BERMUDA TRIANGLE: INTO CURSED WATERS (SEASON 2)

Tuesdays 10 EP

Bermuda Triangle: Into Cursed Waters follows a team of passionate deep-sea wreck divers and historians investigating the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle and why hundreds of ships and planes have vanished without a trace. Each week is a detective hunt as the team follows clues and dives into mystery wrecks hoping to identify them and close the case on why they disappeared. In 2022, the team made international headlines when it found a large piece of debris from the Space Shuttle Challenger — a disaster that happened outside the Bermuda Triangle. They’ve now set their sights on a new set of wreck targets that they hope will solve some of the biggest, deepest, most perplexing mysteries of the missing in these dreaded waters.

UNBELIEVABLE WITH DAN AYKROYD

Fridays 10 EP 

Starring Dan Aykroyd, UnBelievable is the wildly entertaining and smart series that digs up the weirdest people, places, objects, and events in human history. Each 60-minute episode features multiple stories — think UnXplained for bizarre wonders. Take cover from Boston’s Great Molasses Flood of 1919, where a 2 million gallon tidal wave of syrup demolished a neighbourhood. Squirm to the true history of the tonsil guillotine (exactly what it sounds like) which people in the 1800s used for self-administered tonsillectomies. And marvel at FDR’s batty plan to secretly bomb Japan in World War II with — what else? — bats.

SWAMP PEOPLE (SEASON 15)

Thursdays 9 EP

In the farthest corner of Louisiana lies the nation’s largest swamp — a hidden world where nature rules and man fights back. The Cajuns that live in this forbidding environment follow traditions dating back 300 hundred years, to the earliest pioneers. They are Swamp People, inheritors of a tradition of self-reliance and fierce independence that makes them true American originals. HISTORY follows these swampers through the most important time of their year — the 30-day alligator hunting season. This is a story of the American spirit – the lost art of doing things the right way and the fierce desire to preserve a dying way of life from the modern world. 

761st TANK BATTALION: THE ORIGINAL BLACK PANTHERS

Saturday 9 EP, starting Feb. 10

This is the powerful story of the first all-Black tank unit to serve in combat in US military history. Under General George Patten’s command, the 761st battalion fought heroically throughout World War II and was the furthest east of all US troops in the European theatre of war when hostilities ceased in 1945. Their valour went unrecognized for decades until veterans of the battalion and their allies saw that they received the honour and recognition they deserved. Executive Produced by Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman, this documentary shines a light on these forgotten heroes and the contemporary heroes who helped uncover their story.

HARLEM HELLFIGHTERS

The documentary also highlights how the predominately African American military unit, later known as the “Harlem Hellfighters,” achieved the extraordinary in the face of near-impossible odds, overcoming both the gruelling realities of modern war against the Germans and racism, segregation, and prejudice at home in the United States.

ANCIENT ALIENS

Ancient Aliens examines 75 million years of the most credible alien evidence here on Earth, from the age of the dinosaurs to ancient Egypt, to the skies over the western desert in the present-day US. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, an asphalt-like substance in an Egyptian pyramid made from the remains of unidentified creatures, and continued mass sightings in the USA — these are just a few of the strange stories that will be investigated.
