A mini episode on some of the ghosts, myths and legends of the beautiful and mysterious Dartmoor National Park, and the battle facing the park today.
Originally intended to be a short news article for the paranormal radar, this story, about the folklore of Dartmoor gaining relevance and meaning in these turbulent modern times, ended up turning into something bigger and demanded to be given its own episode, and who are we to deny the ancient land spirits?!
