As a Christmas treat in the late 1960s and 70s, the BBC produced adaptations of ghost stories based in the works of MR James, Charles Dickens and other authors, which were broadcast to terrified viewers in the dead of winter. This was a tradition that was briefly revived by the BBC between 2007 and 2010.

These adaptations, which have a subtlety and style all of their own, have been a major influence on many contemporary British horror filmmakers and have come to be some of the most sought after British TV titles of all time by their legions of eager fans.
