Derren Brown: The Great Art Robbery TX: 13 Dec 2013, Week 50
Friday 13th December, 21:00, Channel 4
In this brand new episode, master illusionist and showman Derren Brown plans to pull off the perfect crime: He’s bet renowned art collector Ivan Massow, that he can steal a painting from right under his nose. In true Derren style, he will tell him exactly which painting he plans to target – a work by Turner-nominated British brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman no less – as well as what time the theft will happen. He’ll even give him a photograph of the person that’s going to take it. In order to pull off the theft Derren recruits a crew. But he’s not going to use career criminals or skilled cat burglars. He’s going to use members of society that tend to slip by unnoticed. He’s going to use old age pensioners.
