We’ve got to go straight back to Foxhill Drive, where things are happening...

Yesterday, Stephen Volk, Lesley Manning and I met up in London to discuss Ghostwatch: Behind the Curtains in further detail. Interest in the doc is now at an all-time high, and we are determined as ever to make it happen.

The BtC Youtube page and Blog are still both going strong; not surprisingly, having proven especially busy around Hallowe'en - with some DVD copies of the original film at that time selling for as much as £60.00 online. Further meetings are likely to follow, with news to be posted if and when it happens.


Don't forget, the official BtC Forums are still open to anyone who wishes to register. Oh, and congratulations to Youtube user, 15098036 for becoming our 100th subscriber. Cheers!

Where's Pipes?

Happy New Year, Ghostwatchers!

By far the most asked question that comes the way of the blog concerns the mysterious, fleeting appearances from Ghostwatch's notoriously elusive poltergeist...

Villanous spectre, Mr. Pipes makes a total of eight physical appearances in Ghostwatch (minus Cherise Wesson's sketch seen at 00:19:00).

Recent online rumours of a fabled 'ninth sighting' at 01:16:18 were later debunked by director, Lesley Manning (see below). Irrefutable proof, or just 'faces in the fire'? Decide for yourself...

Due to the re-inclusion of the Screen One 'Boulder' ident in the most recent DVD release, the following figures are divided into BFI VERSION and 101 VERSION.
Haunted Bedroom #1: 00:21:00 / 00:21:18
The Voice: 00:30:30 / 00:30:50
Outside with Craig: 00:47:25 / 00:47:44
In the Kitchen: 00:54:59 / 00:55:17
Haunted Bedroom #2: 01:11:56 / 01:12:14
Under the Stairs: 01:17:12 / 01:17:31
Close-up in Static: 01:27:41 / 01:27:59
On the Gantry: 01:27:42 / 01:28:01
