Ghost Stories for Christmas - Part 5

After the semi-dramatic M.R. James adaptations read by Robert Powell, the BBC also produced a short series of further readings in 2000 featuring Christopher Lee as James: "The Stalls of Barchester Cathedral", "The Ash Tree", "Number 13" and "A Warning to the Curious".

All of these "M.R. James' Ghost Stories for Christmas" have been included in the new BFI boxset, but there are two available as a taster on YouTube. Enjoy!

Number 13

A Warning to the Curious

I'm sure you're sick to death of M.R. James now. Don't worry, I have something different for you tomorrow.
