true Hor­ror

Lovers of things that go bump in the night will avidly de­vour this new se­ries which tells sto­ries of true-life hor­ror through a mix­ture of in­ter­views and drama-re­con­struc­tion.

This week we be­gin with the tale of what has been dubbed the ‘Ami­tyville of Wales’. Artist Bill Rich (Adam Leese, right) and his part­ner Liz seemed to have found the idyl­lic home in which to bring up their young chil­dren – a farm­house set amid the breath­tak­ing beauty of the Welsh coun­try­side, with an en­chant­ing gar­den from which pigs would hap­pily wan­der into their kitchen. But the bu­colic dream soon be­gan to darken, with an in­creas­ing num­ber of un­ex­plained events and ex­tra­or­di­nary vi­sions that were wit­nessed by all mem­bers of the fam­ily.

While the breath­lessly cred­u­lous style may leave some view­ers de­spair­ing of the ab­sence of a scep­ti­cal point of view, oth­ers will rel­ish this re­minder that there may be far more to this world than ra­tio­nal sci­ence can ac­count for.
