Psychic Powers

She drew a boat in water.

New-Age Theories

Derren Brown instructed a leading new-age theorist to sleep with a machine attached to her pillow for five days. She was told that this machine used crystal technology to record her dreams. In fact it was simply a box with a switch which turned a LED on and off. Derren recalled the dreams correctly including the fact that some were in black-and-white instead of colour. The participant was so impressed that she invited Derren to appear on her radio show the next day which he declined.

Christian Evangelism

Derren performed instant conversions on a group consisting of members of the public all of whom were atheists . After the first instant conversion many of the group chose to leave concerned by what they had just witnessed. Derren then proceeded to convert another individual and then the remainder of the group at once. In each case he caused the participants to at least accept the possibility that there was a God when previously they had all refused to do so. At the end of the show a notice on screen announced that the participants had all been "de-converted" before they left.

During the s ance Derren tricks three women into believing that he is in contact with deceased loved ones and many tears are shed. Afterwards it was explained to the participants that it was a trick and those appearing allowed the broadcast.
