Ghosts: Is there life after death?

Season 2, Ep. 8

Ever done a Ouija board? Had a spooky experience that you can't explain? Or perhaps you think the idea of ghosts is ridiculous! Join Laura and Abi as they interview paranormal investigation team Spectrum Paranormal. Dean's a massive sceptic but loves to investigate the paranormal world, and his aunty Hazel's a hardcore convert. Together they're on a mission to document paranormal activity and answer the question "Is there life after death?"

Founded in 1996 Spectrum Paranormal is one of the most experienced and dedicated paranormal investigation companies in the UK. They have been featured on German and French television and in Time Out, Business Insider and many UK newspapers.
