The Enfield Poltergeist-BBC radio documentary

The Enfield Poltergeist has been something that’s interested me as a child, not because I’m a massive believer in ghosts and the likes, but because it’s such a fascinating case plus it inspired one of the finest bits of television ever, Ghostwatch.

This is a curious contemporary BBC radio documentary of the time, and it’s a fabulous wee bit of archive. What’s so evocative are the clear differences in accents rather than the bland middle class mush we often hear these days on radio, this actually feels tactile and real which adds to it.

Put aside your feelings on the case, this is a great listen and worth your time.
