Derren Brown: The Experiment
Psychological illusionist Derren Brown explores the darker side of the human psyche in ‘Derren Brown: The Experiments'. Shrouded in secrecy, each episode takes the form of a giant social experiment exploring a range of fascinating psychological questions such as: Do we all have the capacity for evil or does being part of a group affect our sense of right and wrong? Is it possible to use hypnotise to convince someone to commit murder? What makes some people lucky and others misfortunate? Some of the experiments have been inspired by classic psychology tests, whilst others have been concocted by Derren himself to illustrate how easily our behaviour can be manipulated. Featuring his unique combination of ingenious and mind-blowing psychology, suggestions, stunts and thought-provoking entertainment, this compelling series sees Derren pushing the boundaries of size and scale in order to take a deeper look at human behaviour and reaction.
