Sects, Cults and Mind Control
Saturdays 4-5pm, Season 1 2013
Sects, Cults and Mind Control is all about looking at how cults work, from their techniques in luring people in and keeping them in, to deconstructing famous cults such as Heaven’s Gate, Jonestown and Scientology.
The show will explore the history of cults, features that distinguish a cult from a religious movement, and how defining what a cult is can actually be difficult and problematic.
Events in cult history and how they came to happen will also be discussed.
