Last of 13 programmes presented by Colin Blakemore. The Violent Mind
A woman with low blood sugar has violent thoughts; and a normally mild man, contaminated by insecticide, brutally murders a stranger. Usually, we count as criminals only those judged responsible for their actions - occasionally the courts accept that violent offenders are mentally ill. But
Professor Blakemore asks: are any of us entirely responsible for our actions? As we learn more about the structure and chemistry of the brain, should we admit there is no 'free will'? Film editor KEITH RAVEN
