Summary In Derren Brown: Messiah, renowned psychological illusionist Derren Brown will challenge certain belief systems and our tendency not to question them. In this television special, Brown takes his debunking mission to America. In a country where his mind control skills are unknown, he sets out once again to demonstrate just how easy is it to persuade people to believe unquestionably in an idea just because it comes from someone in a position of authority.He tries to convince five leading figures that he has powers in their particular field of expertise: Christian evangelism, alien abduction, psychic powers, New Age theories and contacting the dead.The program investigates whether he can succeed in convincing the five 'experts' of his powers. And it even goes further to see if they will openly endorse him as a true practitioner. From the UK) (Entertainment) M (L) CC Follow the conversation on Twitter #DerrenBrown
