Over the last century scientists have devised many ingenious methods to unlock the secrets of the mind. In this three-part series, host Michael Mosley investigates some of these groundbreaking experiments, now considered classics in the field of psychology. Delving into CIA thought control projects, tests on children, and brain surgery blunders, Into the Mind traces the history of experimental psychology from its dubious beginnings through to the profound new understanding it has yielded of emotions, free will, and the mind itself.

A BBC Production. 3-part series, 49–52 minutes each.

“One can always count on the BBC to provide solid programming on general educational topics, and the 3-DVD set Into the Mind is a fine example…. These programs are particularly useful because Mosley encourages the viewer to think critically about controversial experiments such as Milgram’s obedience study….  Recommended.”  —Educational Media Reviews Online.
