Cleopatra's Lost Tomb Season 15, Episode 3 May 17, 2016 Paid

Join Dr. Kathleen Martinez, criminal lawyer turned maverick archaeologist, as she searches for Cleopatra's lost tomb. Very little evidence remains of Egypt's last queen, but Kathleen’s radical new theory about the real Cleopatra has led her to look where no one else has dared -- and her hunch is paying off as she stuns the archaeological establishment with her discoveries of incredible artifacts, a network of mysterious tunnels, and even a vast city of the dead dated to the time of the Queen and her Ptolemaic dynasty. Now Kathleen has made her biggest breakthrough so far: a 35-meter deep underground shaft that, according to the experts, has all the hallmarks of a royal burial shaft. Could Kathleen be closing in on Cleopatra's final resting place?

The Alcatraz Escape Season 15, Episode 2 Mar 29, 2016 Paid

On June 11, 1962, bank robbers, Frank Morris and Clarence and John Anglin, launched a patchwork, raincoat raft into the frigid waters of San Francisco Bay surrounding Alcatraz Prison. The men disappeared, leaving behind a cold case that has mystified law enforcement for over half a century. Now, three Dutch scientists have used 3D modelling technology to show that it may have been possible for the men to have survived. Putting their theory to the test, the Dutchmen are recreating the daring escape as closely to the original as possible, right down to launching their own raincoat raft into the bay. Will they make it through the treacherous waters to safety or be swept out to sea? And can they prove once and for all what happened to the escapees?

Vampire Legend Season 15, Episode 1 Oct 27, 2015 Paid

Bram Stoker penned his gothic horror "Dracula" in 1887 and popularized the modern vampire myth — but evidence now points to those myths originating in England, not Eastern Europe as many believe. Unexplained burials, identified as 'deviant' and 'cursed' by their contemporaries, were detailed in Stoker's original research notes and drafts, discovered by his great-grandson in the family archive. Oxford professor John Blair follows clues in medieval burials in England that may offer insight into physiological reasons for the formation of the myths. The cases hint at a deeply-held belief that the dead could rise and bring fear to the living…a belief that predates the Eastern European lore and is forcing a reexamination of the modern vampire legend.
