Ghost Chasers

INSIGHT television / BriteSpark Films - 2016-17

Ghost Chasers is the exciting new paranormal TV series, produced by BriteSpark Films for the Ultra HD factual entertainment channel INSIGHT. The show is hosted by Kay Nambiar, psychic medium Ian Lawman, and paranormal investigators Chris Howley and Paul Hobday.
In each episode the team investigates one supposedly haunted town and zero in on two key locations. From a Victorian school to an abandoned hotel; from a historic theatre to a spooky forest; from underground Napoleonic war tunnels to a magnificent 1,000 year old castle. As a team we learn about the area’s history and hear stories of previous paranormal encounters. Then as the sun goes down the hunt for paranormal activity begins... 

Host - Kay Nambiar

Kay Nambiar is a Dutch television presenter (MTV, INSIGHT), musician, reality TV star and model. Kay doesn't believe in ghosts, but he's always wondered what lies behind the stories. So he's on a journey, in search of definitive proof of whether or not ghosts really exist.


Psychic Medium - Ian Lawman







Ian Lawman is a world-renowned psychic medium, known for his work on shows such as Haunting: Australia, Living with the Dead, Most Haunted, Fit & Fearless and I'm Famous & Frightened. Ian uses his sixth sense to hone in on the spiritual activity at each location, guiding the team to where he believes we are most likely to experience something paranormal, and maybe even capture evidence of it.

Paranormal Investigators - Paul Hobday & Chris Howley

The paranormal investigators on the show are myself and my good friend and fellow investigator Paul Hobday. Paul and I have been investigating the paranormal together for many years as part of Team IMPACT and as the resident paranormal investigators at Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire, England. Prior to Ghost Chasers, I appeared on various paranormal TV shows including Ghost Hunters International and Great British Ghosts, and Paul was on Living TV's Paranormal Investigation: Live. We are the open-minded skeptics of the Ghost Chasers team, providing rational explanations for what might be going on, whilst trying to capture solid evidence of the paranormal activity reported at each location.

The Format

Ghost Chasers is a 10-episode series filmed in 2016 at locations across the UK and Europe. During the series we take Kay on a journey of discovery, starting with his first ever ghost hunt at the Ragged School in London. Over the 10 episodes and 20 locations, the aim is to provide Kay with experiences and evidence to help him decide whether or not ghosts really exist.


So what makes Ghost Chasers different to other paranormal TV shows out there?


  1. Ghost Chasers is the first ghost hunting television series to be filmed entirely in Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K (at 50 frames per second!), allowing viewers to witness the investigations in far greater detail than ever before. This gives the show a completely different look to other paranormal TV shows and a cinematic quality to the imagery.

  2. There is no green nightvision!! ("Finally!" I hear you all say). The series was filmed under the same lighting conditions that witnesses report seeing ghosts - natural light, torchlight, candlelight, or with the lights on. 

  3. The team provides a balanced approach to investigating the paranormal, with a healthy mix of open-minded believers and skceptics on the team, debating what the phenomena might be and whether it is spiritual or not. In addition there are facts and further potential natural explanations that pop up on screen during each episode.

  4. Many of the locations we visited had never been investigated before by anyone, despite their reports of paranormal activity. For us this was very exciting and we hope it is for the viewers too!
