When I record video conversations with members of the P.A. for the New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube, I also post here. Many other interviews, relevant to parapsychology, with non-members can be viewed at

Parapsychology in the United Kingdom

Chris Roe is currently the president of the Society for Psychical Research, founded in the United Kingdom in 1882. He is professor of psychology at the University of Northhampton where he supervises doctoral students working on parapsychological dissertations. He is also a former president of the Parapsychological Association.

Here he describes the work of Robert Morris, the first person to hold the Koestler Chair of Parapsychology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, starting in 1985. As a result there are now hundreds of individuals who have conducted doctoral level research in parapsychology in the UK. He shares his own experiences as a student at Edinburgh. He also discusses the many problems that parapsychologists still face. He expects parapsychology to grow at a slow and steady pace in the UK.
