When corpse candles and deathlike fingers materialise during a séance in Swansea, is it the work of spirits of the dead, or is something else going on?

In this real-life account of a 19th century séance, a group of friends visit a spirit medium for what they believe will be a little light entertainment.

But the paranormal activity spirals out of control, and soon they find themselves trapped in a waking nightmare.

With tables (and heads) being banged, lights in the air, music being played and people screaming and fainting, what was really going on in the darkened room seemingly fizzling with psychic activity?

Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he recreates this first-hand account of a séance gone wrong on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.

Is there anybody there?
