Two BBC classic films brought to you in one box set!
The BBC broadcast "Ghostwatch" on the 31st of October 1992. It seemed to be a live broadcast which was a cross between Crimewatch and the movie Poltergeist. Although pure fiction, the masterly combination of great scripting, intuitive direction and perfect casting made the supernatural pastiche appear frighteningly real. Despite being part of BBC Drama's Screen One series, the presence of Michael Parkinson convinced thousands of people it was real. The drama caused uproar and was banned from repeat transmission for over a decade.
Its legacy lives on, cited as an inspiration for The Blair Witch Project and Derren Brown's The Séance, Ghostwatch is regarded as a classic of the genre.
The Stone Tape
Nigel Kneal's classic ghost story The Stone Tape, first broadcast by the BBC in 1972, represents his best work outside of the Quatermas series.
A team of scientists, eager to discover a new recording medium, take over a brooding gothic mansion. On moving in, however, they find one key room unfinished and the builders refusing to work there. Claims of strange noises and feelings of unease are dismissed. However, the scientists soon discover that the renovation work has disturbed something behind the stone walls, something ancient and malevolent.
