Famously haunted by Catherine Howard, Jane Seymour and the Grey Lady. But in 2003 they caught something on CCTV by an open fire door, does know if this has been explained away yet?

I personally believe it to be a practical joke by an employee wearing a bathrobe or a period costume.
Unless you believe that ghosts are capable to interfere with electrical equipment the fire alarm should have be activated by opening the door and the alarm would surely have memory of that. Every night watchman would doublecheck that.
But I do know that longtime museum and university employees have the "magical" power to shut down whatever firealarm they want to go outside and have a break and a smoke without drawing too much attention... Wink

Plus the fact that night watchmen have been known to forget to check even once that which they ought to double-check...

I've always thought that particular spook looks like someone dressed up as Queen Elizabeth I.

If it had been a bricked up door, then there might have been some explaining to do, but a fire door from the sixteenth century ? Come on who's fooling who here. affraid

I don't know why but I just can't seem to find a CCTV ghost that convinces me Rolling Eyes .

Something to do with CCTV operators' habit of continually reusing tapes, perhaps? I wonder how many CCTV recordings now go digitally to disk, which should avoid problems of bleed-through?

It's (thankfully) becoming increasingly common in my experience, altough some systems don't actually keep a copy on the hard disk after a certain date, meaning you often have to deal with cd-r copies and only the word of the establishment that it hasn't been tampered with.

This image was somewhat interesting, and, while some people here seem to doubt it, I've seen supernatural occurances cause failures in electronic alarm systems. However... given the uncontrolled enviroment and the possibility of trickery... this one is not good evidence.
