“***About the Most Haunted programme*** ”

Written on: 06/02/2009 by kissme2070 (6 reviews written)

Good Points
Great if you believe in the paranormal.

It's also good when the expert can't explain temperature changes and paranormal activity.

Great entertainment and also quite scary at times!

Bad Points
You may not believe any of this and a lot of people belive this is all made up!

General Comments
***About the Most Haunted programme***

This programme is shown on Living TV and follows a team visiting Haunted places and area's which are supposedly Haunted. As the team explore derelict and supposedly haunted buildings you will hear and see everything they do. The team has visited many famous buildings including Chillingham Castle in Northumberland, Theatre Royal in London, Charnock Hall in Lancashire and the list goes on.



The team has a live audience in or near the location and they also have webcams set up on the location they are investigating, so you can watch this online and report to the forums whether you see or hear anything strange. In the studio they also have a Historian & a Darks Arts Specialist/Demonologist.



With the crew they also have a Medium who picks up names and people who are haunting the building as well as other history about the building. The Historian & Dark Arts Specialist job is too look up the information that the Medium comes up with to see if they can verify anything. With the team is also a parapsychologist who tries to come up with explanations about the noises or things you may see or hear whilst on location.



They tour the location in the day and then the real excitement starts when they go to night vision and they are left in complete darkness without being able to see who they are standing next too, and who they might walk into!



The team will carry out experiments and do Ouija boards to try to get into contact with the spirits. (Please don't try this at home!). A lot of the time they do get a response and they ask questions and sometimes the answers can be not only surprising but very scary as well. They have also be known to use Voodoo dolls which Fred Batt has made. After using the voodoo doll it is then given back to Fred Batt where he does a spell which makes the doll un-usable. (again, Please don't try this at home!)



They have also tied a team member to a chair and have called out asking for things to this person to happen. Please bear in mind that the person tied into the chair has no ear-piece and is in a different room, so they have no idea what the rest of the team may be asking to happen. This experiment is very effective as it usually always works and you will see the team member in the chair clutch their leg or arm.

***How did I get into this?***

My mum start watching this maybe 2-3 years ago and I sometimes used to watch it with her. It never used to interest me and it always used to look really boring until I watched it one night with my mum and lots of activity happened when they visited a Haunted location. (I can't remember which one this was!)



***Do I really believe this?***

At first I wasn't too sure whether to believe the things which were going on or not. On some location not a lot of things happened apart from banging and whistling and anyone of the team members could be doing this. I do believe in things like ghosts and paranormal activity and recently of investigations when they have heard banging noises they make sure the cameraman is filming everyone's feet to prove they are not making the banging noises themselves.



Having the mediums with the team make this more believable and the mediums don't know where they are going until they get to the location so they are unable to do any research about the location. They are expected to pick things up as they investigate the location which a lot of the time the Mediums are fantastic and they pick up a lot of names.



The more of this programme I watch the more believable I find it and it has become a regular thing for me and my mum to watch it.



I really believe in things like this and I know we all have different opinions on this but because I truly believe in this that's why I have put "Please don't try this at home". I don't think it's a good idea to experiment with things you don't know or don't have experience about! Remember the team have Mediums and they very often use/do protection spells on each and every member of the team!
