(30) The Geller Effect

On May 26th 1988, I chose a book to read whilst eating my dinner at my parents’ home.
I picked up a biography of Uri Geller: The Geller Effect by Uri Geller and Guy Lyon Playfair.

As I sat down to eat, with the book in one hand, the BBC TV local news programme Look East broadcast an item about an auction to raise money for a children’s hospital.

The actor Ross Davidson, known principally at the time through his appearances in the TV soap opera Eastenders, was holding up an item donated by a celebrity for auction.
This one had been donated by Uri Geller and was a copy of the book The Geller Effect with a pair of (presumably) bent keys dangling from it.

It was only in view for five seconds or so.

In 1985, Davidson and I acted in the same film.
