Bert Hansell Folklore: Pregnancy and Psalms (11) RE: Query: Pregnancy and Psalms 13 Jun 97

This reminds me of a TV program I saw in England in the late fifties or early sixties

The story was about Jack Sheppard who was in Newgate prison and about to be hanged.
He had claimed that he would cheat death in the following way. If they would put his body in bed next to a young woman it would revive him
In the story the only woman who would consent to do this was herself condemned to death. They took his body from the gallows and put it into bed with her, but he did not revive.

However the woman got pregnant by this incident and was heself reprieved from the death sentence.
