Broadcast in the dying hours of Christmas Eve, the BBC's A Ghost Story for Christmas series was a fixture of the seasonal schedules throughout the 1970s. For ten years viewers were chilled and terrified by atmospheric literary adaptations as well as sinister contemporary tales. More recently the series was revived, to critical acclaim. With three suitably spooky episodes derived from the pen of the master of English ghost story MR James. So cosy up this Christmas to the terrifying collection that we're giving away in this special DVD boxset.
