The Alaska Triangle

Channel: Travel Channel (DStv 179)
TX Time: 20h15
Genre: Documentary Series, Supernatural

The Alaska Triangle

Alaska is the most sparsely populated of all the states.

In a vast expanse of rugged wilderness, one area - known as "The Alaska Triangle" - has been home to so much unusual activity that it has struck fear across Alaska and the world.

More people disappear in this area than anywhere else in the United States, with countless sightings of strange creatures, impossible moving lights in the sky, unexplained phenomena and even malevolent ghosts.

Are lay lines and electromagnetic anomalies within the Triangle causing these bizarre events? Or is something more sinister at play?

From strange reports of military personnel seeing UFOs and missing aircrafts that have vanished without a trace, to sightings of fearful monsters and an underground alien base hidden inside a mountain, each episode seeks to unlock the paranormal mysteries hidden within this foreboding location.

From a cryptozoologist investigating the ape-like beast rumoured to be responsible for a string of disappearances, to locals' experiences of possible alien activity – what is the real reason for over 16,000 people vanishing in the rugged Alaskan wilderness?

Compelling stories and scientific evidence are investigated to try and uncover the truth behind the state's unexplained secrets.

In the series premiere, "The Secrets of Mount Hayes": An eyewitness shares startling video evidence of extraterrestrial activity in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Also, a UFO hunter flies over Alaska's highest mountain in search of a secret underground alien base.

Stacey Dooley Investigates: ISIS Brides

Stacey Dooley travels to Kurdish-controlled northern Syria to holding camps where she meets western women who left their countries to join the so-called Islamic State.

For now, the Kurds are containing these women. Some of them are still fervent IS supporters, while others say they just want to come home and face whatever consequences the courts decide.

Stacey also finds the camps filled with European children.

The Kurds who are in control of this part of Syria are still fighting Russia and Assad's forces to the south. They say the western powers should not expect the Kurds to be gaolers on their behalf indefinitely.

Panorama explores the question of what to do with the IS women and children left behind.

The Bachelor in Paradise 6

In the premiere episode of what promises to be another wild ride of Bachelor in Paradise, favourite members of Bachelor Nation begin their journey for another chance at finding love at a luxurious Mexico resort.

Host and keeper of the keys Chris Harrison is there to greet the nine hot men and 11 incredible women that are hoping to find true love on the beach like Chris and Krystal, Carly and Evan or Jade and Tanner, who found each other in previous seasons.

It doesn't take long for sparks to fly when Blake, who has already gotten to know a few of the women before arriving in Paradise, gets the first date card.

Both Hannah G. and Caelynn have high hopes of receiving that invitation but are extremely disappointed when he chooses another striking woman.

But that opens the door for two guys to spend time with one of the overlooked ladies. Which man will she choose?

Blake finds he has a lot to answer for and multiple women from his past to juggle. Blake's former girlfriend Kristina arrives in Paradise with her own agenda.

She asks Blake out, but will he rekindle his romance with Kristina or gravitate back to Caelynn, the scorned woman that has unfinished business with him - or take up with the beautiful Hannah G., who first caught his eye in Paradise?

Hannah Gadsby: Douglas

Hannah Gadsby returns for her second special and digs deep into the complexities of popularity, identity and her most unusual dog park encounter.

Hannah stopped the comedy world in its tracks with her genre bending show, Nanette.

Having given herself her very own tough act to follow, Gadsby decided to name her difficult second album after one of her dogs in the hopes he could inspire comedy obedience.

Did it work? Fortunately, you can make up your own mind because after taking her metaphorical muse off for a world tour of a walk she filmed the f*cker in Los Angeles.

Hannah Gadsby: Douglas is a grand tour of guffaw that takes you from the dog park to the High Renaissance and back into an unnamed box.

With one of comedy's most sparkling and surprising minds as your guide of honour, you can expect your expectations to be set and then met in the most unexpected ways.
