M.R. James’ short story, "Lost Hearts," aired on Christmas Day in 1973 as a short television film on BBC's A Ghost Story for Christmas. This ghost story tells the tale of an orphan boy, Stephen Elliott, who is sent to live with his cousin, Mr. Abney, at his remote estate in the country. Stephen soon discovers that two other children, who had previously stayed at his cousin’s estate, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Part 2 of this ghostly tale will be published in our feed within the next few days. Please note that this story may depict certain groups of people in outdated, derogatory terms. These views are very much antiquated and incorrect, and we do not condone any such racist attitudes.
