Product Description

BBC Ghost Stories: A View From a Hill + Number 13
Films by Luke Watson + Pier Wilkie

A View From a Hill (2005)
A film by Luke Watson
When young museum curator Fanshawe is sent to catalogue a debt-laden squire's archaeological collection, he uses a pair of homemade binoculars borrowed from his genial host to survey local 'Gallows Hill'. The glasses seem to give him a strange new ability and, ignoring all warnings about their necromantic creator, Fanshawe carries out his historical researches. But the bloody past of the area is best left undisturbed

Adapted from a short tale by M R James, the master of the English ghost story, A View From a Hill remains faithful in spirit to its literary creator and features an excellent lead performance from Mark Letheren as the uptight, doomed Fanshawe

Number 13 (2006)
A film by Pier Wilkie
Dissatisfied with his hotel room, Professor Anderson demands to be moved to number 12 where he can work undisturbed. But, infuriated by the ghoulish noises made nightly by his neighbour, he is soon driven to investigate the diabolical secrets of the old hotel and its mysteriously vanishing room 13.

M R James' spooky tale was shot in the grounds and library of Winchester Cathedral, lending a rich period atmosphere to this terrifying adaptation.
