About the Show
What happens when irresistible impulses and delusional thoughts take over people's minds? This documentary series investigates the manic behaviour caused by three psychological disorders.
Series 1 Summary
Sarah Myers takes an in-depth look at three of the most common manias: egomania, where self-obsession spirals out of all control; pyromania, where the starting of fires becomes a sensual act of almost sexual significance; and erotomania, the stalker's certainty that the object of their obsession loves them, even though they may have never met.

Episode 2 - Pyromania
This documentary examines the many forms of pyromania: the state of mind when one doesn't set fires for revenge or money, but for the simple love of fire itself.
Episode 3 - Erotomania
Film examining the mind of 'love obsessives', delving deep into the dark side of love, and providing an insight in to the obsessions of erotomaniacs.
