Hallowed Histories is delighted to have Tony Buckingham from the East Anglian UFO Group back to guide us through the alien hierarchy.

Episode Six - Mr Vampyre

In this episode we look into one of the most famous parties of all time, as we go to the Villa Diodati to see Lord Byron, Mary Shelley and Dr John Polidori.

We look at the troubled life and career of the angry young man, and investigate the role a thriving intellectual scene in Norwich became a safe haven for him.
