    The same Pete Dickinson who once said "I'm not usually prone to having weird things happen to me, or around me" after reporting a "time slip" type story but who has also written about His haunted doll...

    Dybbuk / Dibbuk Boxes: From Scroll Cabinet To Ghost-Hunting Fad

    'Amongst the clutter was a small scrap of paper, which seemed to be written by a rabbi.' do rabbis have a particular, distinctive handwriting that makes their messages easy to identify? is there a source for this, apparently quoted, story? Otherwise it's nonsense. As I said a few posts back...

    Borley Rectory

    I don't think this link has been posted before. I found it a pretty damning, exhaustive, account of the Borley Rectory affair.

    Does Anybody Recall This Weird Ghost Photo On Fortean TV?

    But looking at the map, the 4.5 / 5 miles or so from the stables to Bluebell Hill would, in other directions, take in the whole of Maidstone, Leeds Castle, a couple of dozen historic villages, etc etc. All of which probably are bursting with local hauntings and legends. The problem with any...

    FT 379

    My memory is that it was a short animation shown in a daytime break between programmes, as other PIFs were. I'd have been about 10 at the time. Edit - having had a look on youtube I think it was the "Action after Warnings" segment of Protect and Survive. And it was some years before "Threads"...

    FT 379

    Maybe it wasn't part of the specific suite of Protect and Survive pifs, but I distinctly remember seeing an animation about the effects of fallout (it had electronic music and the fallout was represented by little dots swarming across the screen) as a standalone item on TV some considerable time...

    More Drone Persecution

    Or is it? Something's going on, but what? Man claims home plagued by midnight drone pests Police are appealing for help finding the person flying drones in Brandon in the middle of the night. A man has told police how his home was plagued by drones that hit his windows and interfered with his...

    FT 374

    K-9 in the UK would almost always refer only to Dr Who's 1970s robot dog. 'Canines' would be a bit too 'scientific' for a news report.
