I haven't yet watched this documentary, but I thought it might be of interest to my fellow Skeptics, so I'm offering it up...

Extraordinary People: The Million Dollar Mind Reader

Derek Ogilvie says he can read the minds of infants who are too young to communicate verbally.

Now he agrees to undergo a series of controlled experiments to test the limits of his alleged abilities.

He even faces the ultimate skeptic in the form of James Randi, an investigator of the paranormal who has offered $1million to anyone who can provide evidence of the supernatural.

Apparently. “I get little movies played to me, I really do, I’m not a liar, I really, really do,” pants the Scotsman, spherical head bobbing like a drowning apple as footage shows the “professional psychic” doing frantic jazz hands while an expressionless toddler batters his thighs with something plastic.

Here, Ogilvie subjects himself to James Randi’s “one million dollar psychic challenge”, which promises to separate the actually psychic wheat from the transparently cobblers chaff. Unmissable.

I was hoping for a Dover-style repudiation of chiropractic to come out of the case, but alas no courtroom showdown. However, I heard Simon Singh tell Rebecca Watson the other day that 1 in 4 chiropractors in Britain are now under an investigation of some sort ... presumably fraud, but he didn't specify ... as a result of publicity over the court case.
