eta - They are friends.  Billy Roberts says so in another article in PN:-
Because of my past involvement in various exorcisms, I was approached a few months ago by Its Pretty Green, a public relations and branding agency in London, to see if I would take part in filming promotional material for the new American TV series, The Exorcist, to be broadcast on the SYFY Channel.

It was explained that I would be working alongside my friend, UK parapsychologist Dr Ciaran O’Keeffe, and that we would be filmed talking about our experiences with exorcisms.

Although the majority of exorcisms are nothing at all like those depicted by Hollywood, there have been occasions over my 35 years of working as a professional medium, when I have witnessed some grotesque and very frightening exorcisms.

Cheating on Most Haunted? Cheating? About what one might wonder? That programme is just make-believe for entertainment. Do we say other entertainers on other programmes were "caught cheating"?

Of course you are correct, I should have said he was following direction from Karl Beattie, as to further entertain the audience within an acted part

Still catching up with reading, kk, and pleasantly surprised by a couple of articles.

The one about George Cranley was nice to read again and I enjoyed the piece about Isa Northage whose memory is kept alive at the small Pinewoods Church/Sanctuary very close to where I live.

When I get home this spring I'm going to try to remember to see if I can make a visit. The church/centre is in Newstead Abbey grounds where there's an annual 5 mile run through the woods and the abbey and ruins are Byron's former posh pied-a-terre.

Newstead's not a place to make a special trip to see, in my view, as when we visited last a few years ago the grounds were desperately run down and tatty. In better times the formal garden was glorious and the lake beautiful. Nottinghamshire's not the weathiest of counties, though, and it was likely council funding cuts that led to the sad deterioration of a place that used to be lovely. Crying or Very sad

I remember a fabulous day out at Newstead Abbey with my family when I was a youngster. I can remember having a really special afternoon tea in the beautiful kitchen. And the peacocks, beautiful but noisy beggars roaming around the grounds, and I remember feeding the swans on the lake. Its a long time since I was a toddler and it was many years ago but that day is still very vivid in my memory. Such a shame to think of that beautiful place left neglected and falling to ruin.

Yeah it's a great shame and we were shocked at how tired and neglected the place had become. It's interesting you mention remembering a time when you were young. I, too, recall one there but for totally different reasons.

We were a typical working-class family and Newstead Abbey was a big day out travelling by service bus to the main gate and then walking the probably mile and a half through the grounds to the Abbey picnic and sightseeing area.

It was a hot summer day spoiled at the end by the most amazing thunderstorm and torrential rain as we walked back to catch the bus. Soaked to the skin with the storm playing around us we eventually made it home and the storm continued into the late evening. There were nearby homes hit and damaged by lightning and reports of ball-ligtning smashing their way through some of them.

As a family for decades later we would reflect about that storm, that visit and we'd talk about summers generally that used to be hot, summers when we THOUGHT we had other such storms at Newstead but I wonder if we actually did? Memory can be very fickle and it's easy to be mistaken but maybe there was a run of hot summers in our neck of the woods?

It all seems such a long time ago, around 65 years I'd guess.

Its fascinating the things we remember from our childhood, and the things we forget. Usually there is a trigger of some kind that keeps the thing alive in our memory --- like the memorable bad storm on the day of your family visit to Newstead. You would probably find that if you took part in a memory test and there happened to be a similar bad storm on the day of the test, your memory of that trip would be enhanced and you would remember even more details about your Newstead day trip, things that over the course of time have become buried in your memory.

Fickle??? I dont think so. Complex might be a better description for the memory, and malleable at times depending on circumstances and environment etc.

Our memory is indeed a complex thing. The memories of folk with clear recall - and the ability to corroborate details recalled - impress me most. Without corroboration, of course, there's no way to be sure that apparent memories are actual ones. When I'm relating a distant memory I always say I'm not absolutely sure unless I have an additional way to corroborate the details.

When memory is affected by degenerative disease it can strip away so much of what makes us individuals, often leaving the sufferer lost even in familiar situations and surroundings. Surviving as so many now are into ever older age may not be a joyous thing for them or their families.
