Halloween special: Blythburgh on BBC 1

The One Show on Wednesday 31st had a predictable Halloween theme, except that this time, the setting was the dimly lit vast Blythburgh Church, with Gyles Brandreth reading to children the story of Black Shuck, the huge ghost dog said to haunt the church, and the subsequent “Devils Clawmarks” that appeared on the North Door.

To conjure up the spooky mood, in amongst the background scenes, was a picture of Mandalay on Southwold beach, and the other two cottages, with a bright moon above.

Unfortunately, I missed the live showing and could only see it on iPlayer, hence the rather poor photos.
