Are you a fan of the Most Haunted Live shows? If so, you're one of the thousands who tune into these popular shows when they're on television. Although the style of the show has changed over the past several seasons, one thing has remained the same - great spine-tingling stories with the familiar host of the show, Yvette Fielding.
Most Haunted Live Gettysburg
On October 10, 2008 the show traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to record paranormal activity, including electronic voice phenomena and ghosts on film. While the video was somewhat fuzzy at times (since the videos were shot at night), they did seem to capture some interesting voice and noise phenomena. This particular show was on the air for seven hours straight.
One notable point in the show was when the crew visited the haunted barn. They heard knocking noises while they were walking through the building from the top floor to the basement. A psychic traveling with Yvette believed that there were people who were "underneath them". As it turned out, the basement of the barn had been used to store dead bodies before they were buried.
Another notable point was when Yvette's husband, show producer Karl Beattie, blindfolded her and led her to an undisclosed location in the woods. He then took the blindfold off, handed her a web camera and promptly left her alone there. She was obviously unsettled and kept hearing strange noises nearby, especially when she asked any ghosts present to "come to the camera". Footsteps could be heard crunching in the leaves, but her husband and the crew were far enough away that they couldn't have made the noise. Yvette finally decided that she'd had enough, and started following the camera power cord back to where her husband and crew were waiting.
While it is unknown what was making the noises (perhaps deer, raccoons or skunks?), one thing is clear, the live show attracts many viewers, if only to see Yvette get scared.
A unique feature of the live shows is the ability for viewers to participate by sending their comments to the crew. Viewers may send in warnings, ask questions about what they are seeing on the live broadcast and provide information on the haunted sites. Oftentimes, viewers see or hear things that aren't readily noticed by the crew recording them. The comments are then shown to other viewers, streaming across the bottom of the television screen.
