The Red Room

One of the reasons I am who I am and do what I do is because of a BBC show that broadcast when I was eight years old. It was called Spine Chillers and it was essentially Jackanory with ghost stories. I have never thought to look for it, assuming it was either long gone or maybe even a figment of my imagination. But then, a few moments ago, someone tweeted this video. It’s Freddie Jones reading The Red Room by H.G. Wells and it is magnificent.

For you nostalgia freaks, here’s the TV listings for the day it was broadcast.
