BBC News - A French TV documentary features people in a spoof game show administering what they are told are near lethal electric shocks to rival contestants. ... 82% of participants in the Game of Death agreed to pull the lever. ... Christophe Nick, the maker of the documentary, said they were amazed that so many participants obeyed the sadistic orders of the game show presenter. "They are not equipped to disobey. They don't want to do it, they try to convince the authority figure that they should stop, but they don't manage to." ... The results reflect those of a similar experiment carried out almost 50 years ago at Yale University by social psychologist Stanley Milgram. "With Milgram, 62% of people obeyed an abject authority. In the setting of television, it's 80%." [LINK]
