Mysteries of our Ancient Past documentary

icon-mk-osiris
There aren't a lot of documentaries exploring controversial evidence about our ancient past in Britain nowadays (readers can come to their own conclusions about why that is so). The United States does have the interesting 'Ancient Aliens' series but that it is very whizz-bang and, not surprisingly, very preoccupied about evidence of alien visitations. In fact, they see aliens in so many pieces of controversial evidence that it becomes ludicrous at times, but there's no doubt it can be fun to watch and there are some fascinating nuggets in many of the episodes.

Here is a more measured documentary from Europe, exploring strange evidence about our ancient past. It includes well-known writers in the field such as Colin Wilson, Eric Bauval and Christopher Dunn. I very much enjoyed the documentary and was happy with a lot of its content, apart from the last fifteen minutes when it strayed into the theory of crust displacement. Although I don't feel that crust displacement is impossible, I think other, more established natural events can explain what happened at the end of our last ice age. For example, I am particularly convinced that our planet was bombarded by a shower of meteorites, the Younger Dryas Impact event, which itself could have been caused by the strange Planet X or Nibiru entering our inner solar system again as part of its 17,000 year orbit.



If I find more interesting documentaries, I'll post them up here. It can be very tedious, trawling through youtube, looking for decent documentaries, and so I'll try and act as a filter, posting those programmes I find that I think are worth watching.
