This Sinister Series is the aforementioned BBC series entitled Spine Chillers.
Thanks to the multitude of fellow astronauts who contributed to assembling missing pieces to both series - Astronauts Doug, Walt, Chase, Shaun, Stephen, Tommy, Martian Agent Martian and the Elder God known only as From Whence It Came.
Here's additional info on these shows originally published at http://www.old-time.com/:
SPINE CHILLERS was a 5-part series of horror shows that aired over
the British Broadcasting Corporation's BBC-4. The shows were heard
Wednesday afternoon and were broadcast in stereo. All shows were
approximately 45 minutes long. The stories take place in the
present and are very much modern shows.
It struck me odd that these shows originally aired in the afternoon.
They're much more suited for listening in a darkened room with a
fire burning low in the fireplace. A fun listen.
