Russian Roulette LiveThe original and most infamous of Derren's live stunts caused nationwide controversy and had viewers terrified. In a secret location, a member of the public selected from a nationwide search is asked to load a real gun with only one bullet. The gun is passed to Derren, who must work out what chamber contains the live bullet, whilst firing the other chambers against his head. Will his skills give him the power to dodge the bullet?The HeistDerren uses the cover of a motivational seminar and documentary to see if he can persuade a group of businessmen and women to steal £100,000 in what they believe is an armed robbery. How much will it take for him to make a responsible human mind cross into dangerous and criminal behaviour? One of the most compelling and disturbing hours of television to be shown for many years.The SanceAt the time of broadcast, this was the most complained about show in television history, and had the nation cowering behind its sofas. 12 students take part in various stages of a sance using a variety of Victorian methods - from automatic writing and the Ouija Board, through to a chilling possession in the climactic dark seance. Viewers watching live will also contribute with their own experiences at home. Brilliantly challenging the myths of spiritualism, will Derren find a modern audience any more sceptical than the terrified Victorians in this roller-coaster of an experiment?The SystemPosing as an anonymous tipster, Derren repeatedly predicts, twenty-four hours in advance, the winners of horse-races and sends those tips to a single mother from London. She starts to bet and win increasing amounts, until she bets every last penny she has in one final race. But is there really a perfect system? Derren explains his fool-proof method for guaranteeing a win every time, and takes us galloping through the limits of our perception up to an edge-of the seat finale.Special Features:None Listed
