    Crop Circles, Season 1 | Episode 2

    Across the English countryside, a decades-old mystery refuses to die. Are crop circles highly complex messages from the outer limits… or a man-made hoax of profound proportions? When two artists admitted in 1991 to creating hundreds of crop circles as a practical joke, it seemed the case was finally closed. But Instead, the circles started appearing more often - and in spectacularly intricate patterns. From balls of light caught on tape to baffling crop deformities, "croppies" come armed with a slew of evidence supporting their claim that the circles are the marks of UFOs or weird weather patterns. But skeptics have their own weapon - critical scrutiny - that they say proves the crop circle fields are nothing more than hogwash. Join believers, scientists, and crop circle makers for a cosmic debate.

    Zorro is one of the most recognizable heroes in popular legend. Tales of his double-life, his romancing and skill with a sword in defence of the helpless have become famous since his creation in the 20th century. But since first appearing as a fictional character in a series of books by American author, Johnston McCulley, and subsequently on film and television, scholars have debated if this fictional character was based on an actual historical figure - and if so, who? Was he a Mexican outlaw from California? Was he a Mexican version of Robin Hood? One fascinating new theory is that he may have been inspired by the real life trials of a 17th century Irishman living in Mexico in the 1640s. This show examines 17th century records from the Spanish Inquisition and explores how the life of a mysterious man from Catholic Ireland parallels the adventures of the fictional Zorro.

    The legend of Pope Joan has endured for centuries. Some medieval chronicles record that there once was a pope who was in fact a woman. She taught the liberal arts, and was well versed in a diversity of branches of knowledge. She wore the Holy robes for over two years before her deception was finally, and dramatically, revealed by giving birth in public in Rome. Her life was never doubted in the Middle Ages, and her story survived the Reformation to the 21st century. But could a woman really have become Bishop of Rome? Retracing her footsteps, and searching through the archives, we investigate the mystery of Pope Joan.

Those who choose to live outside the grid must adapt to a constant barrage of obstacles. They must find a means to overcome, or find themselves without the resources to endure. "Above the Grid" in Onion Creek, Washington, Doc and Jeanny Leverett depend on their garden to maintain a nutrient-rich diet. But after a black bear wreaks havoc on their plants, they are forced to find a new way to protect this crucial resource. "Beyond the Grid," in the Clearwater Mountains of Idaho, Bear Claw relies on his horses to travel the ridgelines and transport essential resources to camp. When his packhorse, Idahe, suffers from symptoms of equine arthritis, he must quickly adapt to find a new way to haul the supplies he desperately needs. "Below the Grid," in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, Joe Ray prefers to spend his time underground - and he is always searching for ways to expand his underground world. Today, Joe searches for a new cave to explore, in hopes of finding new caverns to use and resources to exploit. "Outside the Grid," on Beaver Island, Dan Burton must stockpile supplies everyday - and out here, Dan doesn't rely on a trip to the grocery store to provide for his family.

    Pope Joan, Season 2 | Episode 7

    The legend of Pope Joan has endured for centuries. Some medieval chronicles record that there once was a pope who was in fact a woman. She taught the liberal arts, and was well versed in a diversity of branches of knowledge. She wore the Holy robes for over two years before her deception was finally, and dramatically, revealed by giving birth in public in Rome. Her life was never doubted in the Middle Ages, and her story survived the Reformation to the 21st century. But could a woman really have become Bishop of Rome? Retracing her footsteps, and searching through the archives, we investigate the mystery of Pope Joan.

    Lawrence of Arabia, Season 2 | Episode 3

    Lawrence of Arabia, immortalised in his own epic book "Seven Pillars of Wisdom," is seen by some as the great military mind of World War I in the Middle East; and by others as one of the greatest liars and charlatans of the 20th century. In this programme we chart the arguments for and against Lawrence being the key player in the Great Arab Revolt of 1916-18, the start of the battle over territory that has plagued the western world and Arab states ever since. The Great Arab Revolt Project (GARP) in Southern Jordan is an archaeological investigation of a battlefield on a dramatic scale. We reinvestigate evidence laid out in the Seven Pillars of Wisdom and analyse archaeologists' discoveries that are restoring Lawrence's place in history as both a military genius, and an honourable man.

    Race For Gold, Season 1 | Episode 1

    ALASKA: the gold mining Mecca of North America. The season is short - only 100 days from the first thaw until the ground and rivers freeze up again. Determined men and women suffer through physical and emotional pain as they head out to remote locations to mine for gold. They will either strike it rich or go broke trying. Among those 'going for the gold' are: JOHN REEVES, one of the largest private landowners in the state. With gold prices soaring, John is taking a second look at the properties he owns. Helping him in hunt for treasure is an archive of old maps that will hopefully point him to where the gold is on his vast property. He brings in his city slicker kids to help him prospect and hopefully find the mother lode. Then there's DOUG BAKER. Part brilliant mining engineer/ part mad scientist, Doug leads his family mining operation, the down-and-dirty Mudminers. Doug is half a million dollars in the hole after a disastrous season last year. If this season isn't his best, it will be his last. Finally, we have CCR MINING, a company started by two young upstarts, CREIGHTON LAPP and CHUCK TILLIAN who are looking to join the big leagues. They have leased a mining claim that is supposedly "gold rich" from CLARK DURANT. CCR has high hopes for the season, but after a slow start and a series of miscommunications…

    Creation, Season 1 | Episode 1

    In this episode of "The Story of God," Morgan Freeman traverses the globe to ask: Where did we come from, and what happened "in the beginning?" Humanity's first question remains one of its most intensely debated. For many believers, it is impossible to understand who and what we are without first understanding how we got here...and who (or what) is behind it. Were we created in the image of God, or are we the result of a 13.8 million year old singularity? Morgan meets with papal representatives at the Vatican and Islamic scholars in Cairo. He visits Hindu philosophers in India and archeologists digging up the ancient Mayan past in the rain forests of Central America.
