3 Ghostbusters

Greetings, Ghostwatchers!

I have a theory. Overall quality is measured by complexity of coding. An admittedly simplistic view, perhaps, but if true, one potential reason why some of us have such megalithic aversions to even the barest of spoilers, ahead of our latest, upcoming, un-screened installment, marked on the calendar in red felt pen.

Good luck, Studio!

Greetings, Ghostwatchers!

What a wonderful Hallowe'en! I'm pleased to report that National Sèance went fabulously well, once again, with many great/funny/interesting/concerning comments coming in, almost all of October 31st. But this year marked a rare, double-viewing for our annual event, with BBC Two's 'live' Inside No. 9 special, Dead Line, also airing slightly earlier, on Sunday 28th October.

... and from time to time, give us a comment on proceedings.

Greetings, Ghostwatchers!

Well, I did hope that we'd have some truly groovy news to share in time for National Séance, and here it is... Ghostwatch: Behind the Curtains is set to finally return, this time on Blu-Ray!

A reissue for the doc has been in the offing since... ooh, Prehistory, at the very least. It was wonderful to witness our film briefly shine on the unfathomably short-lived, BBC Store, last year (a future TV broadcast would also be lovely to behold, someday... ahem).

We have genuinely received so many requests for a re-release, and now, having sold out of DVDs, the time seems finally right to take the HD plunge. The doc was actually shot in Hi-Def, so short of some additional post-production to bring everything up to spec, there should be little issue in transferring the film to disc.

It was like a fake Hallowe'en thing, from the 80s...

Greetings, Ghostwatchers!

Well, who'd have thunk, Ghostwatch briefly returned once more to BBCTV last night, specifically BBC Two, during the most recent edition of Victoria Coren Mitchell-hosted, perpetual-brain-fazer, Only Connect. Yes, the game-show so intimidatingly tough, even I can't think of an adequately clever and pithy way to describe it.

... It's like, steak? A really well-done steak? Nah, forget it.

And it's the book that you wrote, your account... of your investigation into this case.
Greetings, Ghostwatchers!

A lot can happen in ten years. And twice-and-a-half as much in twenty-five. Even bearing that in mind, it's still fairly hard to believe, this year marks two landmark anniversaries. The 25th for Ghostwatch, and the 10th for Behind the Curtains.

To celebrate this pair of legendary milestones, and all that the project has achieved so far, it is with great pleasure to announce the arrival of a brand-new publication released in honour of the occasion, the Ghostwatch: Behind the Curtains - 10th Anniversary Special.

Clocking in at a hearty 68 pages, this perfect-bound A4 paperback is now available from Lulu, print-on-demand, in two options - standard Full Colour (£19.92 + p+p), or a reduced-price, Black-and-White edition (£9.99 + p+p).
