Episode 1: Your Face Says It All

Summary

Documentary revealing hidden secrets of the human face, exploring what they say about people. Lindsay Lohan, Tinchy Stryder and Katie Piper discuss their relationships with their own faces, and how they judge other people. Comedian Stephen K Amos meets the Metropolitan Police's `Super Recognisers', and actor Keith Allen tests his face-reading skills with a game of poker.

Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Humans have always made split-second, instinctive judgements based on a person’s facial appearance. In fact, how someone’s face appears to others can have a dramatic effect on their fortune. Remember the public response to the televised JFK/Nixon debate?

This doc skips through all things facial: the messages we send through our expressions, the perfect poker face, whether gaydar exists, the police’s “super recognisers” and the archetypal 007 face.

Stephen K Amos, Grace Dent and Keith Allen give their views while one scientist has a tip for when you’re feeling glum: clamp a pencil between your teeth to force a smile – it’ll immediately make you feel better.
