Contestants on a French quiz show were willing to torture a man to death with high voltage electricity, live on television. They didn’t know it was actually all part of an experiment, and their victim was an actor. The fake show called ’Game of Death’, featured participants electrocuting contestants who answered incorrectly until they screamed in agony. Psychologists were exploring how far people are willing to push moral boundaries, in their pursuit of celebrity. 80 volunteers took part in what they thought was the pilot for a new TV programme, and just 16 of them refused to inflict pain. One of the show’s directors denied he was exploiting contestants.
