Letter from Journalist Garry Bushell to Michael Roll (August 22, 1991): JAMES RANDI: PSYCHIC INVESTIGATOR

This letter was written after James Randi's PSYCHIC INVESTIGATOR series was broadcast on television in the UK.

In his letter, Garry Bushell writes:
”I don't pretend to know anything about sub-atomic physics, but I am intrigued by your arguments & believe you should be allowed to state your case publicly, even if it is then knocked down.”

On August 8, Garry Bushell had published an article in The Sun.

In this article, he writes:
"None of it was remotely as interesting as the subjects Randi hasn't tackled yet - like crystal ball merchants or tarot card readers. Or more tellingly those scientists who claim there is a rational case for belief in life after death. Why have their arguments been kept off TV? I hear that comments from astro-physicist Sam Nicholls were cut from the show on mediums. Why?”

Letter from Sam Nicholls to David Plowright (March 7, 1991): "OPEN MEDIA" SERIES ON THE PARANORMAL

This letter concerns the Open Media series, produced by Granada Television in the UK.
In the letter, Sam Nicholls writes:
"It is important to realise that magicians like Randi have a lifetimes experience in deceiving people for the sake of "entertainment" - they are experts at pulling the wool over the eyes of their audiences. Unfortunately, experience has shown that these individuals tend to forget that such deception is inappropriate to more scientific endeavours."
