Is it possible that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago, bringing with them technology that drastically affected the course of history and our own development? Originally presented in Erich von Daniken's 1968 bestseller 'Chariots of the Gods', the theory of 'ancient aliens' rocked our accepted notions of mankind's natural evolution. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru and Indian texts that describe the 'flying machines of the gods' are just a few of the odd archaeological artefacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors. Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, "Ancient Aliens" launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, concentrating on discoveries from the past 30 years including unusual DNA findings that cast new light on man's evolution and newly decoded artefacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.
Straight & fascinating
- Ancient Aliens: Series 1 review by RL
No nonsense factual documentary, with all the practical on-location & graphic content you expect from The History Channel. It makes no assertions, but the facts & demonstrations leave you to decide. This is not sci-fi, but actual proof, short of finding a flying saucer. Highly fascinating.
