Tales of the Unexpected

Tales of the Unexpected is a new strand of provocative, confronting and thoroughly entertaining science documentaries. Each episode reveals a fascinating, sometimes awkward, and frequently unsettling world where peculiar ideas are put to the test.

Tales of the Unexpected - Ep 1- The Secret Life of Breasts

New science is revealing breasts in a way that we've never seen them before. But now some scientists believe breasts may be a hidden toxic waste ground, living time-bombs that might endanger not only their owners - but also those who suckle at them.

Tales of the Unexpected - Ep 2- Secrets of the Hand

For thousands of years, in fairgrounds and temples, palm readers have claimed our hands encode valuable information. Is this just superstition? Can our hands really tell us anything about our past, our present, or our future? For the first time on television, palm-reading is put to the test.

Tales of the Unexpected - Ep 3- Who's your Daddy?

One in three children, claim many tabloids, may not be biologically related to the man they call Dad. Could this really be true? This program conducts the first ever purpose-designed paternity poll, asking some truly awkward questions.
