Post by Ian Pegler »

Just got the following from Adrian Incleton Webber...
Just wanted to let you know that I am on TV on Thursday 18th April, BBC2 at 20.00.
Part of the James May's Man Lab series looking for his Fathers lost wedding ring on Sandbanks Beach.
Had a great days filming with James, can't tell you the result but it should be worth watching.
Get in the crisps and the glass of wine and hopefully enjoy the hour.

From the BSD Facebook page:
Couldn't resist changing our cover picture from this press release:

'James May's Hot Rods, Ledbury Dowser subjected to 'Laboratory Scrutiny'

When 'Top Gear' star, James May, presenter of BBC TV's 'Man Lab', wanted to search for something close to his heart, he called on the insight of Ledbury Professional dowser and British Society of Dowsers member, Adrian Incledon-Webber to join in the hunt.

In the 'Man Lab' programme May is helping modern man to regain lost skills. There is a race to find May's father's long lost wedding ring involving much digging, diving, driving and - dowsing! Does he find the ring?. well you'll have to watch the programme Man Lab on BBC2 Thursday April 18th, at 8 pm to find out.

Adrian said an exciting day's filming ensued, as he used his finely tuned dowsing skills to help in the search. Unusually, James May was not in the driving seat, as Adrian dowsed with his rods while James answered questions en route.

Adrian Incledon-Webber said:
'This was a great experience and a great result for dowsing. James May was truly taken with his taste of dowsing and I hope that the programme will encourage others to try their hand. Dowsing is an ancient craft that has been used for centuries throughout the world. It's an intuitive skill we all possess but rarely use. With a little practise and some good teaching, we can develop our ability to search for what lies beneath. Dowsing can be used in health and well-being; in the home and garden; for archaeological searches; earth mysteries, discovering ley lines as well as the traditional water divining.

'James May had a go of course and found that he could get the dowsing rods to respond. Captain Slow in his quirky, questioning, considered style - a natural dowser'.
This now has over 1000 views !!!

I dutifully watched the whole programme :roll: till the bitter end, where they showed what happened, but then was let down!

However, Adrian has posted on Facebook that an important part was left out.
And that is impressive.

I also watched to the bitter end.
We are still in suspended animation and wish to know if that member of the yaught club will reveal the origination of his ring?

Interesting quote:
James May at 48:37 wrote: Supposed explanations of dowsing include anything from the rods channeling the human subconscious to discussions on ley-lines and the non-linearity of time
