What is the power of words when delivered as a spell? What even is a spell? We examine the compelling evidence for the power of suggestion, placebo effect and the odd case of a man who was officially scared to death. Plus, Ben conducts an experiment on Peter with the help of a white witch.

Ben and Peter, like two drunken men in the pub, try to make sense of time. We delve into Carlo Rovelli's book 'The Order of Time'. What is the past and future? Does the present exist?

Are the maps we reply on completely factual, or do they contain some lies? From the London A-Z to exotic lands, we look into fascinating cases and prove - once again - that we can't always believe what we are told. Bradley Walsh is also involved (but doesn't appear).

When residents of Devon woke up to a heavy snowfall in February 1855 they had a shock - 100 miles of cloven prints formed by a clearly bipedal creature. What caused this is still a mystery, but UFO activity in the area could provide a clue. But this is not the only case of strange prints in the snow as we shall find out!

We can often rationalise the bizarre behaviour or paranormal encounter of an individual, but what is going when when large groups of people are possessed by mass hysteria. What happens when it takes hold at an army barracks, or onboard a commercial flight. We also delve deeper into a couple of previously covered stories, including the strange case of the meowing nuns.

Before Jack the Ripper, another Jack caused terror on the streets of London, Spring-heeled Jack. This seemingly shape shifting entity would attack at will, then leap over huge walls to make his escape. Was Spring-heeled Jack a man playing sick pranks, a cryptid, an imp or devil, or even an alien stranded in the early 1800s. We investigated.
