With their terrifying demons, doomed protagonists and lurking terrors, the stories of MR James – the acknowledged master of the modern English ghost story – formed the basis of many classic BBC adaptations.
The nine films collected here from such acclaimed directors as Jonathan Miller (Alice in Wonderland) and Lawrence Gordon Clark (Harry’s Game), proved immensely popular when they were first broadcast and continue to shock and delight audiences today.
Includes over four discs: Whistle and I’ll Come to You (1968 & 2010 versions); The Stalls of Barchester; A Warning to the Curious; Lost Hearts; The Treasure of Abbot Thomas; The Ash tree; A View from a Hill; Number 13.
