Do you believe in time travel?

The lives of nearly a third of Britons could soon be made much easier thanks to the gift of time travel - or so they believe.

A survey of 3,000 people published today revealed that 30% of adults across the UK mistakenly believe that time travel is actually possible and not confined to the realms of fictional films or television.

The research, commissioned by Birmingham Science City, suggests that programmes such as Doctor Who and Ashes to Ashes may have had a hand in the blurring of lines between science fiction and science fact.
