I have been watching this program on Yesterday, not to bad the storys are interesting but for skeptics this show proves nothing as all accounts are eye witness testimony only although they sometimes show real photo's and video on some peoples experiences.

anyone else seen this show?

I've been enjoying the tales on the show. I suspect that the events witnessed didn't quite happen like they are depicted in the show, but it\s still a fun way to spend 45 mins.

I've tuned in...not too impressed as it over damaatises everthing for effect.

seems similar to the US show "My Ghost Story"

Personally I have no problem with hearing other's encounters - just because it hasn't happened to someone else or occurred in a lab (how many haunted labs are there BTW ?) doesn't mean that it didn't happen.

surely the emphasis is not on the witness to prove that they tell the truth but for the Sceptic to prove that they aren't - and not by saying "I can do the same thing as a stage conjuror" - that's smoke and mirrors to avert anyone asking - ok so could the witness also perform that feat - and how long did it take you to learn to do it..

I do think that the burden of proof does actually lay with the person who experienced the phenomena, as annoying as that can be sometimes.

Mind you, I don't know why so many people are dying to 'prove' paranormal stuff to other people other than themselves. To me it is a bit like pissing against the wind.

yeah they are, and I'm sure most of the people on there are telling the truth as they see it too.
