Ghosts & Hauntings

'Ghost' shows up in background of new Amazon Prime show

A ghostly figure can be seen emerging from a mass grave during a segment on James May's new travel show.
Eagle-eyed viewers who had settled down to watch the new Amazon Prime show 'James May: Our Man in Italy' this week got more than they bargained for when they spotted a mysterious figure in the background while May was speaking to the camera at the site of a mass grave.

The ghostly extra, which resembles a translucent white entity, seems to materialize out of thin air, walk towards the right and then vanish again without a trace.

A clip of the sighting soon went viral and was picked up by numerous news outlets.

Even James May himself got in on the debate.
"My thanks to everyone who has pointed out the 'ghost' in ep3 of my new Italy series," he wrote.

"Nobody saw it at the time, so it's either a real ghost or (more likely but also more boring) just a bit of digital file corruption."


Sadly it turned out that the ghostly figure had been added into the shot during editing - in fact it appeared in more than one episode! On the plus side, it certainly served the purpose of drumming up publicity for the show.

It's the whole ep unfortunately.  It's in 3 episodes so he does a wee bit on all 3.

Now how are you going to say it's not one when they wasn't even looking for the paranormal??

So when a camera film artifact pops up when a person isnt ghost hunting it must be a ghost, um okay.

I'm going to bet that when the Rings of Power starts the ghost of Tolkien will be rolling in its grave.

Since supposedly this was the site of a mass grave, I'd like to know more about the history of the place. It may very well be a ghost.They don't all show up at  night. They even show up in daytime. it certainly is human shaped. My dad was a disabled vet of three wars, WW2, Korea and Veit Nam, so it makes you wonder what weird  things he and other vets on both side  might have seen  they never told anyone about, which they couldn't explain.
