Faking It

Short Cuts, Series 2 Episode 2 of 6

28 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 18 September 2012

Nina Garthwaite presents a showcase for delightful and adventurous short documentaries. A selection of brief encounters, true stories, radio adventures and found sound.

In 'Faking It', she blurs the line between fact and fiction with tales of love, lying and a loose grip on reality.

The indie pop duo Summer Camp construct a 'documentary song' which delves into the falsity of flirting and those moments when we realise we've really fallen in love and the actor Jonathan Keeble reveals his real - or is it his false - identity ...

Nina also learns how you successfully conceal your true self in the workplace, why you shouldn't trust your new boyfriend's grandmother and the dangers of picking a fight with a Ouija board.
