HISTORY delves deep into the mysteries of the universe with a brand new series of programmes during Mystery Season. Step into the unknown as HISTORY explores stories that have mystified mankind for centuries.


In Search Of With Zachary Quinto explores and investigates the most iconic mysteries and legends of all time. Could the Loch Ness Monster really exist in some form? Are UFOs actually visiting Earth? Can the Ark of the Covenant ever be found? To find out, Zachary travels the globe, searching for clues with some of the world’s top experts. In the end, he attempts to reveal brand-new theories and evidence which could completely change our thinking on these enigmatic topics.

Step into The UnXplained with HISTORY, and explore 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 features compelling contributions from scientists, historians, witnesses and experiencers, each seeking to shed light on how the seemingly impossible can happen. 

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, continued mass sightings in the USA – these are just a few of the strange stories that will be investigated.

Rick, Marty and the Oak Island team are back on Oak Island for the biggest season yet. The team are bringing with them more determination, resources and technology than ever in their quest to solve the 224-year old treasure mystery. After seismic testing conducted at the end of last season revealed a possible sunken ship buried in the triangle-shaped swamp, the team will use sonic core drilling, strategic dives and finally a historic big dig to find out what could be buried below. Now fully partnered with fellow land owner Tom Nolan, son of the late Fred Nolan, Rick, Marty and Craig Tester will have unprecedented access to areas of the island that they hope will yield answers…and treasure.

After 224 years, the Oak Island mystery now has the greatest chance ever of finally being solved.
