Summary Renowned psychological illusionist, performer, writer and UK television personality Derren Brown presents his television special, Derren Brown: The Heist. Derren demonstrates his unique and almost uncanny ability to misdirect, manipulate and mesmerise. These elements are combined with tested psychological experiments to take a deeper look at human behaviour and reaction, and show how easily behaviours can be manipulated. Under the guise of a motivational seminar and a follow-up documentary, Derren attempts to persuade a group of responsible, middle-management businessmen and women to steal $150,000 in an armed robbery. Such is the premise for one of his most ambitious and challenging specials to date. Derren demonstrates his masterful skills in persuasion as he shows how little it takes for these people to cross into deviant behaviour.
