Classic Ghost Stories of M R James
  • Description

    After the success of their Ghost Stories for Christmas collection, the BFI presents another volume of classic BBC adaptations of the chilling work of M R James.

    These partially-dramatized readings by actor Robert Powell (Jesus of Nazareth, Mahler, Tommy) were originally broadcast to terrified audiences during the Christmas of 1986. Finally made available here for the very first time on DVD, these blood-curdling tales include such classics as ‘The Mezzotint’, ‘The Ash Tree’, ‘Wailing Well’, ‘The Rose Garden’ and ‘Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad’.

    Also included as an exclusive bonus on this release are the three M R James episodes from the 1980 BBC TV series Spine Chillers – ‘The Mezzotint’, ‘A School Story’ and ‘The Diary of Mr Poynter’ – presented by celebrated actor Michael Bryant (star of the 1974 Ghost Story for Christmas episode ‘The Treasure of Abbot Thomas’).

    • First time on DVD for these BBC TV adaptations of classic M R James stories
