We'll actually spool it back to the point where you tell us...

Greetings, Ghostwatchers!

Anyone familiar with the show's Wikipedia page will surely be aware of this quote:

"... Sarah Greene had advertised the programme on her Saturday morning children's show Going Live. This had included a 'visit' to the location of the 'haunting' and gave the impression that she was taking part in a 'reality show' and not a drama."

Recently, we were lucky enough to check out three full editions of Going Live! to verify this longstanding claim - dated, 24.10.92 (the week before transmission), 31.10.92 (the day the show went out) and 7.11.92 (the week after), but alas, no mention of Ghostwatch could be found.

Unless anyone has any additional episodes of Going Live! available for viewing (if so, by all means, drop us a line), it appears as though yet another Ghostwatch-inspired urban myth has once again, potentially bit the dust (just wait 'til you hear what we've discovered about Blair Witch...).

Even though we were unable to find what we were looking for, I must say just how great it was to catch Going Live! again for the first time in absolute years. Trevor and Simon's skits, in particular, remain a constant joy (so much so, that we're now actively looking to secure a sponsorship deal with Pot Fish - "Britain's No.1 instant fish-based snack in a pot").

There is some good news to report, however, as we were also able to secure the full Points of View, and Biteback editions where Ghostwatch IS discussed.

Incidentally, we are still on the lookout for the fabled TEASER TRAILER and POST-CREDITS CONTINUITY ANNOUCNEMENT for Ghostwatch, so if anyone remembers when they went out/has a copy they'd like to share, feel free to get in touch and let us know. The search continues!

Look! Everybody wants to see him!

If Arfon Jones' wonderful 'Ghostwatching' piece, from just a few days ago wasn't enough, now here's 'Pipes Is Coming For You...' by artist, Kieran Madden.

Great to see so much creativity stemming from Ghostwatch recently. Keep it up, Ghostwatchers!

  ...And try not to have sleepless nights.
