Who Killed John Wayne?
1 x 1 hour
In 1953, the year before production started on Wayne’s film The Conqueror, the US Govt had tested 11 nuclear weapons at Yucca Flats in Nevada – including two exceptionally “dirty” above ground tests with high degrees of fallout, exactly where The Conqueror would be shot. After thirteen weeks of breathing in the dust and drinking from local streams, the consequences for John Wayne and many dozens of members of the crew were terrifying, and devastating. This is the remarkable, true story of how the Pentagon might well have killed one of America’s greatest stars.
Return to Abydos
Scripted feature film
This film dramatizes the remarkable true story of Dorothy Eady, a young girl from wartime London who, ever since a near death experience in her childhood, believed she was the lover of Pharaoh Seti l, in a former life. It was a conviction that led her to live her adult life in Egypt, in the Temple of Abydos, where she was able to assist the archaeologists with their discoveries, given her ‘prior knowledge’ of the site. Dorothy became a beloved figure in Egypt, teaching the local children english , and escorting the likes of Churchill and President Kennedy around the Temple. She described her bizarre story.
The Forbidden Archaeologist
A feature-length documentary film
A documentary film about one man’s struggle to make us re-think our understanding of human origins, identity and destiny. Over the past two centuries researchers have found bones and artifacts showing that civilized communities existed on earth millions of years ago. But the scientific establishment has suppressed, ignored and dismissed these remarkable facts. Why? Because they contradict the accepted academic and historical view of human origins, which says that humans like ourselves within the last 100,000 years. The man behind the controversy is the author and researcher Michael A. Cremo, who, since 1984, alongside his longtime collaborator Richard L. Thompson, has investigated the finds, lectured, debated and traveled the world crusading to have these discoveries given the consideration and importance that he passionately believes they deserve. A film about one quiet man’s relentless crusade against the odds which challenges the very core of our existence.
6 x 1 hours
Dozens of body parts, chalices, shrouds, dusty boxes and shreds of wood are housed in churches, castles and museums across the world claiming to be authentic Holy Relics of Christianity. From the severed head of John the Baptist, the skeleton of St Peter, and the heart and body of Mary Magdalene, to pieces of the True Cross the blood of Christ, the tongue of St Anthony, and even the milk from the Breast of The Virgin Mary. In many cases they have been venerated by millions of devotees for centuries, but how authentic are they, and just how ‘true’ is their provenance?
Two thirds of the world’s surface is submerged, and much of the world’s history lies hidden beneath the water. DARK WATER is major new series following the adventures of a team of cave divers who pride themselves on exploring some of the most inaccessible, dangerous and deepest places on the planet.
From sacred Mayan cenotes (wells) in Mexico and flooded Temples in Jordan, to deep cave structures in Colorado. And from labyrinthine sink holes in the Amazon and Volcanic lakes in Greenland to flooded mines in Arizona. They are expert technical divers and cavers. The harder, the more extreme the better.
The Secret Nazis
6 x 1 hours
From Himmler’s quest for the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant, to Ghost Rockets, UFO’s, occult ceremonies and hidden Nazi treasures. A fascinating look at what Hitler’s secret scientific and development teams were up to, much of which was appropriated by the Allies, especially the US, after the War.
The Jesus Conspiracy
6 x 1 hours
A controversial series investigating the question as to whether the story of Jesus’ life was manufactured, and if so how, and why? Was there really one man called Jesus or was he an amalgam of different healers, revolutionaries and would-be Messiahs from the time? Was he married? Was there a crucifixion? Did he come back from the dead or was there trickery involved? Was his message distorted by the emerging Church in Rome, and if so, why?
Did he travel to foreign lands and if so where and what did he do? We examine the evidence that covers all this territory and talk to the experts who have sought to shed light on the real historical Yeshua Ben Joseph. From the ‘Desposyni’ lineage in Europe, to the ‘Jesus Papers’ found in Jerusalem; and from the ‘bloodline’ scrolls taken to Saint Sulpice in Paris, to the heretical symbolism in paintings and secrets held within the Church in Rome.
What Happens when we die?
6 x 1 hours
A new series which examines the very latest research into the age old question that everyone wants answered. Is there life after death, and in what form? We talk to the leaders in the research to find answers. From NDE’s (near death experiences) to Mediums, EVP (electronic voice phenomena), Seances to the physical ‘apports’ of objects, orbs, and phenomena caught on tape and audio. From the Scole Experiment in the UK, to the ‘Bacci’ recordings in Italy, and the incredible work of Dr Ian Stephenson in the US, among others.
The Scole Experiment
2 x 1 hours
A dramatised documentary film which tells the remarkable true story of Alan & Diana Bennett, and Robin and Sandra Foy. Two middle aged couples living in Norfolk, UK, who had shared a lifetime’s interest in the paranormal and mediumship. In the mid-nineties, they set out on a major experiment, to try and find hard evidence that there is life after death. The events that took place over five years were so astounding that respected scientists, psychologists and physicists, who had been asked to observe, test and record what took place, all confirmed that some form of ‘paranormal manifestations’ had taken place.
In the field of Ghosts and Paranormal research, nothing like this had ever happened before. Several times jewels and even silver cutlery crashed down onto the table, handwriting, symbols, and messages appeared on unopened, factory sealed photographic film, and on one occasion, a 1940’s copy of the Daily Mirror newspaper fell onto the table with the paper still in its white, un-oxidized state. It remains the perhaps the most important, and yet almost unknown, work into paranormal contact yet made.
Can we Time Travel?
1 x 1 hour
Scientist Professor David Pares believes that we can, and he’s embarking on an ambitious experiment to prove it. After nearly two decades of painstaking research, Pares thinks that powerful solar flares can pierce through weakened around of our magnetosphere and ‘supercharge’ high altitude clouds, creating ‘mega electric’ storms which can, in turn, create time and space distortions for aircraft that are caught in them. It sounds the stuff of science fiction, but Pares says he is going to prove it. He is going to rig up a small, light aircraft with the very latest sensors, and repeatedly fly test flights over the Atlantic ocean, in the area known as the Bermuda Triangle, where many pilots have reported being ‘caught’ in electric storms and vortices, where their instruments malfunction, and they appear to ‘lose’ time.
The key, Pares says, is to time the test flights with known solar flare discharges and hope that they are able to break through the atmosphere and ‘super charge’ the columns of storm clouds. Pares believes that if we can learn more about this phenomena, and perhaps harness this immense energy, then it will forever revolutionize how we travel, on this planet, and to others.
