: : : Searching for Lost Worlds

Story

Journey into lush jungle foliage, up fog-bathed mountains, under flaming desert sands, back in time. How would it feel to be the first one, to be a bold explorer, to make a one-of-a-kind discovery? Return to the golden age of exploration as five men set out into the world to make their names. This exciting five-episode Discovery Channel series will take you to South Africa, the Gobi Desert, the Andes Mountains, Egypt's Valley of the Kings, and the islands of Crete and Santorini to discover the missing link in human evolution, the bones of new dinosaur species, the lost city of the Inca, the undisturbed tomb of King Tutankhamun, and the lost civilization of the Minoans.

Searching for Lost Worlds captures the excitement, heartbreak, persistence, and most of all the glory these historic discoverers experienced as they followed their dreams. The stories are told chronologically with interviews, exquisite and extremely rare archival footage, astonishing photographs, and dramatic reenactments that make the experiences of these sometimes eccentric men come to life again. These videos will enthrall anyone who has dreamed of making an important discovery or of travelling to exotic destinations. They are entertaining and easy to follow without skimping on details or shying away from controversies. Don't miss this opportunity to see remarkable 1920's film footage of Mongolia, panoramic views of remote Incan cities and graceful, vividly-colored Minoan frescoes. --Tara Chace
