This 3-part film examines and updates Milgram's original Obedience experiments through the ground-breaking work of Professors' Haslam and Reicher:
1. Origins locates Milgram's research in the nightmare of the Jewish holocaust, the capture and trial of Adolph Eichmann and Arendt's "Banality of evil".
2. Research examines Milgram's participants, methodology and findings, with a focus on variations in obedience, the agentic state explanation and its critique.
3. Social identity moves the focus "Beyond Milgram" to Haslam and Reicher's re-interpretation of his findings.
