"Now You Know!" JREF CD-ROM

I bought a JREF CD-ROM entitled "Now You Know!" featuring a variety of clips, mostly featuring Uri Geller, off an Australian seller on ebay recently.

One of the the descriptions for a clip of Geller on Italian television read:

"RAI-TV is the major television outlet in Italy. In this excerpt, we see Geller being interviewed and of course some demos. I refer you to both /jr/061104the.html#8 for an account of one item shown here, and /jr/070904that.html#12 for the other."

Owing to my lack of posts, I am unable to give randi org as the prefix to the above webpages. Those pages no longer exist; can anyone remember what they contained? The demonstration included changing the time of the presenter's watch and bending a key.

There are probably new, working links to those pages but instead of finding those I used the Internet Archive - Wayback Machine to retrieve those pages.

You may have to scroll down each page to get to your appropriate section (the #8 and the #12 at the end of your links).

I provide the oldest and newest copy of each link just in case the JREF changed anything on those pages over the years.


Here are the oldest and newest copies of your first link:

Here are the oldest and newest copies of your second link:

Thank you, and thank you!

The relevant sections were: "WHERE'S THAT DAMN CAMERA" and "FOR YOUR ANALYSIS".

It certainly helps put the clip in context - and confirmed my suspicion that Geller did pull out the watch's stalk prior to holding it for the close up - which seemed very visible.
