Why do you get the feeling that the people behind this have been watching too many Jim Carrey movies?

In this programme, three participants are rigged to make it impossible for them to lie without being detected. The trio will try to spend an entire week telling the truth, while scientists will examine their mental states to see how being forced to tell the truth affects us.

Horizon: a Week Without Lying is on BBC Two at 21.00.
