On Tuesday night, the BBC is set to broadcast a one-off special entitled, Ghosts in the Machine just in time for Hallowe'en.
You might have noticed in the upcoming TV listings that part of this spooky retrospective documentary (sound familiar?) will feature a short segment on Ghostwatch.
A good sign for fans, surely. Especially when you consider Auntie's (until recently, it seems) long-assumed, steadfast reluctance to revisit the "legendary Hallowe'en Hoax", since it was first broadcast, now almost two decades ago.
Who knows where this unexpected, new-found interest might lead? The first-ever repeat screening of the film, late one evening, perhaps? Or even the fabled 2-Disc Special 'BtC' Edition DVD arriving sometime in the not-too-distant future? ...We can only dream.
In the meantime, as a special treat for the film's upcoming 17th birthday, here's a sneak peek at an early DVD menu design (as it happens, a Chapter Select screen). Any release date for a Special Edition DVD remains TBA, though with increasing/continued support, it hopefully won't be too far down the line.
Thanks again for all the comments, subscriptions, invites and support, guys. Happy Hallowe'en, and here's to a prosperous 2010!
...Oh, and by the way - filming of Stephen Volk and Lesley Manning's interview for GitM had to be halted several times due to the sound of knocking pipes... No, really. Honest.
