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 One: Whistle and I'll Come to You (1968); Whistle and I'll Come to You (2010) Disc Two: The Stalls of Barchester (1971); A Warning to the Curious (1972) Disc Three: Lost Hearts (1973); The Treasure of Abbot Thomas (1974); The Ash Tree (1975) Disc Four: The Signalman (1976); Stigma (1977); The Ice House (1978) Disc Five: A View from a Hill (2005); Number 13 (2006) Disc Six: Classic Ghost Stories 1986 (Robert Powell reads The Mezzotint, The Ash Tree, Wailing Well, The Rose Garden and Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad)
