Supernatural Investigator on SETI

Now that I'm back from Turkey, I've had a chance to watch this week's (3 February 2009) episode of Supernatural Investigator, which I host for Canada's Vision TV. This was episode 2 of 17, and it was entitled "Life From Other Worlds," with Mac Tonnies as our investigator of the week.

Man, it felt like a family reunion. There was my buddy Seth Shostak from the SETI Institute (Seth and I have appeared together before on Discovery Channel Canada's Daily Planet, I've been a guest on Seth's SETI radio show (talking about my novel Rollback), and Seth invited me to the NASA/Ames conference "The Future of Intelligence in the Cosmos in 2007).

And there was my friend Chris Corbally, one of the Vatican astonomers; back in 2003, I was in the hot seat on another Vision TV series, Valerie Pringle's Test of Faith; the topic was "Could Organized Religion Survive the Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life," and Chris was one of the questioners -- a great guy, who, as it happens, did his Ph.D. at the University of Toronto.

All in all, I thought it was a terrific episode, and I'm very proud to be part of this series.

I wish I could see it. Naturally my apartment cable setup doesn't carry Vision. Will it be shown on other channels?

Vision, of course, will try to market re-runs of the series to other markets in Canada, and all over the world. We'll see what happens. :)

I still haven't seen it! :-( I'm waiting for the producer to send me a DVD.
