This newly re-packaged and expanded Ghost Stories for Christmas 6-DVD box set from the BFI incudes a total of 20 spine-tingling adaptations of the stories of M R James, plus three additional Ghost Stories for Christmas, broadcast on the BBC between 1968 and 2010

Highlights include Jonathan Miller's Whistle and I'll Come to You (1968), Lawrence Gordon Clark's A Warning to the Curious (1972) and the Andrew Davies adaptation of Charles Dicken's The Signalman (1976).

These adaptations, which have a subtlety and style all of their own, have been a major influence on many contemporary British horror filmmakers and have come to be regarded as some of the most acclaimed and brilliant British TV titles of all time.

Disc Two: The Stalls of Barchester (1971); A Warning to the Curious (1972)

Disc Four: The Signalman (1976); Stigma (1977); The Ice House (1978)
Disc Five: A View from a Hill (2005); Number 13 (2006)
