Most Haunted Live is on the telly at the moment, you may be watching live or you may be recording it and skipping the boring bits when you watch it back (not quite getting into the ‘Spirit’ of things). Anyway I know that there are A LOT of people out there that love the show.
Anyway – not sure if you knew this BUT the 2-8th series will be released completly soon.
Blue Peter presenter come ghost hunter Yvette Fielding and hubby Karl Beattie are joined by their fearless team of ghost busters including psychics Derek Acorah (Seasons 1-6) and David Wells (Seasons 4-8) and parapsychologist Ciaran O?Keefe investigating the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Romania and the United States? spookiest phenomena yet in Most Haunted Seasons 2-5 and Most Haunted Seasons 6-8 set for DVD release by Universal Playback on 26th January 2009 and 23rd February 2009.
Set against a background of strict parapsychology guidelines and extensive historical research, you can follow the team on their ghostly travels investigating the paranormal. Highlight episodes include ?Pengersick Castle? ? This ancient and crumbling castle invokes the troubled maritime and smuggling history of Cornwall. It is said to be built on the site of a Tudor Manor around 1500 and plays host to ghost sightings of sailors and monks, ?Edinburgh Vaults? ? A worldly haunt of the city’s rogues, villains, prostitutes ? and murderers. The vaults were sealed off and completely abandoned in 1815 and weren’t rediscovered until 1985 – and since then, numerous ghostly sightings and experiences have been reported, ?Schooner Hotel? ? A listed 17th Century Coaching Inn and the hub of Alnmouth village for the past 300 years. Guests have included Charles Dickens, Basil Rathbone, Douglas Bader and even King George III. It has been twice awarded The Most Haunted Hotel in Great Britain and is reputed to have over 60 individual ghosts.
Each episode features both paranormal and scientific explanations for the various phenomena that occur. Any information provided by the medium from claimed interactions with spirits is then analysed by the historian to see if it can be verified.
Parapsychologist Ciaran O?Keefe is actually the star of Most Haunted and probably the most credable person in the whole thing. His analysis does shun 95% of events and experiences, but this leaves the other 5% really interesting
