    Does this ring a bell with anyone?
    I think that I maybe saw this in the late 70's or mid 80's on perhaps the BBC. It was an hour long ghost story.
    I remember two guys travelling in the countryside in a vintage car. Can't remember why, but they ended up
    stopping at night at a large country house or mansion where there was a group of smartly dressed people in
    20s/30s clothes. I remember at some point they were at another house but returned to the country house to
    find that the whole country estate was derelict, the house was just a ruin and that all the people had perished
    in a fire at the house back in the 20s/30s. Not much to go on, I know.

    Sounds a bit like the Journey to the Unknown episode Poor Butterfly:

    I think Euryale is right. I have this on DVD and Poor Butterfly is exactly as you remembered.

    Agutterfan,
    I cannot see the DVD of the series listed on Amazon or elsewhere, Did you record the series off air?
