Ghost programs and the metaphysical issue: Part 21 - 'Alaska Haunting'
The Learning Channel's (DirecTV channel 280) Friday evening lineup includes 'Paranormal Lockdown' and 'Alaska Haunting: Dead of Winter', both of which are apparently starting their second season. I think both programs are from the Destination America network, which I don't get, and ether moved or were farmed out to TLC. Discovery Communications owns quite a few cable networks, and it can be a bit confusing. While 'Paranormal Lockdown' is produced in the common investigative style, 'Alaska Haunting' is produced in documentary style. 'Dead of Winter' is apparently the season two sub-title. The program is a lot like 'A Haunting', and with the same excellent narrator Anthony D. Call.
1-1-17 ADDITION: I wanted to add this item as it's something to really ponder within the whole idea of paranormal investigation. Episode 13 ('The Night Ward'; see below) of this past season of Syfy's 'Paranormal Witness' (Season 5) featured the only case which I know of where a paranormal investigator was actually seriously injured during an investigation... and very likely by an evil entity at the location. The person's internal organs were "crushed," although they did survive.
On the same consequential note, on one episode of one of the programs featuring medium Kim Russo on Lifetime Movie Network; a mere visitor at the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California experienced a ghost following him home. This "evidence" is not nearly as convincing at the case above, but it's also something to ponder. Perhaps it's best to avoid locations where there has been reports of paranormal activity.
