Re: [skeptical] Fw: ON TONIGHT! - Critical Eye
- The Discovery Science Channel is a digital channel. Most of us with the "Big Ugly Dish" do not receive digital channels. The program, therefore has a limited potential audience. I feel deprived :-(Cheers,Quill----- Original Message -----From: ericSent: Tuesday, October 29, 2002 7:23 PMSubject: [skeptical] Fw: ON TONIGHT! - Critical EyePeople,The bad market conditions has gotten charitable contributions way down. It would probably be a helpful time to send something to Randi or CSICOP about now. The following is a neat show on regularly:----- Original Message -----From: Barry KarrSent: Monday, October 28, 2002 3:59 PMSubject: ON TONIGHT! - Critical EyeDear CSICOP List Reader:
I want to draw your attention to a new show to premiere soon on the Discovery Science Channel. The show is called "Critical Eye" and it was produced in cooperation with CSICOP and the Skeptical Inquirer magazine. Many of you have already seen the 3-4 minutes shorts currently being run on Discovery Science, which are titled "Skeptical Inquirer." The new show is modeled upon these shorts, but will be an hour long and examine several topics within each episode. CSICOP did not have final script approval, but we did contribute a great deal of time to them, as well as most of the skeptical guests presented. We have high hopes for the final product, which is still being worked upon. It think it pretty safe to say that the skeptical point of view will be very well represented. William B. Davis (The X-Files-smoking man), will be the series host. He is a longtime reader and supporter of the Skeptical Inquirer and had been instrumental in keeping the show true to its mission. I hope you can mark the airdates on your schedule, and then let us know your thoughts.
This series hosted by William B. Davis (The X-Files-smoking man), looks into the science behind the paranormal, new age philosophies, and the unexplained.The series will investigate 34 topics including, subliminal messaging, alien abduction, acupuncture, ghosts, astrology, exorcism, Stonehenge, near-death experiences, and the lost city of Atlantis. Each topic will be addressed by leading experts and scientists. These subjects will be brought to life through lively debate and extraordinary visuals in order to shed light on its scientific relevance. Critical Eye will premiere on Monday Oct 28 at 8pm/ET. A second hour of the series will also air on 10/28 at 9pm. SCHEDULE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE
