We got a bit nervous the other week when Reece Shearsmith did that documentary on Radio Four, but his mate Mark is back to take up his mantle as the media’s go-to guy for all things horrible, here marking Halloween (just about) with this special looking at frights from the continent, much of which appears to be absolutely demented.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Our leaf through the Christmas 1979 Radio Times for this week’s Creamguide reminds us this programme was repeated on BBC1 in omnibus form over the afternoons of 30th December and 1st January that Christmas, and thanks to that we can confirm that the Daily Express said, “It rates with the finest BBC productions”, while The Observer, and presumably one C James, said, “It’s like watching the source material for countless derivative spy stories. You just know this one is the original.” Better watch it, then, though alas this time it’s not followed by EBC1.
