The Truth Files

Thursday 6 November, 11.30pm

TV2’s The Truth Files is a quest in which host Geoff Houtman goes in search of answers to questions about a specific topic. Will my cell phone give me brain cancer? Is there any such thing as a miracle diet? Can people really communicate with the dead?

Geoff meets many people in the course of each show who help him on his quest by providing expert advice, medical or scientific know-how, anecdotal evidence, first-person experience or straight-out personal opinion.

Part of Geoff’s mission is to explore and debunk urban myths. Where did they come from? How did they start, and are they true? How can they be tested? Should they be discredited?

Part of Geoff’s mission is to explore and debunk urban myths – where did they come from – how did start – are they true – how can they be tested – should they be discredited?

  • Will my cell phone give me brain cancer?
  • Should party pills be made illegal?
  • Is there any such thing as a miracle diet?
  • Can people really communicate with the dead?
  • Who’s spying on me?

Geoff meets many people in the course of each show who help him on his quest – by providing expert advice, medical or scientific know-how, anecdotal evidence, first-person experience or straight-out personal opinion.

By the end of each episode, Geoff will have sorted fact from fiction and discovered answers to the questions he started out with. Hopefully.
