Not too sure how old everyone is so some of you might not remember this (UK only too)

But did any of you watch Ghostwatch?? It was a BBC program that was shown in 1992. Everyone believed it was a live real program but turns out it was all a hoax. Apparently it frightened the heck out of people and there was a huge backlash at the BBC. It had Sarah Greene, Michael Parkingson doing the 'investigation' of a haunted house.

One guy apparently hung himself and it was blamed on what he saw on the program!!

The reason I ask is because I have ordered the DVD!! It was banned from ever been shown again on the BBC but they finally allowed it to released on DVD a while ago.

I never watched the original as I was only 11yrs old, but I am expecting it to be fairly spooky!! Although I imagine it would have been much more frightening if you thought it was a like show!! Twisted Evil

I have never seen it, though it does sound familiar. Now I am interested to check it and see what it is all about. Haven't seen a good ghost show in a long time

I think many ghost shows on TV are hoax's. I found proof on youtube that Most Haunted could be a Hoax.....Or at least it proves Derek is a fake. Either way, it shows they act out most of it.

I don't remember Ghostwatch Confused But i would have only been 5yrs at the time, so mother probably never let me watch it XD

I remember watching that, I had just started comprehensive school at the time, and i was living at my nans house watching up stairs in the bedroom. Got to be honest, I didn't react to it, cos it was clearly flase by the bad scripting and acting.

However, nowdays, now that i have lived a little, i could watch casper the friendly ghost and want to run a mile. lol
