Phil’s world A paranormal view
My all-time favourite paranormal series is Ghost Hunters, narrated by William Woollard (this isn’t the American show by the same name). Phil Whyman is a famous paranormal expert who’s appeared on TV’S Most Haunted and Scream Team (Living TV)
As someone with a keen interest in the subject, I watch a lot of programmes based on the paranormal. I just can’t help it! So, for those of you who can’t get your fill of all things spooky, here are the shows that I recommend you look at, most of which can be found on satellite TV, or on the good old Internet.
Ghost Hunters is a British show, and dates from the late 1990s. It features accounts of paranormal incidents from witnesses, and has a scientific point of view from people in the field, such as Professor Archie Roy and Mary Rose Barrington. Mediums also feature regularly in this series. It covers stuff from ley lines to poltergeists. There were four series of
and the DVDS are now available to buy if you can’t find the episodes to watch on TV or online. I’d rate this 10 out of 10!
Worth it Another of my favourites is
Paranormal Witness. Today, it’s on its fifth series, but I don’t know if it will get a sixth, so it’s worth catching. It features all kinds of true paranormalthemed stories, and includes interviews with those who were involved in the experiences and dramatisations. There’s not much in the way of scientific analysis, but it’s still very interesting.
This is an American show, so focuses on that country, but there’s an episode or two based elsewhere, such as Mexico.
I’d give this production eight out of 10.
Another American show that I watch is A Haunting. It’s been on air since 2005, and there are nine series for you to catch up on, covering hauntings, exorcisms and possession… Some of the accounts are truly scary! I would award this a seven out of 10.
Now you wouldn’t think that a show from New Zealand would be in my list, but you’d be totally wrong! Sadly, only one series was ever produced of Ghost Hunt (2005). Featuring three paranormal investigators, each of the episodes explored some of the country’s most ghost-laden locations, from theatres and cemeteries to old mansions and railway stations. If you can catch an episode, then it’s definitely worth watching. Another eight out of 10. Well, there you go, my list of some great paranormal shows for you to enjoy until next month’s Chat it’s fate comes out. Settle down and turn off the lights… On second thoughts, leave them on!
