Thanks James for letting us know about "A Photograph". Another title to add to the (long) list of titles I'm interested in getting (the Play for Today boxset).

Airing in the early hours of this coming Thursday morning on Talking Pictures TV is "a documentary-style lost short" called Salisbury Hall: The Ghost of Nell Gwyn. It stars Margaret Rutherford and her husband Stringer Davis (source: Sky TV listings). Not seen this before.

Have checked the IMDb, and it turns out there was a TV film which aired in the States on NBC called The Stately Ghosts of England. The UK title is Salisbury Hall: The Ghost of Nell Gwynn. There were three segments. Looks like Talking Pictures TV are only showing one of the three segments.

Thank you very much, I've just set it to record.

Hoping to see some reviews of Short Sharp Shocks up soon (out next Monday). Usually, Mondo Digital reviews some BFI titles (as does DVD Beaver).

I've now watched all the short films on Short Sharp Shocks. My favourites are Lock Your Door, The Lake and The Errand.

I know it's Black Friday week, but it's typical that all the offers and sales are happening around the same time. HMV on their website have a discount code for the BFI's release of Short Sharp Shocks.

I dithered a bit with getting Short Sharp Shocks from HMV (using the 20% off discount code), missing out on getting a few pounds knocked off the listing price.

Haven't yet looked at the full fortnight's worth of listings in the Christmas and New Year double issue TV listings magazine (just up to Christmas Day so far). Noticed that BBC Two are showing on Christmas Eve, repeats of MR James-related programmes:

- Martin's Close (10:15 pm - 10:45 pm)
- The Dead Room (10:45 pm - 11:15 pm)
- The Lost Ghost Story with Mark Gatiss (11:15 pm - 0:15 am).

Does anyone know if there will be a new Ghost Story for Christmas this year?

One was written but they couldn't make it for 2020 reasons. Hopefully next year.

Totally understandable regarding this year. The fact they have a story/script is a good sign though. I would hate if they completely stopped as we have nothing quite like it in the USA or Canada.

Off topic but for people who like ghost stories, there is one that is on YouTube from a show called 'Way Out hosted by Roald Dahl. The pilot is pretty eerie and it's called Dissolve to Black. Check it out. Unfortunately, it is unlikely to ever be released on home video along with the 13 other episodes.

Could kind soul tell me if these are truly region locked (I guess specifically the BBC 6 disc set)?

Not really off-topic, as there has been discussion these past few months about other ghost story TV series.

Thanks for posting about 'Way Out. Have looked into this series, and a book was written about it (it's available on Amazon).

There is an adaptation of William Hope Hodgeson's A Voice in the Night, which isn't exactly a ghost story but falls into the category of what was called "ghost stories" when it was published. It is on YouTube but everyone says it is too dark. I have a 16mm print of it but my telecine died. It was made for the show Suspicion.
Another Hodson ghost story was adopted and was a proposed pilot for a psychic detective series that never was bought, called the Wishing Room. I had this on 16mm and made a VHS copy at some point. It wasn't particularly creepy though.
Another that I had on 16mm was A.M. Burrage's playmates which might qualify as creepy for TV for it's time. I sold this as well after making a copy. I still have A Voice in the Night though, but never watched it.

You may find these all on YouTube.

At the back of the new issue of TV & Satellite Week magazine, it mentions that an adaptation of an MR James ghost story called The Mezzotint is airing on BBC Two later in the year at Christmas. Only two castmembers are mentioned in the brief news story, Rory Kinnear and Frances Barber.

The Mezzotint was announced a couple of weeks ago.
