Thought I'd share this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaZwKop0bhE

It's one of the better docs on the paranormal I've found. Still has silly sound effects and ridiculous gfx now and again but it's got a serious scientific edge to it.

Yep. One of the best I can remember seeing. I linked to it myself sometime back. Some proper shivers to be had - especially as the people telling the stories seem so down to earth. (Somewhere in there there's a story about Hyde Park Corner station which, for some reason - although I don't think a whole lot happens in it - I found particularly creepy.)

I remember talking to a mate of mine's dad some years back - a proper old-school Londoner who had worked on the Underground for decades. I said that I expected a few tall stories got told about the place - his reply was something along the lines of, 'No, son - you never get so used to the place that it stops being spooky so people tend to avoid telling shityerpants stories just for the sake of it - generally speaking, if someone tells you something happened to them you can more or less bet your life it did.

Watched the London Underground Doc, entertaining and unnerving in equal measure.
I gather from that there are people whose job it is to walk alone through the tunnels at night? I don't care how much they pay - nothing could induce me to do that!

That first story has already sent a chill down my spine... Shocked

If only we had access to the CCTV footage for that one!

I have to say actually there is something about the LU. I worked in London for about 5 years in the early 00s and commuted daily on the system, I worked shifts so was there late and early and when you find yourself walking a deserted tunnel late at night there is something very unsettling about the place.

By contrast I've lived in Paris the last three years and take the Metro system there every day at all hours and I don't find it spooky in the slightest. It's not quite as old and the tunnels nowhere near as deep but it is curious how one subterranean transit system can feel so ominous and oppressive while another does not bring out anything like the same feelings.
