    This is very funny, as Fanny finds a bottle, opens it and releases a genie.
    Also a girl Elle, arrives at Motley with two aunts after their car breaks down.
    Elle can see all the ghosts and there is fun as she interacts with them much to the bewilderment of the aunts who think she's going mad.
    The Genie wonderfully played by Alfred Marks has taken over Motley, turned Sir George mute and generally makes the ghosts lives(?) a misery.
    Elle and the ghosts devise a plan to beat him. The aunts are of the wicked variety and have stolen an air ticket sent by Elle's father to Elle inviting her to live with him in Saudi Arabia where he works. The aunts cruelly want to keep Elle with them as a dogsbody.
    10/10
