Harry Price: Ghost Hunter, Poets as novelists, Rosie Hood, The Haunting of Hill House

Rafe Spall stars as a conman medium in the supernatural ITV drama Harry Price: Ghost Hunter. Viv Groskop reviews.

The poetry of Muriel Spark, George Orwell and Angela Carter - all important 20th century novelists - have recently been published. Front Row asks their editors what it reveals, and whether the poetry matches up to their prose.

Rosie Hood is a young folk singer who is just coming to the end of a year-long BBC Performing Arts Fellowship. She discusses the fellowship and how she has used it to research songs which were collected in her native Wiltshire a century ago.

Stephen King described Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel, The Haunting of Hill House, as one of the finest horror stories he'd ever come across. Jackson's tale of a troubled young woman's visit to an old and abandoned house has now been adapted for the stage at Liverpool Playhouse. Novelist MJ Hyland reviews.
