Uri Geller

urigeller_547In 1973, chaos followed Geller’s appearance at the BBC (the first time he had appeared live on a TV show) when hundreds of people phoned in to say that watches had been ‘mended’ and cutlery twisted out of shape during his demonstration on The Dimbleby Talk-in.

During the show, Uri correctly identified the drawing of a boat in a sealed envelope, started a broken watch and snapped a steel fork simply by stroking it.
