Not all strange glowing balls are corpse candles or death omens - some are the wandering souls of those with scores to settle.

Can a soul really leave the body to complete a task, and then return to the body afterwards when finished?

In these four eerie accounts from Wales and the border with England, strange lights are said to enter homes, attract the attention of ghostly characters, and even fight other lights under the shadow of darkness.

What does it all mean?

Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he goes in search of the strange "soul lights" on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.
