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 2005 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. This final volume in the BFI's series includes two more recent MR James adaptations: A View From A Hill (2005) and Number 13 (2006). Both were screened to acclaim from critics and fans, and are regarded as perfect compliments to the vintage BBC Christmas Ghost story productions.
