Five famous psychic mysteries which still hold their secret. 4: The Myers Case written and narrated by VINCENT BROME with Classical scholar, lecturer and poet, F. W. H. Myers believed strongly in ' survival after death.' In 1901, after his own death, numerous messages believed to have come from him were received through the automatic writing of several women. The investigation which followed these mysterious ' correspondences ' failed, however, either to verify or disprove them. The Myers case has still to be solved. with the voices of DIANA BISHOP , ELIZABETH MORGAN WILLIAM EEDLE , BONNIE HURREN
