Haunted was an eight-part series produced by ABC that starred Patrick Mower as Michael West, a university philosphy lecturer who travelled the country investigating supernatural and occult phenomena. West would bookend the start and end of the hour long dramas much in the same way as David Buck's character Richard Beckett did on the more renowned Mystery and Imagination.

Shot on black and white videotape the series has not maintained a high profile over the years in part due to higly erratic scheduling from the different licence areas of 1960s ITV, but also because no episodes exist in the archives denying modern audiences an example of the look and style of the series.

A shame really, as on paper the series looked like an interesting entry into horror television sharing many of the cast and crew that made Mystery and Imagination such an enduring programme including that programme's producer Jonathan Alwyn who handled directing chores on two of Haunted's episodes. It also provided an early lead TV role to the then twenty-seven year old actor Patrick Mower who would later establish himself as a rugged lead actor in many 1970s TV series and films.

Producer Michael Chapman had previously undertaken similiar duties on Undermind and Public Eye and would go on to become producer of The Bill.

The 1974 Granada production of the same name is not related to this series and was instead two stand alone dramatisations of stories by Kingsley Amis and Elizabeth Taylor.
