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
How to Fix a Broken Wing – Catherine Wheels Theatre Company
We have all watched news reports of horrors happening elsewhere, refugees seeking safety from war-torn homes, victims of natural disasters caused by climate change. What can we do? How should we act? What are our responsibilities to ourselves and to each other? What does it mean to be a global citizen?
How to Fix A Broken Wing will provoke thought and discussion about these questions helping learners to grow more confident in standing up for their beliefs, and more skilled in evaluating the ethics and impact of their day to day decisions. Featuring BAA client, Natali McCleary.
This high-spirited and hopeful new play explores how we might find beauty in imperfection and build resilience in the face of change.

From the comfort of armchairs in the studio, three amateur sleuths, they watch the drama play out as Mortcliff’s crack team of detectives make enquiries with the local residents. But in a show where everyone has a motive, it might prove harder to catch the culprit than you think. The Armchair Detectives are introduced to suspects, uncover vital clues and share their thoughts and theories as the story unfolds, before making their final accusation in a bid to win the golden magnifying glass trophy.
