Prof Wiseman’s research has been featured on a number of television programs such as Horizon (BBC), Body Shock (Channel 4), 20/20 (ABC), and Dateline (NBC) and he is heard on BBC Radio 4, with regular appearances on Start The Week, Midweek and The Today Programme. Articles about his research have been published in The Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Guardian and his work has even made its way to the front cover of the The New York Magazine. The professor maintains his own web site, a blog and a YouTube channel while further distributing his work via Facebook and Twitter.
I ran across these charming and fascinating videos about some “magic tricks” filmed by the professor. What he does is interesting and educational and when combined with the music, you have a good little piece of entertainment. Enjoy!
