Ghost Watch

Since it was first broadcast on the night of 31 October 1992, Ghost Watch has become something of a notorious television phenomenon. Although it was in reality a 90 minute TV drama, it was filmed as if it was a live television broadcast.

I didn't see it at the time, and I haven't seen it since, but even knowing that it was nothing but a work of fiction, just reading about it and watching clips on YouTube still leaves me feeling uneasy and unsettled, a cold knot of doubt in the pit of my stomach - and I write some pretty unpleasant stuff myself from time to time. But then that's the power of fiction for you!

Thanks to Steve Parker for putting me onto this one.
