Free-to-view BBC documentary chronicling magician James Randi's debunking of 
faith healers, fortune tellers and psychics, including spoon-bender Uri Geller 
and tent-show evangelist Peter Popoff. Interesting.


Recommended by me.

Especially the Popoff debunking, that was hilarious. Seeing Uri Geller again 
brought back memories of trying to bend spoons myself in the 70's. Seems that 
everyone fell for it. Except Randi...

But the most fascinating bit for me was the vehement response he got from the 
public for his efforts, it turns people don't like being told their sacred cows 
aren't real, they like the make-believe and not hard facts. I thought he was 
doing people a massive favour! 

And parapsychology is stronger for Randi having pointed out their weaknesses, 
we'd probably be sitting here thinking that people actually have magical powers 
if it wasn't for him....
