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. This superb box set brings together all 12 of these celebrated films: Whistle and I'll Come to You (1968) The Stalls of Barchester (1971) A Warning to the Curious (1972) Lost Hearts (1973) The Treasure of Abbot Thomas (1974) The Ash Tree (1975) The Signalman (1976) Stigma (1977) The Ice House (1978) A View from a Hill (2005) Number 13 (2006) Whistle and I'll Come to You (2010)
