Steve turns the spotlight on mind control. Thanks to works of fiction, the idea that government agencies have the ability to brianwash people to commit dastardly acts has firmly lodged itself in the public imagination.

From hypnosis to narcotics and now microwave technology, Punt calls in expert witnesses to ascertain whether it really is possible to get people to act against their free will.
