Episode notes

In a suitably macabre special episode for the season, Janet returns this week to speak to Jeremy Dyson, author, musician, screenwriter and of course, member of the League of Gentleman.

Jeremy introduces his childhood book 'Haunted Britain' by the curiously named Anthony D. Hippisley Coxe; a brilliant, terrifying and often unintentionally amusing guide to the most haunted spots in the UK. Where, for example, might you see the ghost of Sir Francis Bacon's chicken? Which spot did young Jeremy beg his parents to take him to visit? Are the photos within the book bad or just haunted? How did this first book inspire Jeremy in his later career? Join Jeremy and Janet to find out!
