The existence of Churchill's Bunker is no secret, but that there was an entire subterranean city, built to keep the British government running, is only now being revealed. Very little of this covert network, which also sheltered American General Dwight Eisenhower, has ever been revealed to the public. Now this lost world is brought back to life with cutting-edge computer graphic technology -- the tunnels beneath the heart of London's great buildings; the underground command center from where the Battle of Britain was coordinated; the deep level, ultra-secure chambers that could withstand the most deadly weapons in the Nazi arsenal.

Jesus' Jerusalem Lost Worlds, Season 1 44:34 2006-08-21  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     Tens of thousands travel yearly to Jerusalem to visit where Jesus walked, preached, suffered, was crucified, and buried. But since his death, the city has been destroyed and rebuilt more than 20 times. Our experts follow the evidence to reveal the city that Jesus would have visited. They rebuild Herod's Temple Mount -- in its time the largest man-made structure. They explain the manipulation of light and stone that created the Holy Sanctuary -- said to "sparkle like a snow-capped mountain in the sun." They explore the network of aqueducts, pipes, tunnels, and pools that kept this desert city from thirst and enabled it to handle an influx of pilgrims that routinely swelled its population from 30,000 to 300,000. They seek the places where Jesus performed miracles. And they map his final hours: including the real route of the "Via Dolorosa" -- the path that led to his place of execution. With new research and CGI, we'll glimpse a world hidden for more than 20 centuries. Details
Hitler's Supercity Lost Worlds, Season 1 45:09 2006-08-14  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     Hitler caused more death and destruction than anyone else in history. But he also planned to build on a massive scale and place a new Germany on a par with ancient Greece and Rome. Our investigators piece together a picture of how Hitler wanted Germany to look from the ruins of what was built and from plans of his architect Albert Speer. In Nuremberg, we recreate the Zeppelin Tribune: where 60,000 people could overlook a parade ground. We reveal the real purpose of the stadium Speer planned to hold the Olympic Games -- with seating for 405,000 people. And we rebuild, with computer-generated images based on Speer's plans, the monuments Hitler planned for himself: the Triumphal Arch -- twice the height, and four times the width of Paris's Arc de Triomphe -- and the People's Hall -- a structure so big the Eiffel Tower could fit inside it. Monstrous, intimidating, built on slave labor -- this is the Lost World we'd now inhabit if WWII had gone differently. Details
Secret Cities of the A-Bomb Lost Worlds, Season 1 45:09 2006-08-07  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     In 1939, a group of scientists--Albert Einstein among them -- warned FDR of the possibility that Hitler's Germany might be close to producing an atomic bomb. Roosevelt issued an order -- the US had to be the first to develop an atomic bomb and within three years they were well on their way to creating a hidden world of secret cities and classified nuclear facilities. Six decades later, we return to the once-classified sites where the course of history was decided. In top secret cities and nuclear facilities, we uncover and rebuild this lost world in three top-secret cities in isolated parts of Tennessee, New Mexico, and Washington State. This was to be the most costly and labor-intensive engineering program ever undertaken. Using classified material, eyewitness testimony, and cutting-edge graphic technology, we recreate the secret world of the Manhattan Project. Details

     In the 5th century BC, one man leads his city to greatness and paves the way for western civilization. The city is Athens and Pericles is not a king or prince, but an elected man. He will mastermind the most costly and ambitious construction campaign undertaken in the western world -- creating a model city of temples, houses, market places, civic buildings, and a highly innovative sanitation system. But Pericles' decision to raid the Greek treasury and take the money set aside to defend all the city states will lead to the downfall of Athens and Pericles himself. It took 30 years to build, but it was brought down in one generation by war and disease. Now, 2,500 years later we restore Athens to its former glory -- the first senate house, the terrifying power of the Greek navy, and one of the world's most advanced water systems. We also reveal the magnificence of the Parthenon -- a building often hailed as the most perfect building ever completed. Details
