Science Channel, the network that dares to question everything, explores the science behind the faith in a four-part special event Biblical Conspiracies. The greatest archeological finds and some of the most beloved icons of the Judeo-Christian religions are examined and age-old secrets explored. Could two twisted nails found in the tomb of the man who sent Jesus to the cross be the very same from the True Cross? Does a recently translated 6th century manuscript tell the true story of Jesus’ marriage to Mary Magdalene? And could a forgotten sculpture made by Michelangelo bring to light strange and long-buried religious practices from the time of Christ? With the aid of cutting edge technology, we return to the crumbling tombs, palaces and ruins of the Holy Land, in search of ancient conspiracies hidden away for two thousand years and Science Channel will take us through all the ground-breaking mysteries behind the myths.

The story of the German Resistance is one that is rarely heard, but the bravery of the conspirators, despite their lack of success in stopping Hitler in his tracks, is nothing short of heroic. In 1944, Operation Valkyrie and Colonel Count Claus von Stauffenberg got within striking distance of assassinating the Fuhrer. This programme, one of three focussing on the career of Adolf Hitler, examines the attempted July Bomb Plot, ahead of the release of the film Valkyrie (starring Tom Cruise) later this year.
The world watched in horror as the events of September 11, 2001 unfolded. No stone has been left unturned in the painstaking process of piecing together what happened on that fateful day. The government's official version of events has been consistent: Hijackers commandeered commercial jetliners in a highly coordinated terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon that took the lives of some 3,000 Americans. Theories abound contradicting the official version of events: Did the Twin Towers really collapse from the fires, or did explosives inside cause the buildings to implode? Was the Pentagon hit by a missile, and not a commercial airliner? And why do so many people believe theories like these?
