The Daily Mail magazine of 9th August had a three page feature on Vic Reeves' participation in the TV programme 'Most Haunted', to be televised on the 23rd.

A Mail journalist accompanied Vic and his wife to Belgrave Hall, Leicestershire, where they spent the night accompanied by a TV crew and the presenters. The article began with several paragraphs about Vic's private life (typical Mail) but goes on to recount a nightmarish series of events occurring during the vigil.

Vic, it seems, is fascinated with the paranormal, has had several unusual experiences and is 'Here as Jim Moir' (his real name), not as 'Vic'. In scenes to rival any gothic horror, presenter Derek Acorah suffers some kind of fit and stops breathing. Vic, having gone to his aid and touched him, suddenly rushes off 'like a man possessed', ranting and cursing at some invisible entity. It takes considerable time for some semblance of order to be restored. There's never a man with a stick when you want one!

Since I never get to see these programmes, and with tabloid journalists rarely letting the truth get in the way of a good tale, I ask: is Derek Acorah 'Britains most respected paranormal investigator' on the level?

This psychic night is pretty bad...

The first hour was all about new age religion, which just...it was terrible.
Things like having important new age religious figures say (and I quote) "all that science has taught us is wrong. I wouldnt be surprised if tomorrow they came out and said 'everything we have told you so far is a lie'"

The second hour was a jaded report on psychics...whether they exist or not (they had a couple of unannounced hot and cold readings before talking to a psychic who just went mad at how the report so far had showed psychics to bea healer (perhaps because she didnt get the concept of a debate format...

The third hour (which is on now) is "the top 10 ways to contact the dead" a cheesy and tacky look into clairevoyance and such. Theyve presented the method then had a scientist disprove whatever they suggested.
For Zombies and such he's questionned why no one has ever even seen one.
Ouija boards he's said how people are subconciously moving the stone, whatever without knowing it.
Electronic interferences he's saying how humans try to make sense of the ambiguous...hearing things in white noise etc.

Overall...this was a wasted night....

Celticwitch - thank you for the generous offer. I will shortly be away for a week or so, so I'll maybe take you up on it a bit later. It sounds like I've been missing out on something good. I hope everyone made it out of that place in one piece!

Bearing in mind what Andy Thorley said re the 'psychic night', I checked through much of the recording I made of it and agree, it was pretty awful. Thanks again.  grin2.gif
