Mind control?

Harping back to the Derren Brown Russian Roulette stunt for a minute...

When they originally started advertising for candidates eager to try and get Mr Brown to blow his brains out, the advert stated that the event would take place live on October 26th 2003. Googling for "Derren Brown" and "October 26" brings up this summary:

Derren Brown
Derren Brown plays Russian Roulette live! On October 26 world television history will be made. Derren Brown will play Russian Roulette live on Channel 4.

The same page on Derren's web site now reflects the actual screening date of the event, October 5th 2003, and Google's cache no longer holds the original page.

Using my mentalist powers and reading Derren Brown's mind, I'm guessing that rescheduling might be due to this man emerging from his little box on Sunday 19th October 2003?
