Great British Ghosts: Michaela Strachan interview
I was asked out of the blue to do the series. It's definitely something very different for me and away from my normal genre of wildlife presenting, but it really appealed. I have an open mind when it comes to the paranormal but am fascinated by it. I also love the history of all these old places, it makes you realise what a rich and varied past Britain has had. Sometimes it's personal histories that are so interesting, finding out the past of a some old mansions can be a bit like reading an old Hello! magazine! Mind you, often a bit more gruesome, there may be glamour, wealth and romance but there is often murder, sickness and deceit.
