Horizon: The Honesty Experiment
SBS  |  February 11, 2019

We all lie up to nine times a day. It's a fundamental part of being human. But is all this lying bad for us? In a world first, pioneering scientists are about to find out. With brand new technology, they rig three people - a priest, an advertising exec, and a YouTuber - making it impossible for them to lie undetected. Monitoring sweat, movement, and speech patterns, they then challenge the participants to go a whole week without being dishonest. This bold social experiment reveals the impact lying has on our mental state, and on our relationships. Could you go for a week without lying? Alternative title: Horizon: A Week Without Lying: The Honesty Experiment.
