Description

In this programme, Michael Rosen delves into the world of horror and supernatural fiction live from the basement of a haunted cinema in Birmingham.

Celia Rees, a former teacher, reveals how she was inspired to write Witch Child, a spooky historical novel set in the time of the witch hunts of the seventeenth century. A Year 10 class explore the issues within Witch Child using drama and debate.

Meanwhile, Michael Rosen's Rant examines the enduring appeal of horror stories whilst our panel read Stephen King's Carrie - is it a cult classic or mildly pornographic?

Our panel features educational writer John Richmond, librarian Darren Hart and teacher adviser Winsome Thomas.
