Thousands of years ago, a special, genetically advanced race of beings came to Earth. They were seen as Gods by primitive man and worshipped. They set themselves apart, and yet some mated with humans and created a special race. When these watchers departed, this hybrid species remained and taught mankind. Civilization emerged with writing, art, science, mathematics, geometry, engineering, architecture, and more and spread around the globe.
In the 1930s an entire nation was brainwashed. It was manipulated by masters of propaganda and the arcane arts. The result was the deaths of millions of people. The men behind this massive scheme were members of the most evil and vile political party ever to have existed. We know them as the Nazis. Their purpose was to bring about the rise of a so-called Aryan race, a race that would rule the world for 1,000 years. This would be their Third Reich.
We are all familiar with angels. In churches, we see them in stained-glass windows, sculpted as statues, and painted on altarpieces. We find them on greeting cards, on the tops of Christmas trees, and we even dress up children to look like them. Indeed, in our imagination they look positively human, with the exception that, unlike us, they have wings. Is any of this true, and if it is, might "angel" simply be a name for an extraterrestrial?
In 1561 the skies above Nuremberg, Germany, were lit up by an incredible sight. Thousands of people witnessed what they called a battle in the sky.

Around the world, and throughout time, thousands of people have witnessed the most extraordinary UFO phenomenon.
The Holy Grail is inextricably linked with the mysterious family known to the ruling elite as the Merovingian Dynasty - the strange moniker used in The Da Vinci Code, The Matrix, and others due to the undeniable power it holds. These Merovingians are said to be a dynasty of priest-kings with magical powers - but how do they come upon these powers? Some say they are descendants of God himself via his son, Jesus, and Jesus' wife, Mary Magdalene.
The Nazi party was obsessed with the occult. They scoured the globe in search of mysterious forces that would enable them to build their 1,000 year Reich. From the Holy Grail to the lance that pierced the side of Christ, from Tibet to the Antarctic, no region or mythological device was ignored. In fact, they turned the planet inside out looking for something ancient. Something the Nazi elite called "the most powerful weapon" - a weapon that would instill such awe, that it would cause the entire world to surrender overnight.

We are told the moon has been here since before the dawn of man and is either a part of the Earth itself or a vagabond captured by our world eons ago. But is this true? There are many theories for the existence of the moon, but all have been proven wrong. The moon is far older than previously acknowledged by science, quite possibly older than the Earth or the sun. Our moon is not a solid object; it is indeed hollow and is the only moon in the solar system that has a stationary, near-perfect circular orbit.
We live in a world where people feel escape is their only alternative. Housewives who feel they are overwhelmed with raising children, workers who feel they are powerless and cannot get ahead, people feeling trapped, paralyzed, and unbalanced in their daily lives.

In the early years of the 20th century, Carl Jung (at one time Sigmund Freud's favorite pupil) developed his own system of depth psychology. He was particularly interested in dream analysis and the light they threw upon what was happening in the subconscious levels of his patients' minds. Jung invented the phrase 'archetype of the collective unconscious' to describe his findings, and saw parallels between his work on the psyche and alchemy. In this program, we explore his fascinating discoveries.
There have been many evil men in the history of the world including serial killers, rapists, and mass murderers - but none of them as extreme and as monstrous as Adolf Hitler. He dominated the hearts and minds of the German nation and catapulted them into infamous world history. When Hitler rallied the nation, his oratory was so spellbinding and powerful that many claimed he was possessed. When he lifted the spear of destiny, he knew that he held the course of human history in his hands.
In this program, Adrian Gilbert delves deeper than ever in order to penetrate the mystery of medieval alchemy. Going beyond psychology, he explores how the alchemists used diagrams and traditional nomenclatures to discuss ideas that, had they been expressed openly at the time, would have invited persecution, and maybe even burning at the stake. These ideas of self-transformation throw light on the work of such influential, modern teachers as G.I. Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky.
