1 Hour Documentary | BBC

Uri Geller, the world-renowned mentalist, paranormal expert and spoon bender, has had a life in front of the cameras, a life surrounded by controversy, a life dotted with amazing psychic demonstrations. But most people didn’t know that, away from the bent cutlery and broken watches, he had been leading a second, covert, life as a ‘psychic spy’, working secretly, and without recognition for nearly thirty years. This ‘secret life’ has included work for the military and intelligence agencies on three continents – indeed, the scientists who first did rigorous research on Geller more than forty years ago (and concluded that he has a phenomenal gift) were funded by the CIA!

Now, for the first time, this incredible story is told in a new television documentary, with unique and compelling interviews from Uri himself as well as those who knew and worked closely with him.
