38. Beyond the Grave
“Ladies and gentlemen, we apologise again for the difficulties we’ve been having. If you’ll excuse the expression, it seems we have a ghost in the machine...”
40 years ago, the paranormal television show Beyond the Grave broadcast a very special Halloween episode - live from Collinsport, Maine. Presenters Tom Lacey and Kate Ripperton introduced the nation to the legend of 'Mad Jack', the local fisherman who had reportedly haunted the town's cemetery for over six decades.
The terrifying events that followed have become infamous. Suppressed and denied by the authorities, the episode was thought lost forever... until now.
Now, for the first time in forty years, you can hear the true horror of that fateful night in Collinsport...
