Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction is a science fiction anthology series that could be characterized as a cross between Twilight Zone and Unsolved Mysteries. The premise is that you would see several (usually 4 or 5) ministories in which some were true (in so far as they reportedly occurred on some level) and some were fictional (completely made up by the show's writers). The audience was asked to see if they could tell which shows were "fact" and which were "fiction". At the end of each show the audience would find out which stories were real, and be amazed at how difficult it is to tell the difference from real and make-believe.
