Illusionist Derren Brown appears to predict all six winning National Lottery numbers live on television. But just how did he do it?(via Derren Brown Blog)
Brown opened The Event Live, shown last night on Channel 4 to coincide with the draw, by saying he hoped to get five of the six numbers right.
For security reasons, his 10-minute slot was broadcast from a virtually empty studio with just two cameramen in attendance.
Brown stood with six balls he said contained his prediction, and a television set from which he showed the BBC's National Lottery show to prove we are "absolutely live and in synch with the BBC".
