Aaaand here's another spooktobery new episode of It IS The Same Log (because these days we are *all* Heather in the woods sobbing "It's not the same log!" over and over again but... I gotta tell ya... it *is*) and once again I (Jack) am joined by Elliot Chapman and George Daniel Lea.
This time we tackle the legendary and infamous Ghostwatch, created and aired by the BBC in 1992 much to their own horror. Written by Stephen Volk, directed by Lesley Manning.
I would probably call this one of my very favourite pieces of uncanny media, brilliantly crafted, genuinely scary, and a veritable bottomless pit of implications. I don't find much disagreement from my co-hosts and, once again, our enthusiasm runs riot. We cover many topics from the BBC internal reaction, the public furore, media 'realism', gothic marxism, etc. We were even plagued during recording by terrifyingly appropriate technical glitches. Skype got media hauntological on our asses.
Once again, my backers got days of advance access.
