Vampires: what is fact and what is fiction? The legend of the vampire is deeply ingrained in our culture but what are the origins of this monster? And is there any truth to the walking undead? Iszi chats to folklore expert Deborah Hyde about dead bodies, exhumaton and night time visitors….
This is a Z List Dead List Special - the rest of Series 5 should be out in October - dying computers and other work is getting in the way of Iszi’s historical output but she is still working hard to get the next series to you as soon as possible!
