What is the “Mandela Effect”?
FIRST BROADCAST : November 28, 2019 9:00 pm

Tonight Clive & Klaudia try to understand the "Mandela Effect", a phenomenon where different people remember completely different things about a place, a person or an event. It was so named when it was discovered that many hundreds of people around the world believe they remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s rather than his release from prison and rising to become President of South Africa. Other examples of this "effect" include people remembering seeing a film that was never made and climbing up to the torch of the Statue of Liberty in New York harbour which was actually closed to the Public in 1916!

So, is this evidence of people being able to travel to parallel "time lines"? Or that we are living in an artificial virtual world as in the film "The Matrix" perhaps? Or maybe, there is a more down to earth explanation that people's memories are not accurate or confused? Klaudia is a Psychologist so she thinks she knows the answer!
