Who’s Your Daddy? – Tales of the Unexpected

(Genepool Productions, 2014)

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. Comparing rates of paternity uncertainty in Australia and the Untied States, we ask what is the real rate of ‘non-paternity’, and might there be biological survival benefits for children born outside marriage? Following parents and children as they seek to uncover the truth, we discover how, today, there’s nowhere to hide your genes.

Director and Series Producer PETER REES Executive Producers SONYA PEMBERTON & MICHAEL CORDELL

‘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. 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.
