Show Notes

We talk to Stephen Volk - Screenwriter and Novelist who created the landmark TV drama Ghostwatch. What was you doing on Halloween night back in 1992? I was sat at my friend's house watching the BBC and a show that would have us all screaming at the screen. We knew all along it was a Drama and not real life even though it was presented by Michael Parkinson, Sarah Greene, Mike Smith and Craig Charles - of course we did.... didn't we? Almost thirty years later, 'Pipes' is still as terrifying to this very day (just that name alone send chills - 'Pipes'). It was a pleasure to chat to the show's creator all about his career and this landmark TV event that had 11 million viewers on it's broadcast and received thousands of phone calls - many of which were complaints! Never to be repeated and hidden by the BBC, it truly was and is, a one of a kind event and it was amazing to chat to Stephen all about it as we approach Halloween!
