Long Night At Blackstone – BBC Scotland/Hopscotch Films

Long Night at Blackstone is Greg Hemphill’s second outing as a director, and is the follow-up to his hilarious and terrifying West Skerra Light. Faye Bowers is the host of a low-rent paranormal activity show, a master of trickery and pretence, but she is desperate to be taken seriously as a journalist. When she learns that the show is to be axed, she is determined to go out with a bang. The venue for the final show is the mysterious Blackstone Manor, a huge dilapidated pile inhabited by the Laird of Blackstone and full of stories of past horrors. Though the filming day starts normally enough, it soon becomes apparent that all is not right, and for the very first time in the show’s history, the ghosts may in fact be real and very dangerous. Battling backstabbing colleagues as well as the terrors in the house, Faye finds herself making a show that could catapult her career into the big league – if she can survive the night.

Airs Monday 2nd April 2018. BBC1 – 9pm. Available on BBC IPlayer
