Swings

Duration:
15 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 18 August 2011

"Yes, the ghosts you see at night, they're the souls - the auras, if you like - of good people who didn't deserve to die. That's why they're full of regret, and frightening. Ghosts we see in broad daylight are the ones whose death were right and fair - they've been redeemed by death. They were evil while alive..."

In this series of commissioned stories the aim is to present ghosts or ghostly happenings in the cold light of day. Will something 'unexplained' be as as scary in a light that is... well, reliable to the eye!

3. Swings by Adam Thorpe.
Howard is alone when he visits the deserted playground.
Then something starts to make a squeaking noise...
