Footprints of Civilization

Modern cultures owe a great deal to the ancient civilisations that developed over millions of years of human evolution.

We draw much more from their legacy than we generally realise.

The Inca, Mesopotamian, Persian, Greek, Chinese, Egyptian, Roman and Indus civilisations all still exert deep influences.

In this series we will explore how, and to what extent these ancient civilisations have contributed to our world.

Architecture, Science, Society, Communication, Agriculture, Art & Culture, Exploration and The Art of War are the themes.

What remains of these ancient civilisations? What still persists today?

What did our predecessors invent, create or build in terms of science, communication, economics, politics and social relations?

What have been the universal influences that came from different cultures and civilisations?

We will discover these influences, and explore how they are still at work today in modern cultures all over the world.

This series will dig deep, exploring discoveries that changed the course of history, and are still very much in use in contemporary society.

In the series premiere, "Architecture": A look at the nature of the first man-made buildings and the predecessors of what we call skyscrapers, in a union of the past and present of architecture.

TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Docu-Reality, Paranormal

Destination Fear 4

Paranormal explorers Dakota Laden, Chelsea Laden, Tanner Wiseman and Alex Schroeder level up their fear experiment in their darkest, most terrifying road trip yet.

The fear-chasing foursome embrace the darkness more than ever before - physically, emotionally and psychologically - as they push the boundaries of fear and daringly spend the night inside America's most sinister and haunted locations.

After experiencing hauntings in Europe last season, the likes of which they've never seen at home, Dakota is now taking things to an even darker level - literally.

Not only is he challenging the team with darker hauntings and locations, but he shocks them with the most disturbing experiment yet: removing flashlights from their armour and forcing them to blindly face the shadows of the night in true darkness.

It's the first of many twisted and unnerving new experiments that will test their paranormal theories from the most uncomfortable of situations.

This season's eight hour-long episodes and latest tour de terror take Dakota, Chelsea, Alex and Tanner to the infamous Winchester Mystery House, the "swear they'd never return" Ashmore Estate, a mysteriously deserted Tennessee hospital, a haunted abandoned junior high school, the sprawling Cresson Sanatorium and Prison and more.

In the Season 4 premiere, "Cresson Sanatorium, Part One": The season opens with a one-two punch: the massive Cresson Sanatorium in rural Cresson, Pennsylvania, the largest location the team has ever explored.

A trifecta of terror, the decaying 20-building property was once a sanatorium, mental hospital and prison, marked by death in every corner.

In a place this large, Dakota, Chelsea, Tanner and Alex will each have to explore their own building... alone and, in their most terrifying experiment, without flashlights.

But when they encounter an entity that's known to mimic the voices and sounds of people exploring the building, the crew is left shaken beyond belief.
