A film crew from the Italian TV station RAI visited Bob at his home in Cyprus. They were interviewing Bob for a documentary programme called 'Voyager', a prime-
"We met Mr Cracknell last June for an interview about his life and his psychic powers. After the interview we had dinner together and we were talking about many topics, when Mr Cracknell told me that Amanda Knox would have been cleared of murder. In June nobody knew about the new examination that would have questioned the scientific police's job, so I thought that Mr Cracknell was wrong. On the 3rd of November, 4 months later, I was in the post-
Marco Zamparelli – Author & TV Producer
Whilst promoting his autobiography: ‘Clues to the Unknown’, Bob Cracknell appeared on virtually every B.B.C. local radio station throughout the U.K. He was to finish the tour by featuring on one of the most prestigious radio programmes on radio four, ‘Midweek’. It was the radio station’s highest rated programme at that time, and its popularity continues. It was broadcast not only nationwide but also in many other countries.

with a ‘mystery guest’ who was not part of the showbiz circuit, and the programme was hosted by the popular television personality and broadcaster, Russell Harty (now sadly deceased). On this particular occasion however, Russell Harty was ill and his place was taken by another presenter, Terence Brady. Other guests included Humphrey Lyttleton, Lynsey DePaul and Henry Kelly.
A couple of days before the live broadcast was due to go out on air the director telephoned Cracknell and asked him if he was prepared to put himself on the line by accepting a challenge of his abilities under controlled test conditions; a challenge he accepted without hesitation. (This experiment was not dissimilar to that he undertook at Oxford, when he predicted who would later be occupying a certain chair and put down in writing the feelings he picked up about that person; comments which produced much acclaim and a rating of 80% accuracy.)
Without any prior knowledge as to the other guests who would be there that day (the celebrities participating were never advertised in advance) he was to give his impressions about one of the people who would be on the programme with him. This he did. His words were recorded and later transcribed, to be ‘locked’ inside a sealed envelope until the day of the live broadcast. Cracknell specified that the guest would be a woman; that she was very much preoccupied by her hair; had received an injury during her childhood which badly affected her leg and, more significantly, that she had recently experienced a traumatic separation or divorce, which was causing her a great deal of distress.
Cracknell had been seated next to Lynsey de Paul, who – when she heard his impressions – gasped in amazement at the accuracy of the words. It was a well-
This remarkable aspect of Cracknell’s abilities; that of being able to forecast future events days and weeks before they happened, was to be repeated on many occasions; the Southern Organs, Janie Shepherd, Gaby Mearth and Yorkshire Ripper cases being but a small number of his achievements which can be found on this website.
