Scott, Selina - An interview with Canon Paul Greenwell about his ghost work



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

Selina Scott speaks to Canon Paul Greenwell

Selina Scott was recently involved in buying, at an auction in America, a rare edition of one of the most famous ghost stories in the world, Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'. The book was subsequently returned to its home town of Malton in North Yorkshire which was the inspiration for the novel.

Thus, with ghosts very much on Selina's mind and a suspicion that there is a ghost in her own home, Selina finds out more about the paranormal in this series of One to One.

In the first of her three programmes Selina talks to Canon Paul Greenwell from Ripon Cathedral who carries out 'home blessings' for people who think they have encountered a ghost or spirit.

He joins Selina in her home, a 15th century farm house in North Yorkshire, to try and get to the bottom of the presence in her kitchen.
