Travelling all over the world, from the sweltering heat of the Arizona desert, to the snow-covered streets of Russia, award-winning journalist Hamish Macdonald is on the search for extraordinary people and the unexpected truths behind stories we thought we already knew.

An exciting collision of reportage and experience, The Truth Is sees Macdonald explore the worlds of war, politics and pop culture in this six-part series. Each episode will cover two different and surprising stories with one thing in common: they are all very human.
