With the help of digital forensics and scientific analysis, Real, Fake or Unknown picks apart some of the web’s viral clips, uncovering how they were made and why.

Tonight we see a thrill seeking hoverboarder hanging above the streets in Dubai, a Canadian man playing chicken with a moving train and a snowboarder that has a grizzly encounter with a bear. Did any of these events actually happen? Hopefully, we’ll find out.
