DERREN BROWN: THE EXPERIMENT
THURSDAY 26TH DECEMBER, 8.30PM
TV ONE brings you a new series starring Derren Brown, a performer famous for combining magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship in order to predict and control human behaviour.
Each episode of Derren Brown: The Experiments asks and answers a single question, featuring Derren’s jaw-dropping mix of stunts, suggestion and tested psychological experiments to illustrate how easily our behaviour can be manipulated.
From testing the limits of hypnosis, to discovering what makes a person ‘lucky’, Derren pushes the boundaries to discover our capacity for evil, how we determine what is right and wrong, and if it’s possible for a person to admit to a crime they didn’t commit.
