Derren Brown

Postby emma_leigh_2003 » Mon Oct 06, 2003 8:18 am

Did anyone else watch this amazing programme last night on channel 4? I'm very sceptical that this wasn't staged, i'd have to see it with my own eye's if he trusted his life with just mind control, but it had me on the edge of my seat when he started holding the gun to his head. The very moment he first pulled that trigger i hid behinde a cushion cos i didn't want to see his brain's fly all over the room and camera's. But what was good to see was Derren sitting there for a few minute's before the final 2 attempt's, you could just see that his past was flashing before his eye's.

I didn't watch it, but reckon it must have been fixed. Don't think the tv companies would be allowed to screen someone killing themselves live in front of the nation if it had turned out that one of the barrels he was going to fire had the bullet in it.

It wasn't "live", there was a 15 minute time delay, just in case he did blow his clever brain cells out. He's fit as ****

Oh right, did they tell the viewer that there was a delay then?

I thought they did. I dont think Channel 4 would put it out "live" live. Would be slapped with law suits for causing mental trauma!

Well it's obvious that it wasn't live, it's just like Big Brother and The Salon with the 15 minute time delay, so they have time to edit out swear words during the day, or things that they didnt want people to see.

Personally i don't think anything on Tv that say's it's live is actually live. I bet you even morning Tv has some sort of delay on it :lol:

I think it was really stupid of channel 4 to show this type of stunt on Tv especially after those gun attacks last week.

According to this article on the Sky News website, the bullet in the gun was a blank.
It also says in the article:

A spokesman for Brown declined to comment but said if the illusionist had fired a blank round into his head "he would have died anyway".

If thats true how come the naked model went unnoticed the other week???

i was impressed with the show, if someone wishes to play russian roulette then it's their choice, as for it being shown on tv i don't have a problem with it.
