EQUINOX: SECRETS OF THE PSYCHICS
First transmitted 24th August 1997 Channel 4
Are pyschic powers real? Equinox examines the apparent mysteries of psychics past and present.
Uri Geller filed an official complaint to the Broadcasting Standards Commission about this programme, claiming that he had been treated "unjustly and unfairly". The complaint was not upheld. Details are at [url]http://www.openmedia.co.uk/urigeller.htm[/url].
Equinox exposes "Secrets of the Psychics"
A breath of fresh air to skeptics worldwide, the Equinox programme was an exceptional mix of entertaining, educational and skeptical treatment of the history of psychics. Featuring CSICOP fellows Ray Hyman and Susan Blackmore along with many other prominent skeptics, the show covered the history of spiritualism and psychics from the Fox sisters to Uri Geller.
Equinox blended colorful commentary with illuminating dramatizations and explanations of famous mediums and their art of illusion. Equinox also takes the viewer inside the laboratory and shows how easily test subjects may be fooled. This production is likely to become an important future video reference work on the history of spiritualism and psychics.

NOTE: I'm afraid that my present internet connection is not terribly fast (I'm lucky if I see 1500/300kbps, and that's on a good day with a following wind) so I'm sorry for any slow seeding, especially between 4pm and midnight.
This is my first upload here, so any comments and tips will be very welcome.
