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 sceptic in the form of James Randi, an investigator of the paranormal who has offered $1 million 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.
