08.08.2006 Paranormal Investigations - Since the dawn of time people wonder if there is life after death and stories of haunted places and messages from "the other side" are common place. On this show "In-Depth" talks to Mark and Gavin, two people who are and were involved in paranormal investigations. The show tries to dispell some myths as well as coming up with some surprising stories which even make the critics go awe and wonder. The show will also feature interviews with Carol Sterling, one of Scotlands top clairvoyant mediums, and Stewart Keeys, a medium who is well known from his appearances on "Most haunted" and other media outlets. Feel free to browse through their pages: www.carolstirling.co.uk and www.pureconnections.co.uk - NEAR FM is actually mentioned in the "Stewart in the media" section.*

The show features interviews with OneTwo/OMD - musician Paul Humphreys, the legendary Sparks and an interview with Zakk Wylde, who has been inducted at the Rock Musicians hall of fame and named a very influential guitarist.
