This Australian boxset contains the complete nine BBC dramatisations (two versions of 'Oh Whistle And I'll come To You'), produced between 1968 and 2010, of M.R.James' classic ghost stories.
Also contains the Christmas 2000 drama, with Christoper Lee as James trying out three of his ghost stories on his students. Interestingly Lee, (born 1922), was himself a pupil of James and can remember the man.
These are top quality productions that suitably conjure up the atmosphere of some of the best ghost stories ever written.
I also thoroughly recommend The Complete Ghost Stories of M. R. James - Volume 1. The Complete Ghost Stories of M. R. James - Volume 2 (Craftsman Audio) read by David Collings.

This superb box set cannot be faulted. The transfers are of great quality and all the programmes are rare and wonderful gems. The classic BBC productions are all delivered with an ambition, authority and sophistication sadly lacking in so much of their contemporary output. If the latest version of "Oh Whistle" isn't true to the original tale, and may upset purists, it is at least an interesting, well acted, evocatively filmed and very atmospheric reworking with some decidedly chilling moments. Still, that aside, the others will prove to be a delight for everyone and at under £50, from some suppliers, much better value than the forthcoming UK release. I cannot recommend this box set too strongly.

This set claims to contain the complete BBC adaptations of MRJames's ghost storie from 1968 to date. Unfortunately, grand though it is, ALL Robert Powell's readings are absent, and one of Christopher Lee's efforts is missing. In addition, one of the Lee readings present has not been formatted for 16:9 tvs. I emailed Shock in Australia to enquire about these matters but got no reply. Let's hope the upcoming series of UK dvds of BBC ghost stories fills in the gaps.

Finally someone had to compile the M.R. James ghost stories and the Aussies had to do it. Anyways the land of the down under did a good job and compiles all the M.R. James ghost stories for Christmas that was shown on the Beeb. The transfer is excellent as it could be. The only problem I have is this weird Aussie video box lock on their DVDs which is impossible to take out without a screwdriver or a magnet. Got so pissed off that I almost destroyed a DVD case trying to disarm them. Otherwise the set is highly recomended.
