A research and development group in an electronics company set-up camp in an old Victorian mansion to find a new recording/playback medium (probably CD - this was '72). When one team member, Jill Greeley (played by Jane Asher) sees an apparition on some old stairs, the team leader, Peter Brock, decides to analyze the 'ghost'. His conclusion meshes with is work and he feels it may be a psychic impression trapped in an ancient stone wall (hence a "stone tape").
Quite a pleasing TV occult tale, although highly over-acted at times. out of

• Commentary By Nigel Kneale And Kim Newman
This is quite an old BFI DVD and far below their current high standard. Still, using TV sourced video one cannot expect too much. Colors are a little washed out, but acceptable for tube viewing. It, surprisingly, has a commentary! Overall a worthy effort by BFI, but lags behind their amazing new DVD transfers. out of
