‘Secrets of the Hand’ encore screening on SBS at 7.30 pm Monday 15th of February, 2016.
The real science of palm reading part of the award winning documentary series ‘Tale of the Unexpected’ by Genepool Productions.
For thousands of years, in fairgrounds and temples, palm readers have claimed our hands encode valuable information. Is this just superstition? Or is there, buried beneath the theatre and the cliches, a core of solid scientific evidence for palm-reading’s predictive powers? 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.
Episode Director: Anna Bateman, Series Producer: Peter Rees, Executive Producers: Sonya Pemberton & Michael Cordell
‘Secrets of the Hand’ is part of the award winning ‘Tales Of The Unexpected’ a 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. Come with us to where nothing is quite as it seems, where diseases are diagnosed by palm-readers, where paternity uncertainty drives the mating game, and where breasts are a toxic health hazard.
