Keep Them Guessing ’ [excerpt]
by Jesse Cox for ABC RN’s 360Documentaries (2013)
As a young boy, producer Jesse Cox discovered a set of old cassette tapes which turned out to be a hugely popular BBC radio show featuring his grandparents performing telepathically. The tapes had been sitting in the front room of his parent's home for years - recordings of an unsolved mystery that has captivated and kept his family guessing for three generations.

The Real Tom Banks

Tom Banks is 23, gay and searching for love. He grew up relatively isolated on a farm just outside of Geelong in Victoria, Australia, and as a teenager turned to internet chat rooms to meet others. Over the years, Tom has become somewhat of an expert when it comes to meeting guys online. And he's learned that when you're online, you can be whoever you want to be. So who is the real Tom Banks?
