I never had any much interest in MH, but after hearing about this it disgusts me. I would like to read Derek's autobiography to hear the whole story now. Anyone know where I can get it and whats it called? I have looked up the books that he has written but none of them say if its his autobiography.
I don't know whether Derek Acorah has a yet published autobiography, but I do know that a while after he had left Most Haunted
he did an interview on White Noise
online radio, where he spoke quite candidly of his time spent on MH; including graphic accounts of bullying by 'certain individuals' and other such unsavoury goings on during the making of the TV programme, Most Haunted
. At the time, that interview was posted up on the Spiritlove forum along with other White Noise Radio
interviews, as it had been a regular thread on SL. Some other places (including the Bad Psychics forum )
had also posted a full transcript of the interview. However, a short time after the airing of that interview, the White Noise site went down for a short time - and when it came back up, there was a notice where the interview had been, saying they had been forced to take it down by the legal team connected to the MH programme makers - who had also
... given a warning that they would sue anyone found publishing either the interview or the transcript of the interview.
I subsequently took the post down from the Spiritlove
forum - and left a notice saying that the interview was still available to listen to privately, and that if any of the registered forum members were interested, to let me know by PM and I would send it to them privately by email. This was the case for some time afterward, and during that time a new member registered on the forum, but never posted, simply PM-ing me to ask where they could get the interview. I had no idea who that person might be, and they were not very forthcoming when asked, and so I declined their request.
Some time after, one of the long-term members (known and trusted by me, as I knew that member personally)
requested I email it to them, which I did, sent as an attachment by email. When it arrived at their end,
- the attachment had been wiped clean!
I then went back to the place where I had it kept privately hidden, to try and re-send it to that person - only to find that it had also been wiped from there!
All that was left was a shell inside the interview container.
After that, another anonymous, non-posting new member registered on Spiritlove
, with the same sole PM request asking if I knew where 'the DA interview' could be found.
So ... make of all that what you will.
PS: All that is to be found now on what was the White Noise
online radio, once full of interesting interviews and such - if you look it up now, all you will hear on there is - literally, just a recording of white noise.
PPS: At least I think
that's what the radio site was called ... it's such a long time ago now.
Definitely White [something] Radio
