Biography Channel’s – My Ghost Story
Tony and I were contacted in early 2008 and asked if we would consider participating in My Ghost Story; Bio Channel edition. We were flown out to Los Angeles California for this interview. We had driven in California before and it was unbelievable that it took us all of about 3 hrs to get from the airport to our hotel which was only about 35 miles away. How do people live like this?
We were set up in a nice small hotel close to the studio we would be filming the interview at for convenience. To take advantage of being in LA we scheduled a car rental to at least go see the Hollywood sign and take in a few sites while we were there.
We flew in Thursday and interviews were scheduled for Friday morning. We had no idea that we would be filming all day. The process is so much longer than one would think, especially since there are only 42 minutes in any TV episode. The My Ghost Story; Bio Channel series always showcased 2-3 stories on each episode, which meant that All that raw interview footage is whittled down to about 21 minutes.
What is pensive?
During the interview process you are asked questions and then several variations on that question multiple times. Repositioning the camera to do it all over again is common as well. We both laughed in hindsight though, because at the end of each of our interviews, we were asked to look pensive. What the hell does pensive mean? We quickly learned, it means lost in thought.
Although the interview went well and we enjoyed the day with the crew, it went longer than
anticipated and we didn’t make it to pick up our rental car. We ended up spending the rest of the day and the next in the hotel.
We kept in touch with the crew so we know when the My Ghost Story; Bio Channel’s episode was going to be scheduled. Originally it was scheduled for April of 2008, but it didn’t air on the Biography channel until July 8th, 2008.
We were again excited about how this interview was going to turn out, because we were told from the start that they did not re-enact anything for their show. It was simply based on whatever evidence we had on our experience.
Our episode was shared with one other story and the basis of the show. The program showcased detailed firsthand accounts of people who have had paranormal or haunting experiences. Stories and people from all walks of life and from all over the states we canvassed for the best stories. Usually there were two stories showed per episodes.
The Pickman’s portion of the show revealed details and theories from Tony and Debra on the experiences they had in the house and of which had never before been presented on television. It was definitely a thought provoking episode.
If you missed the My Ghost Story; bio channel show, be sure to watch the listings in your area for reruns, and set your TIVO or DVR to record it.
