Summary

A governess is sent to take care of two orphans living in a remote country house, where she is unsettled by the presence of a pair of ghosts who seem to come and go as they please - and soon suspects the youngsters know more about the spectres than they are letting on. Her anxiety builds when she learns that the previous governess, who was very close to the children, died with her lover in mysterious circumstances. Chilling one-off drama, based on Henry James' classic 1898 novella and updated to a Twenties setting. Michelle Dockery, Sue Johnston, Mark Umbers, Josef Lindsay and Eva Sayer star.
