I am sorry if this has already been brought up elsewhere in the Café.

Being in the United States, I am unfamiliar with Derren Brown's TV specials. I have read his books and like his style, but have never seen him actually perform. Anyone know of a way I could get to see a few of the shows?

Thanks in advance.

I understand he may be doing some TV stuff in the US next year, but no details yet.

You can buy a DVD of his last UK TV series 'Mind Control', but I don't think you can get that in the States (?), so you might have to order it from the UK.

I was lucky to find one staring at me in an HMV store in Hong Kong. HMV is Hong Kong's answer to Tower records.

Hi Dave,

You can get a copy of Derren's DVD "Inside Your Mind" from http://www.magictricks.co.uk at a relatively cheap price. I know when I bought it from them it was roughly £10 cheaper than most retail stores.

The DVD itself is a compilation of routines (73 minutes worth) from his first couple of "Mind Control" TV specials from around the 2000-2002 era.

In my personal opinion, I think they're fantastic, and I'm sure anyone who appreciates that sort of thing would love this DVD.

However, the real golden nugget is the extra 53 minutes of extras. There's a great interview with Derren, but also a handful of routines that were recorded but never made it to the final cut of the TV specials.

One of these is a routine where he takes several car salesman and proceeds to "read their minds". There is then an added feature where Derren actually explains what signals he's looking for, clues, tell-tale signs, etc., when performing this effect. It will be especially interesting to those who study NLP, psychology, etc.

All in all- I think it's an excellent value DVD full of top notch content. And although I'm a blatant Derren fan (and I'm not ashamed of it!) therefore may be expected to be biased, I think neutrals would also agree it's an excellent buy - not if you're expecting an instructional DVD, but just for entertainment and a lesson in presentation.

Go get a copy! Smile

Dave here's a direct link -

http://www.magictricks.co.uk/prodshow.asp?code=481

Unfortunately it's Region 2 encoded and in the PAL format, meaning it's only compatible with European systems. But if you have a multi-region player that plays PAL DVDs also, then you should be okay. Smile

You can find all shows on the Internet, as I understand. I wish I knew where.

If someone has more info on that please let us know here.

Thanks everyone. If someone know's where they are on the internet, I would appreciate it.

Otherwise, I'll look at getting it from the UK magic shop and find a DVD player that can play it.

All the material Derren did is available on the Internet for free downloading. One must only look in the right places.

If you are familiar with torrents you can probably find them at suprnova.org

Or other torrent sites. You'd have to check, though. Of course, buying the shows is always the best way.

Probably best to buy the DVD. After all free downloads are piracy. It's only going to make it less likely for performers to release material if it's being pirated.

If people pirate the DVD that is one thing, but recording a show from TV is not illegal.

It's not illegal to record for your own viewing, but as I understand it, it can't be distributed and shared (and therefore, downloaded).

Ive got all his specials on one dvd... It took while to collect all, but its worth the effort to watch him perform...

It is illegal, any rebroadcast is illegal by playing it.....

But the C4 link is the channel which owns the rights to broadcast the show, so not illegal (at least in the UK!)

And as for ripping DVDs - sure it is illegal, but what's the difference between that and copying a CD, which I recon everyone here has done at some time?

Just a hypothetical question - not trying to pick a fight with anyone Smile

Majik123,

I don't know of any scheduled airings, but I would keep your eye on E4 (Channel 4's cable channel) as they're prone to throwing on the odd show now and again. Smile
