“Sightings” Television Investigates The Sallie House

Sightings, the television series, first contacted the Pickmans late in the
summer of 1993 after seeing a California lecture at one of the universities on the paranormal. Their interest sparked communication with the Pickman via a third party because anonymity was wanted by the family.

The family insisted on their photographs being professionally
analyzed to rule out foul play, prior to their consent to meet with the staff of the show. Seven photos and negatives were sent to be analyzed for any trickery. None was found.

The footage from the on-site filming at the house was so compelling and so many o the crew had distinct unexplainable experiences of their own, that it prompted the host of the television show, Tim White, to come with the crew for the second visit to the house.

Their coverage of the events included not only what had been reported and experienced by the Pickmans, but also the experiences of their own television crew.
