Product Information

  This newly re-packaged and expanded Ghost Stories for Christmas 6-DVD box set from the BFI includes a total of 20 spine-tingling adaptations of the stories of M R James, plus three additional Ghost Stories for Christmas, broadcast by the BBC between 1968 and 2010.

  Highlights include Jonathan Miller's Whistle and I'll Come to You (1968), Lawrence Gordon Clark's A Warning to the Curious (1972) and the Andrew Davies adaptation of Charles Dickens' The Signalman (1976).
