I have just watched this short documentary with a sprinkling of some decent acting thrown in.

The presenter a Shaw Desmond informs us of slightly famous tales of ghostly apparitions based on true stories from mainly famous old English houses such as Hampton Court.

One tale speaks of a Policemen walking the grounds of Hampton Court late at night and hears disembodied voices. He then opens a gate to the gardens to let through a small group of fancy dressed people in Tudor garb; only they are not going to a fancy dress and subsequently disappear in front of the Policemen's eyes.

Rather dated as one would imagine but worth a view but possibly not a second looking.

I now intend to do some research into the piece and Mr Desmond.
