Strange and dated, but...
29 January 2019 | by BeltaneEveSee all my reviews

Randomly stumbled upon this on youtube and was immediately intrigued...this is not a ghost show in the way you might expect but a sort of pseudo-documentary filmed and edited in a style that screams typical mid-60s British TV, from the over-wrought music to the dramatic close-ups. This is a fascinating piece of history that seems to try to straddle a line of relating legends at face value while ever so slightly hamming it up for dramatic purposes and could almost fall into the camp of unintentional parody at times, with silly fake pics being displayed as 'proof' and Rutherford's almost smug demeanor as she corrects people about various terms relating to the paranormal. It's honestly hard to tell at times if this was intended to be taken completely seriously but it's pure entertainment and worth the view.
