal the results of my lengthy cold case re-investigation into this murder mystery, which has fascinated people worldwide for 130 years. The results of which now dispel and shatter the myth that surrounded Jack the Ripper and The Whitechapel Murders.
The Magic of Motown
This is a 60-minute audiovisual presentation charting the history of this iconic record company that changed the face of music in the 1960s and features many song clips of hits from the many groups and artists whose songs are timeless.
Throughout the Sixties, Tamla Motown produced a catalogue of artistes such as “The Four Tops” “The Supremes” “Stevie Wonder” “Martha and the Vandellas” whose hit records cannot be rivalled such as “You’ve Really Got a Hold On Me,” “Heat Wave,” “Dancing in the Street,” “Tracks of My Tears,” “Where Did Our Love Go,” “My Guy,” “My Girl,” “Baby Love,” “Reach Out, I’ll Be There,” “I Can’t Help Myself,” “Get Ready,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” and many more.
Many of the hit records were simple love songs that told simple stories, often in joyously happy or heartbreakingly sad ways, with Tamla Motown becoming know as the pride of Detroit, and the pride of black America.

Playing upon the public’s interest in the unusual and bizarre, P.T. Barnum scoured the world for curiosities, living or dead, genuine or fake. By means of outrageous stunts, repetitive advertising, and exaggerated publicity, Barnum excited international attention, making vast sums of money by displaying, and exploiting those with physical disabilities exploiting and promoting them as “Human Oddities” with names such as “The Four Legged Woman” “The Human Worm” The Ape Woman.
