1 9 7 6 – 1 9 7 8 (UK)
19 x 30 minute episodes

Motley Hall, ancestral home of the Uproar family, is a wonderful, old Elizabethan building. To the casual observer, it is unoccupied, but it actually is home to five ghosts, each from a different era in the house’s history.

All is not cosy amongst the ghosts, however, and they are compelled to get along with each other as best as they can – something which becomes increasingly more difficult as they try to keep the twentieth century from their doorstep.

This popular series was created by award-winning writer Richard Carpenter (Catweazle) and stars popular character actors Peter Sallis (Last of the Summer Wine), Freddie Jones and Sheila Steafel.
