Is It Real? is an American television series that originally aired from April 25, 2005 to August 14, 2007[dubious ] on the National Geographic Channel. The program examines popular or persistent mysteries to determine whether the featured cryptozoological creature (cryptid) or supernatural phenomenon is real or not. The show typically includes interviews with believers or proponents of the featured paranormal claims, and then with scientists and skeptics who attempt to find rational explanations for such phenomena using a scientific approach.

Reception[edit]

On June 23, 2008, the Independent Investigations Group (IIG) awarded Is It Real? as one of those rare shows in the media that encourage science and critical thinking.[3]
