    Fear & Faith Apocalypse Behind The Mischief Miracles For Sale Hero At 30,000 Feet Derren Brown Investigates
FEAR & FAITH
November 2012

 

Consisting of two very different shows, this two-parter explores the power of ideas, the overcoming of fear, and the nature of religious faith. Part One is an astonishing experiment into the power of placebo. A team of volunteers, each crippled by a different type of fear, visits what they believe to be a pharmacological research laboratory to receive a course of a powerful new drug that will eliminate their debilitating conditions. In Part Two, Derren explores a psychological take on religion and puts his theory to the test by converting an atheist to Christianity.
Both shows prove to be ultimately moving, and powerfully thought-provoking.
