Evan Davis explores the issue of deception by talking to those who have had cause to be economical with the truth . From doctors, guilty of well intentioned obfuscation, to ex-fraudsters skilled at outright lies, over the next four weeks, as Evan takes over the One to One chair, he discusses the complicated truth about lying with those, for whom the truth is rarely plain and never simple.
In the first programme he talks to Rob George, Consultant in Palliative Care who explains why complete honesty is not always in the best interest of the patient and his need to second guess what information the terminally ill need and when.
