HISTORY HØJDEPUNKTER OKTOBER 2020
From Friday 30th October to Sunday the 1st November at 21:00
From executive producer Leonardo DiCaprio. At the time of his death, Ulysses S Grant was the most famous man in the world, and stood alongside the likes of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in the pantheon of American heroes. However, today Ulysses S Grant is largely forgotten, his rightful legacy tarnished by a fog of myth, rumour and falsehood. Grant tells the remarkable and quintessentially American story of a humble man who overcomes incredible obstacles, rises to the highest ranks of power, and saves the nation not once, but twice. With a seamless blend of dramatic scenes, expert commentary and beautifully enhanced archival imagery, this three-part miniseries uncovers the true legacy of the unlikely hero who led the nation during its greatest tests: the Civil War and Reconstruction.
UNIDENTIFIED: INSIDE AMERICA’S UFO INVESTIGATION
Tuesdays from 13th October at 22:15
Former Blink 182 star, Tom DeLonge returns to HISTORY for a brand new series of Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO investigation. Each episode follows a specific case of the modern Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) and follows the team of investigators including former military intelligence official and Special Agent In-Charge, Luis Elizondo, and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence and Intelligence, Chris Mellon. The team continue to divulge what the US government know about these bizarre aircraft, hear additional first-hand eyewitness accounts of UAP sightings from military and civilian personnel, and share insight and information about these aircraft to produce tangible evidence and build the most indisputable case for the existence and threat of UAP ever assembled. 2
THE UNXPLAINED WITH WILLIAM SHATNER
Wednesdays from 30th September at 22:00
From the producers of Ancient Aliens and The Curse of Oak Island comes The UnXplained, a one-hour, nonfiction series that explores the world’s most fascinating, strange and inexplicable mysteries. Hosted and executive produced by Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actor William Shatner (Star Trek, Boston Legal) each episode will feature compelling contributions from scientists, historians, witnesses and experiencers — each seeking to shed light on how the seemingly impossible actually can happen. From mysterious structures (like Florida’s Coral Castle) and so-called “evil” places (like the cursed “White City” of Honduras) to strange creatures and bizarre rituals, The UnXplained will explore subjects that have mystified mankind for centuries.
