Broadcast in the dying hours of Christmas Eve, A Ghost Story for Christmas was a much-loved fixture in the BBC’s seasonal schedule during the 1970s. Viewers awaited each sinister instalment with anticipation and its enduring appeal gave rise to a revival in the 2000s, when three more episodes were produced. This definitive collection contains all 12 episodes of the classic A Ghost Story for Christmas series, the entire Classic Ghost Stories series (presented by Robert Powell), the MR James episodes of Spine Chillers (presented by Michael Bryant), and three of the Ghost Stories for Christmas with Christopher Lee instalments from 2000.
