This was screened on sunday 27th December on ITV and is on Catch up now..
I just watched it.. its very interesting and what is more Harry Price actually existed and was a Paranormal investigator who started out to disprove ghosts and that there were scientific explanaitions for phenomena. He was a Sceptic initially but by the end of his life and from his findings he became a believer..
This 90 minute program is a dramatisation of the facts as they say.. But the science even in those early days was very similar to how investigations are carried out to this day..

I researched this man many years ago now..Along with a friend weposed as 'Researcher' and were given acess to his work, papers and findings from the Bury St Edmunds Record office... :eek:
If you can get Catch up do watch it... It is fascinating.. I'd be intesrested in what you think... :angel:

I also knew of Harry Price's work. It was covered in The Unexplained - a series of magazines on the paranormal published in the 1980's. I watched the program as it was broadcast and it did remind me of those physiological thrillers that permeated the 1950's - a husband tries to drive his wife mad to get his hands on her inheritance by inventing ghosts - type scenario. Although it wasn't until the last half hour that ''Oh yes, I recognise this story line! " became evident. :)

I had hoped this would be the 'Pilot' for a series but I guess not..
In those times all kinds ofshennanigans and fakery occured.. In a way similarities of Darren Day..

Ghosties are not always stressed out sleep walking ladies..
