The guy in the opening sequence explains the game perfectly well. You see a story and have to decide if what you're being told is FOT... False! Or! True!

In 2000, this was brought back for a revamp with Sarah Cawood wearing a silly question-mark headband. Two contestants played three rounds of False or True questions, ending in the 45 second mad dash for points that happens so often when the production team can't think of anything better.

As a game show, this was pretty rubbish. As filler, it wasn't too bad.


The first three series of the original run aired on BBC2 on Sunday mornings. The fourth and final series aired on BBC1 on Monday afternoons, but the last three episodes aired back on BBC2 due to BBC1 airing sports coverage.
