'How to Kill a Human Being: Former Conservative MP, Michael Portillo pushes his body to the brink of death in an investigation into the science of execution. Disturbing scenes. [AD,S]'

HVFX were involved from the outset in this groundbreaking piece of documentary television. As part of an exploration of the relative merits of the various methods of execution, we re-created a physiologically accurate judicial electrocution.

Presented by Michael Portillo, former secretary of state for defence, and produced by Optomen Television, one of the UK's leading independent production companies, this programme tackles a tough subject in a stimulating manner. Enjoy.

Safe Coiling,
