Ghostwatch: Behind the Curtains
Documentary revisiting a British TV phenomenon, featuring exclusive interviews with the show's main cast and crew, and never-before-seen material.
Director: Rich Lawden
On Hallowe'en Night, 1992, the BBC broadcast Ghostwatch, a ninety-minute TV movie hosted by veteran broadcasters, Sir Michael Parkinson and Sarah Greene. To the unsuspecting viewer, it appeared to be a live investigation into a malevolent haunting at a seemingly-ordinary council house in Northolt, London. Yet, despite being billed as a fictional drama, scores of viewers believed the event was actually happening for real. Ghostwatch brought about massive controversy. Some were keen to dismiss it as a hoax, while others continue to celebrate it as an original and rousing example of British horror. Two decades later, one of its record audience, then just an unsuspecting seven-year-old, would join forces with the show's creators to produce a retrospective documentary looking back at the show's unique conception, remarkable production and legendary aftermath.
Featuring exclusive, in-depth interviews with the show's main cast and crew, and never-before-seen material.
