    Reality and Fiction have blurred together many times on TV and media. This is one of the very first cases that gained mainstream attention before the BBC made attempts to cover it up.

    Ghostwatch was a TV Programme that aired on 31st October 1992, appearing to be a live broadcast going horribly wrong. Gaining 20 - 30,000 phone calls all at once while it was live

    Imagine though if you turned on the telly right after the disclaimer 😅 You'd be like... this isn't real... right? Why are they all acting like it's real? You'd be frantically leafing through Radio Times trying to see if there was anything written about it ha. Or calling your friends to see if they were watching

    I've got this on DVD. I was sixteen in 1992, and I'll be honest, I saw this, and almost believed in ghosts after. 🤯

    I was 15when this aired on TV. Me, my sister an my parents and Grandparents crowded around the TV and watched. We absolutely messed our pants. It was terrifying, but utterly brilliant. We knew it wasn't real, but it was so well done, even with some of the slightly dodgy acting. Though, to be honest, the dodgy acting added to it, made it feel more real.

    Well, I watched this. You'd have to be pretty naive to fall for this. It wasn't particularly well done. Unless you believe in this sort of thing to begin with, which I have no reason to, it was pretty typical cheesy 70's t.v. In fact, it was actually cheesier than most.

    Literally every ghost-hunting show does this. Sometimes even with local celebrities. I just cringe at it.

    The parallels between this and the panic that ensued after War of the Worlds was broadcasted over the radio in 1938 is really interesting and a bit sad lmao

    not gonna lie tho they fucking nailed it if a horror broadcast has consequences like this then they did it right maybe a bit too right still tho I'm of course sorry for the people who actually got PTSD from this and rip to the guy that killed himself because of it

    So Ghostwatch is basically ARG before ARG, on TV, broadcast to public. Michael Parkinson is genius.

    The way I always looked at it as a kid what if there's a ghost in my house, I mean, what's it going to do "get" me? It's not even physical, how can that hurt me!? I was much more afraid of burglars than something that would go through me if it tried to touch me.

    All these comments with thousands of likes dissing the audience are completely missing the point of this video- it's pretty sad. The whole point was that nothing like this had been done before and people weren't prepared for it, and that the BBC didn't warn people adequately given that there was no warning on the actual program.

    Don't let your kids watch something if you haven't looked into it at least a little bit. Pretty simple. This show wasn't even for kids, so, these angry parents have no leverage on this one

    The acting on that show was so awful, especially from the stage school children. Remember their accents that didn't relate to their "mother" or the area that they were supposed to live in? It was clearly Dramarama (remember that show?) with a slightly bigger budget lol

    i'm traumatized slightly by watching ghost videos on youtube when i was probably like,,,5. there were times when i was too scared to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. i still sometimes get scared being in the dark or my basement alone. but i don't blame the ppl who made the videos (some of which my small mind 100% believed were true bc they were vlog style) and i still love horror movies and ARGs and other spooky stuff. lmao those parents way overreacted

    Did the producers know of the "McPherson Tape"? It was released in 1989, just a few years prior to "Ghostwatch". Did any of them see that film to get some inspiration or was it not yet popular in the US or the UK?
