The UnXplained: Series 1
The UnXplained will tackle subjects that have mystified mankind for centuries, from mysterious structures and cursed ancient cities to extraterrestrial sightings and bizarre rituals. The series will also feature contributions from top scientists, historians, engineers and researchers – each seeking to shed light on how the seemingly impossible can happen.
Part 1: Evil Places
Deadly forests. Haunted houses. Mountains where visitors never return alive. Are there such things as “evil places”? Places where bad things seem to repeatedly — and inexplicably — happen? And if so, is it possible that these locations are imbued with dark energy that is currently beyond our understanding?
Part 2: Mysterious Structures
For centuries, archaeologists have tried to unravel the mysteries of how – and why – certain incredible structures like the Great Pyramid at Giza, the staircase at Loretto Chapel, and Coral Castle were built. Will we ever find the answers? Or, might these structures have been intentionally constructed to perpetually mystify us?
Part 3: Strange Creatures
Millions of people around the world claim to have had an encounter with a creature unlike any recognized by mainstream science.
Part 4: Unnatural Nature
Many mysteries of planet Earth are far from understood. How was Devil’s Tower formed? Or why do some people get struck by lightning multiple times?
Part 5: Bizarre Rituals
Ancient practices such as prayer, blood sports, voodoo, and exorcism are often thought to be relics of bygone superstition.
Part 6: Life Beyond Death
Perhaps the greatest unexplained mystery of all is: what happens to us after we die? Perhaps clues to the answer lie in unusual cases of near-death experience
Part 7: Mysteries of the Mind
Even after centuries of study, the human mind remains as inscrutable as ever. Could the quintessential human machine, the brain, be even more powerful than we realize?
Part 8: Incredible Survivors
How do some people live through the impossible? Whether it’s plane crashes, bearing freezing temperatures, or performing superhuman feats while in danger?
