Episode Summary

EDIT
Jekyll & Hyde
AIRED:
One of the most frightening horror stories ever written was Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Was this story, however, Robert Louis Stevenson's disturbing fantasy or was it based on a series of blood-curdling episodes that took place in the town of Edinburgh?

      • Narrator: Jekyll & Hyde, one of the most disturbing stories ever written. It is the tale of a man who discovers a potion which transforms him into his evil alter ego. A kindly doctor becomes a monster, capable of the most horrific crimes. Mr. Hyde is the original fictional psychopath. The book's a work of fiction but it has its roots in fact. When the author Robert Louis Stevenson wrote it in 1885 he based it on real characters and a real place, his home, the Scottish capital Edinburgh. Now our investigators have come to Edinburgh to uncover the lost city of Jekyll & Hyde. They'll meet local experts and explore the remains of ancient structures. They'll discover a vast hidden underworld, they will reveal the dark side of this city's history, the violence, the poverty, the double lives of some of its most respected men. In a secret network of tunnels they will find evidence of an illegal trade in human body parts.

      • Jan-Andrew Henderson: It's more than a psychological portrayal of man, it's a psychological portrayal of a society, and Edinburgh captures that perfectly. And Robert Louis Stevenson captured Edinburgh perfectly in Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.
