The BBC gives over a whole evening to an 'investigation into the supernatural'. Four respected presenters and a camera crew attempt to discover the truth behind 'The most haunted house in Britain', expecting a light-hearted scare or two and probably the uncovering of a hoax.

Ninety minutes later the BBC, and the country, was changed, and the consequences are still felt today. Written by
