i was only young watching this but i really enjoyed the show being only 14 at the time i believed it real, but i clocked on to the credits at the end. My sister 3 years my senior was absolutly terrified she was babysitting me and my brother at the time. excellent, stick it back on see what reaction you get now adays. Are people still as gullible?

I bought the dvd not so long ago. I sat down to watch it - then had to switch it off, it was too terrifying. I think it's because everyone and everything in it seems so ordinary, and the events are so subtly done that it's so scary. The night it was on, I sat with my three friends watching it, and once it was over, we all had to go to the toilet - but were too scared to go out into the dark hallway. Also, my memory of this was that it lasted 3 or 4 hours, but in fact, it was only 90 minutes. The guy who wrote Ghostwatch is Stephen Volk, who wrote the recent series Afterlife - which I had to record, and watch in the daylight, otherwise it gave me nightmares.

I was only 7 when this was aired and I was terrified! I refused to sleep the whole night and had the light on. I was convinced eyes were watching me and something would come to get me. I watched it with my dad and he was laughing he knew it was a hoax but I believed it was all true. Sarah Green didnt appear on live and kicking the next morning and I honestly thought she was dead! I watched parts of it now and I even though I know its a hoax,but it still gives me goose bumps.......

Ghostwatch was not a hoax. It was a drama which used documntary as its structure. It was, I think, part of the Screen One series of plays that BBC1 were phasing out, alas. Indeed, the Screen One ident was ran before the play began, and the Radio Times covered it - but as I recall, it interviewed the four 'presenters' and just talked about their belief or lack of it in the supernatural... Indeed for the makers of the play, the word 'hoax' never crossed their lips. But it was SUPERB!! I tuned in half way through, a tad drunk after an early night in the pubs and thought 'I thought this was a play?' It was only when I recognised the actress playing Dr Pascoe had been in a sitcom called Shelley only a few weeks earlier that I relaxed. That's how good it was in conveying its atmosphere. Sorry to harp on, but most of the fuss came from those afterwards who couldn't tell it was a drama, and not reality. Like most of us!
