“Men in Black”

8 PM et / 11 PM et

Ever since UFO sightings began, reports of mysterious dark suited men have followed. These Men-in-Black have been spotted around the world, threatening witnesses and destroying evidence.

Are they government agents, extraterrestrial or something demonic?

 

Tennessee Wildman / Subterranean Reptoids

9 PM et / 12 AM et

Rockwood and Johnson City, TN – Within the state of Tennessee, the mountainous region along its eastern border is like a world unto itself. These untamed forests veiled by a smoky haze are said to hide a Wildman, a hairy relative of Bigfoot with a fearsome battle cry and a taste for flesh.

When the Epperson brothers seek to protect their land from an unidentified predator in 1981, they are ambushed by a “manimal” monster they thought was only a legend.

In a separate incident in 1997, cousins Robb Phillips and Randy Sparks survive a close encounter with the Wildman in the woods only to find that it’s followed them to their car.

 

Los Angeles – Since the 1930s, engineers have warned of secret caverns and underground civilizations below the city streets of Anaheim. Tall, intelligent reptilian creatures known as Reptoids are believed to be the masterminds behind these secret lairs.

Some experts believe them to be descendants of dinosaurs, now evolved and clever enough to hide. A more sinister view holds that they are an alien race tasked with capturing and experimenting upon humans, in particular, attractive human females.

Two women recount their own harrowing encounters with Reptoids bent upon capturing them for genetic experimentation and breeding programs.

In Search of Aliens

History 2

“The Mystery of Loch Ness”

6 PM et

The Loch Ness Monster is one of the world’s most enduring mysteries. But there have also been accounts of similar cryptids all over the planet.

Sightings of these mysterious creatures have been documented for hundreds of years in various cultural folklores. Are these fantastic creatures leftover dinosaurs, mythical animals or something that traveled to Earth millions of years ago? Or might the sightings of these strange beasts be a glimpse into the past caused by a disturbance in the space-time continuum?

Ancient Astronaut theorist Giorgio Tsoukalos travels from the Highlands of Scotland to the shores of Vermont’s Lake Champlain in his quest to learn more about these elusive lake monsters. Could there be a link between two of the most famous creatures in the world–Nessie and Champ? Is there a correlation between the geology of their locations? And what surprising role might physics play in understanding just what eyewitnesses claim to have seen?

 

“The Hunt for Atlantis”

7 PM et

Ever since Plato first wrote about the mysterious island of Atlantis, it has captured the imagination of adventurers and academics alike. Was Atlantis merely a myth, or could it have actually existed in the remote past? Did Atlantis just disappear as Plato described? And could it have been the home of an advanced civilization that created the human race?

Ancient Astronaut Theorist Giorgio A. Tsoukalos explores the most recent discoveries related to the centuries old story of Atlantis. By investigating a series of clues, Tsoukalos endeavors to narrow down the possible location of Atlantis. Could evidence be found in a strange egg-shaped stone in Portugal? What secrets can be uncovered on the island of Santorini, Greece?

Could Atlantis have been an empire with a network that stretched around the world? Or was it something else entirely? Something that, perhaps, came from the stars?

 

“The Roswell Rock”

8 PM et / 12 AM et

A mysterious rock bearing a cryptic design was discovered in Roswell, New Mexico in 2004. Now coined “The Roswell Rock,” this piece of stone is unusually smooth and possesses unique magnetic properties. Even more intriguing is that the motif on the rock–a sequence of triangles and crescents–is an exact match to a crop circle found in England nearly two decades ago.

Ancient Astronaut Theorist Giorgio Tsoukalos sets out to determine the origin of this intriguing stone. Through a series of experiments Tsoukalos unveils whether The Roswell Rock is merely a man-made fabrication or something much more. How could the precise design have been created without leaving evidence of altering the stone?

Why does this small rock react to magnets? And most baffling of all–why does the design match a crop circle that appeared more than 4,000 miles away from the Nevada desert?

 

“Nazi Time Travelers”

9 PM et / 1 AM et

At the height of World War II, the Nazis engaged their top scientists to develop “wonder weapons”–weapons that were so scientifically advanced they could have turned the tide of the war against the Allies.

According to testimony, one of the top-secret projects was code-named “Die Glocke.” Die Glocke was believed to be a bell-shaped time travel device that could soar through the sky and eventually reach the speed of light and beyond. Did Die Glocke actually exist? And if so, could it have been based on alien technology?

Theorist Giorgio A. Tsoukalos travels from Poland to Pennsylvania on the trail of the Nazis’ “wonder weapon.” Did the Nazis find advanced knowledge in ancient texts that enabled them to develop anti-gravity technology? And was the construction of a time travel device made possible by reverse-engineering extraterrestrial technology?

 

“Searching for Bigfoot”

10 PM et / 2 AM et

In 1958, a bulldozer operator in Northern California discovered 16-inch human-like footprints, and the legend of Bigfoot was born. Today, there are hundreds of reported sightings of big hairy monsters in America, but nowhere are the stories more prolific than in America’s Pacific Northwest.

Many reports of encounters with the giant hair-covered creature are accompanied by accounts of UFO activity and unexplained lights in the sky. Could the creature known as Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, really exist? If so, could it be living proof that extraterrestrials were not only here, but may still be living in our midst?

Ancient Astronaut theorist Giorgio A. Tsoukalos joins the Olympic Project and anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum on an overnight expedition on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. Will their arsenal of high-tech equipment capture images or sounds that confirm Bigfoot’s presence?

 

“The Mystery of the Cyclops”

11 PM et / 3 AM et

The mysterious Mediterranean island of Malta lies south of Sicily and is home to megalithic structures built by a mysterious prehistoric society. According to scholars, the massive blocks even pre-date the Great Pyramid of Giza. Just who were the people that built these sophisticated structures?

Local folklore describes Malta as being the home of giants and the legendary one-eyed creature known as Cyclops. Could these stories be true–or could they offer clues to an extraterrestrial connection?

Ancient Astronaut theorist Giorgio Tsoukalos investigates Matla’s giant stone structures, unexplained rock carvings and mysterious elongated skulls. Could these strange antiquities be connected–and might they prove that there was a highly advanced civilization on Malta in the remote past–one that was perhaps in contact with ancient astronauts?

Josh Gates Searches for Truth

Behind the World’s Most Iconic Legends

 

From lost cities to buried treasure and stolen art, the world abounds with fascinating, iconic legends. In Travel Channel’s new original series “Expedition Unknown,” premiering Thursday, January 8 with a special two-hour episode at 9 PM ET/PT.

Avid explorer Josh Gates sets out on a global journey in pursuit of answers to some of the world’s most puzzling stories. Armed with a degree in archaeology, a quick wit and a hunger for adventure, Gates investigates the latest developments in each unsolved legend before embarking on a fully immersive exploration.

To separate fact from fiction, Gates inserts himself in different cultures to understand the world as they do. Whether he’s trekking through Fiji in search of Amelia Earhart’s remains or diving the deep seas of Panama to locate Captain Morgan’s pirate ship, Gates’ authentic roughshod adventures lead him one step closer to finding the truth. “Expedition Unknown” is comprised of 11 hour-long episodes plus the two-hour premiere.

“I’ve traveled to nearly 100 countries, but still feel like I haven’t scratched the surface of what’s out there to explore,” says Gates. “There is such a deep well of fascinating and mystifying stories in the world, and each one connects so uniquely to different cultures. I’m driven by curiosity – and I’m on a mission to find answers.”

In the two-hour series premiere, Josh Gates embarks on an expedition to investigate what might be the most iconic unsolved event in the world – the disappearance of Amelia Earhart during her attempt to circumnavigate the globe in 1937. Several incredible new leads in the story take Gates on an adventure through aviation history and remote areas of the world. These clues might finally lead to answers behind the greatest cold case in history.

Gates begins his expedition in Papua New Guinea, the location where Amelia Earhart’s plane last took off from before disappearing. Connecting with a remote tribe, Gates embarks on an arduous trek through the dense jungle to explore potential pieces of evidence.

Next, Gates heads to Fiji and turns his focus to the latest and most shocking piece of evidence to date. Noted aviation historian Ric Gillespie, the Executive Director of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), has confirmed a piece of aluminum that washed up on the remote island of Nikumaroro in 1991 may, in fact, be a unique piece of sheeting installed on Earhart’s plane before her ill-fated flight.

Gates is intrigued to learn more about the human bones found on Nikumaroro more than 50 years ago. They were shipped to Fiji for safekeeping, but vanished upon arrival. In light of the recent findings, Gates heads to Suva, Fiji to launch a hunt for the lost bones – a crucial element that could finally put this mystery to rest. Clues lead him from the island’s archives to a traditional village in the distant jungles where he links up with John Grey – a Fijian who, in 1968, discovered a mysterious skull beneath his childhood home.

Gates is shocked to learn that not only has the skull has gone missing, but authorities never conducted a proper search for other remains in the area. Securing permission to conduct an investigation, Gates personally uncovers what appear to be human remains.

Could they possibly be the long-lost bones of Amelia Earhart? Potentially groundbreaking answers await, as the bones currently undergo scientific analysis.
