Truth or Busted explores the fact or fiction behind stuff you THINK you know about popular everyday topics!

Truth or Busted Science explores popular myths and legends about the world of science, inventions and discoveries in a light and humorous way that kids will find simply unputdownable. Statements like, 'Sneeze with your eyes open and they will pop out' or 'A black hole in our galaxy will eventually destroy the Earth' are examined as well as where the ideas came from, whether they have any basis in truth, or whether they are simply folklore, myths or legends. Each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation.

Paul Harrison

Paul was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and grew up in County Durham. This left him with an accent that people find trustworthy, surveys have confirmed. It also left him with an allegiance to Newcastle United football club. Newcastle won their last major trophy months before he was born. In bleak moments, he wonders if this is his fault.
After a degree in Southampton he worked in a variety of different jobs with mixed success. He's been a labourer for a roofer (rubbish), a labourer for a builder (he was keen, but rubbish), a waiter (really rubbish) and a barman (merely adequate). He's sold double glazing (rubbish), toys (not bad), and garden furniture (all right at that). Somehow he never got sacked-it must have been that trustworthy accent. Since then he's been a children's books editor (not bad at that, actually) and now he writes them for what may loosely be described as a living.

Paul lives with his wife and two children in West Sussex.
