Most Haunted

Hosted by Yvette Fielding, the Most Haunted was shown from 2002-2010,  but has recently been revived online. This programme investigates paranormal activity in haunted locations using psychic mediums and scientific equipment. One episode took place in Leicester’s Guild Hall, which was once a court house, police headquarters and school. When they visited the Guild Hall, loud, inexplicable footsteps were caught on camera and the crew became ill while in a cell!

Interestingly, Ofcom had to release a statement saying that the show was an entertainment show, not a legitimate investigation into paranormal activity, and should not be taken seriously.
