Ghostwatching  (1992)

Alternative Titles: The Sounds of Hell, Minimoog Murders

Genre: Horror/Drama

Plot:
Infamous BBC screenplay that got a bigger reaction on Right to Reply than any other single programme.

Set in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, the crew are all haunted by the hellish sounds they have to produce. Decapitation (1) Thunder (3) and Screams (2 and 4) are used repeatedly by an unseen force, to drive the staff insane.

Starring: Michael Parkinson, Sarah Greene, Mike Smith, Rod Hull and Emu.

Quotes:
Rod Hull: "And now over to Emu for our outside weather broadcast..."

Most Helpful User Review:
Acted as if it were a real-life documentary, and is remembered for scaring millions of half-wit viewers who couldn't see through the transparent, wooden acting.
