The Truth Files

THE TRUTH FILES is a seven-part half-hour series for a mid-evening week-day slot on TV2. Each show is a journey or quest in which host Geoff Houtman goes in search of answers to questions about a hot-button topic.

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.
