The predictions of the prophet Michel Nostradamus have fascinated people for centuries, and many believe that his prophesies relate to the catastrophes that take place in the world we live in today. For the first time, his words will be put to forensic test as we search for the truth about one of history's most mysterious and misunderstood characters.
