As a Christmas treat in the late 1960s and 70s, the BBC produced adaptations of ghost stories based on the works of MR James, the Cambridge academic and author of some of the most spine-tingling tales in the English language, which were broadcast to terrified viewers in the dead of winter. This was a tradition that was briefly revived by the BBC between 2007 and 2010.

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 some of the most sought after British TV titles of all time by their legions of eager fans.

Volume one in the BFI's BBC Ghost Stories collection pairs both versions of the terrifying Whistle and I'll Come To You: the 1968 adaptation directed by Jonathan Miller and starring Sir Michael Hordern, and the more recent reinterpretation, starring the legendary John Hurt, from 2010.

 Excellent value!

Years ago the BFI released the original 1968 version and just that on DVD and was considerably expensive then. Deleted after a short while it could cost a lot of money online when it became a rarity. Now BFI have finally released this classic ghost story with Michael Hordern again along with the 2010 remake with John Hurt on one disc. The remake isn't as good ( as remakes seldom are) but nevertheless great value for money.
