Description

As a Christmas treat in the late 1960s and 70s, the BBC produced adaptations of ghost stories based on the works of MR James, the Cambridge academic and author, of some of the most spine-tingling tales in the English language. These stories were broadcast to terrified viewers in the dead of winter. This was a tradition that was briefly revived by the BBC between 2005 and 2010, and this collection, Volume 5, features two relatively recent MR James adaptations: A View From a Hill (2005) and Number 13 (2006). Both were screened to acclaim from critics and fans, and are regarded as perfect complements to the vintage BBC Christmas Ghost Story productions. English Subtitles.

Full description from the producer:

As a Christmas treat in the late 1960s and 70s, the BBC produced adaptations of ghost stories based on the works of MR James, the Cambridge academic and author of some of the most spine-tingling tales in the English language, which were broadcast to terrified viewers in the dead of winter. This was a tradition that was briefly revived by the BBC between 2007 and 2010.

These adaptations, which have a subtlety and style all of their own, have been a major influence on many contemporary British horror filmmakers and have come to be some of the most sought after British TV titles by their legions of eager fans.

This collection, Volume 5, features two relatively recent MR James adaptations: A View From a Hill (2005) and Number 13 (2006). Both were screened to acclaim from critics and fans, and are regarded as perfect complements to the vintage BBC Christmas Ghost Story productions. English Subtitles.
