The version I have is from a 16mm print for a US TV station, although I suspect this played on British TV first. The premise is simplicity itself. Rutherford and Stringer Davis travel around England by horse and carriage visiting three estates where ghosts have supposed (and famously) appeared.
If this sounds like a bit of nonsense, it is. If it sounds boring and stupid, it is not. The three stories are played out with deadly seriousness, as Miss Rutherford, in a hushed whisper, enquires of the ghostly sightings. The host of the home then tells a tale from long ago. Some the tales are better than others, but Margaret never misses a step. Her seriousness and great acting ability draw the viewer in and make this a totally enjoyable experience. It would be great fun to play this at Halloween for visiting friends. But perhaps this is more for an older crowd who can appreciate the subtleties of the show.
