TV: Vampire skeletons

Channel 5 is showing a documentary called Mysteries of the Vampire Skeletons this Tuesday, 13 September, at 8pm.

According to an online description, this looks at deviant burials in Ireland that suggest our ancestors feared undead corpses rising from the grave. It also talks to a modern Romanian who disinterred his neighbour's dead body and cut out his heart to prevent him returning as a vampire.

The TV programme aims to shed light on folklore about vampires and our ongoing fascination with the subject.
