Today the ex-leader

of the national counter

terrorism security office

has gone on record to say

it is a mistake to assume

the next UK terrorist

attack will be in London,

and that jihadists could

just as easily target

Bristol or Portsmouth.

Michael Burke

resigned last month,

citing differences of

opinion for his resignation.

With the terror threats

at the second highest level,

the shadow defense ministered

has claimed that UK borders

have never been more vulnerable.

40% of the UK borders patrol

vessels have been moved

to the Aegean sea to deal

with the migration crisis.

- Hello?

- Ms. Kane?

I'm calling from east Sussex

hospital surgical unit.

We have a patient who

needs his appendix removed,

but he's highly

allergic to anesthetic.

Our regular therapist is

already engaged elsewhere.

I see you've not

practiced with us before,

could you provide a solution?

- Yup. Yeah, of course.

- Our patient is in

a critical condition.

How soon could you get here?

- Um, I can be

there in 30 minutes.

Pain is not required

for this procedure.

- Pain is not

required for this procedure.

- Dr. Collins,

this is Holly Kane.

- We're a

little bit pressed for time.

- Soon you're

going to hear a rapid beat.

This will entrain your

brainwaves into theta rhythm.

It's a trance like state

where your subconscious can

acquire information up to

2,000 words per minute.

Subliminal suggestions

will then synchronize

with the theta rhythm.

- Hello?

- Good afternoon.

This is David Goldmen,

senior registrar

at the east Sussex hospital.

I'm phoning about yesterdays

emergency appendectomy.

The patient is still numb.

- That's to be expected.

- The attending

psychiatrist doesn't think so.

- The psychiatrist?

- He believes your

technique is dangerous.

- It isn't dangerous.

The patient just isn't

feeling any pain.

Just give it time, it'll pass.

- He's watched the video footage

and he thinks there are

grounds for malpractice.

- This is ridiculous.

What's his name?

I'll speak to him.

- I'm afraid our legal

department will be in touch,

Ms. Kane.

- I'm not my sister.

I'm not my sister.

I'm not my sister.

- Sounds like bollocks to me.

The attending psychiatrist

is obviously the one

that's incorrect.

- It's just another mind

control technique to them.

- F*** him!

Look, he hasn't

got a case anyway.

Have a drink.

Oh, have some drugs.

- What's the next cocktail?

- 90 mils of Md with a

pinch of Ket and Thai grass.

You know, you could

this and retreat.

- I need something stronger.

- Oh.

I guess you're talkin' about

research rather than recreation

since you won't even smoke

a joint for fear of turning

into your sister.

What do you need?

- What you gave me is great,

but I need to go deeper.

Deeply held beliefs are just

further down than I thought.

I need to get to a place where

I can access the absolute

depths of my subconscious.

- You need to get out more.

You know, step off

the hamster wheel.

Kickback, unwind, chill out.

Relax, playa.

- Please.

- I suppose it

might be possible.

- Oh, you are a legend.

- You haven't told anyone

else about this, have you?

- No one knows apart

from me and you.

- Alright, well as long

as it stays that way,

I'll give it a go.

- That is why I love you.

- You're buying the shots.

- Fine.

- Hello, Ms. Kane.

My name is Marvin Greenslade.

You might've heard of me,

I was fortunate enough

in the 1980's to achieve

one or two successes

in the debriefing

of cult victims.

It should be easy

enough to research me.

I'd very much like to speak

to you about something.

Please, call me back anytime.

Marvin Greenslade?

- It's Holly Kane.

- Ah, Ms. Kane!

How very kind of you

to return my call.

- I did my thesis

in subliminals.

Your work was very influential.

- Forgive me, I'm in the

process of escaping a rather

tedious gala dinner.

Would you allow me to buy you

lunch tomorrow here in London?

I'd very much like to speak

to you about something I've

been working on.

- Security

forces are on high alert

today after Islamic state

terrorists told the United Kingdom

to expect a doomsday attack

that will eclipse the brutal

Paris killings and turn

children's hair white.

The threat was made in the

latest edition of extremist

Arabic newspaper, al-naba.

- Theta entrained

by neuro suggestion.


- There is a little bit

more to it than that.

- But I'm guessing you haven't

given up all your trade


- Well, I wouldn't want anybody

to replicate my technique

without my permission.

- Just as I thought.

- So what can I do for

you, Mr. Greenslade?

- Marvin, please.

I run a research unit for

psychological investigation.

- Most research units wouldn't

go anywhere near something

like this, they'd see

it as brainwashing.

- As one of the original members

of the anti-cult movement,

I don't hold with

that view at all.

We've found plenty of

evidence of the efficacy

of such techniques.

In fact, I'm of the firm

belief that in the 1980's

the whole concept of mind

control was deliberately

discredited by vested interests,

including mainstream

religions, governments,

and the corporate world,

all of whom never stopped

trying to control our minds.

- The general populace

has been brainwashed

to dismiss brainwashing.

I can believe that.

So who funds you?

- Oh, I came into some

money which allows me to

indulge my passion for

researching projects which might

benefit society.

- Why me?

- Because no one else thought

to synchronize subliminal

suggestion with the

whole brain state.

Have you done trials?

- Not yet.

- I can get that

organized for you.

I'm a great believer

in experimentation.

I could also probably

extricate you from any legal

proceedings attended on your

little hospital adventure.

- You're very well informed.

- Old school tie, I'm afraid.

The senior registrar

was a classmate.

- Well, I would need some

time to develop my technique.

I have clients I'd

still need to see.

- Of course.

But surely you've already proved

that your technique works.

All that's missing are

the clinical trials.

- Most hypnosis can

achieve what I've done.

I need to ensure that I can

consistently change deeply held

beliefs before the trials.

I need this to work on

any limiting belief.

- To get the unconscious to

accept whatever you choose

for it to believe.

It's the holy grail.

- People suffer when the
