Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 19h25
Genre: Documentary Series, History


Throughout history certain civilizations, events and objects have fascinated and inspired us to dig deeper, climb higher and go further on our endless quest to be the first to finally uncover the truth.

In this 12-part series we look at some of the most iconic and enduring mysteries the world has known.

We go back to the beginning to see how myths passed down through time have become some of the greatest modern mysteries.

If we've learned anything, it's that where there is mystery there will always be 'Truthseekers', people that will stop at nothing to uncover the truth behind myths and legends.

In the series premiere, "The Great Pyramid": The Great Pyramid at Giza is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World that still stands.

For 38 of the last 45 centuries, it was the tallest building on Earth with an estimated 2.3-million blocks making up the pyramid.

Since it is widely agreed that it was completed in between 20 and 30 years, that means that one of those blocks was placed every six minutes, night and day, for something like 25 years.

Though archaeologists have been poring over this site for more than 200 years, we still do not really know how the ancient Egyptians built the Great Pyramid, what it was for, or what lies beneath its blocks today.

Britain's Got Talent 16

The UK's most-loved variety talent show returns to our screens for its 16th season.

The talent spectacular is bigger and better than ever before, as this year sees more jaw-dropping acts, as well as more golden buzzer moments than any season yet.

Brand new judge Bruno Tonioli joins the panel alongside Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.

Once again, the incomparable duo Ant and Dec will be hosting, both on stage and from the wings as they get ready to cheer and console the acts brave enough to perform in front of thousands.

With auditions held in both London and Manchester for the first time since before the pandemic, the calibre of talent this year is the best the competition has ever seen.

Temptation Island 5

Temptation Island follows four dating couples at a pivotal time in their relationship, where they must mutually decide if they are ready to commit to one another for the rest of their lives - or should go their separate ways.

Together, the couples travel to the tropical paradise of Maui, Hawaii, where they join 24 eligible men and women.

There, they live the "single life," in a test that is meant to help answer their most difficult questions about their relationship.

Now the show is back for a fifth season, with four new couples and 24 new singles.

The couples are here to learn if their relationships are built to last. The singles are here in search of love.

For one tempestuous, tantalising, and tempting month, the couples will live apart; the men will live with 12 single women, and the women will live with 12 single men.

The stakes are high. Anything could happen.
