The Story of the Ghost Story

Here we have a (very) brief synopsis of the development of the ghost story taking in such notables as Shakespeare, Horace Walpole, Sheridan Le Fanu, Charles Dickens, M.R. James, Algernon Blackwood, R. Chetwynd-Hayes, Robert Aickman and others and some behind the scenes glimpses of the making of the adaptations of both James' 'A View From A Hill' and Aickman's 'The Cicerones'.

The 30 minute runtime means much is glossed over and omitted but it's crammed to the gills and as a quick overview it serves its purpose well.
