As the History Channel begins the third season of this highly-rated show (both in terms of popularity and critical praise), the second season of 'Digging for the Truth' is becoming available. Host Josh Bernstein dons his hat (named Henry, and no, it is not a fedora) for yet more adventures reminiscent of Indiana Jones. Bernstein, president and CEO of the Boulder Outdoor Survival School, is also a broadly educated and inquisitive person well suited for the pursuit of things that require as much on the intellectual side as they do on the physical. One of the things that Bernstein wrote in a companion book for the first two series seasons (also going by the name 'Digging for the Truth' - highly recommended!) is that he doesn't want to stand in the way of the adventures, but rather let viewers come as close to the experiences as they can through him. Even so, we get a good dose of Bernstein, as he reacts to the various challenges (and sometimes dangers) with aplomb and good humour.

Like the second film in the Indiana Jones series, this second season also begins with a show entitled 'The Real Temple of Doom', in which Bernstein and his crew travel to the Amazon region in search of the Chavin. Other episodes in this season include a look back at the real Cleopatra (Egypt is always a favourite, having featured in the first season around pyramids), American adventures such as the lost Roanoke colony, the Viking landings (not on Mars, but in North America), and American pyramids. Back in the 'old world' episodes feature a look at Stonehenge, Troy, the legendary Queen of Sheba, and an episode tapping into the interest in the Da Vinci Code mysteries, trying to see if the historical royal family of the Merovingians in France were genetically related to people in the Middle East.

This is the second series of investigations worldwide by Josh Bernstein for the History Channel. He has carried out in-depth on-site researches into biblical locations and events, rulers from ancient history, early explorers,ancient tribes, enduring myths and legends looking for evidence which stands up to scrutiny. In addition to his physical insertion into sometimes remote and arduous locations, he enlists the help and advice of local historical, archaeological and earth science experts which enrich his findings with special insights and theories to illustrate facets of his enquiry. The camerawork is of very high quality and the commentary by Josh is very "nuggetty" and revealing of local conditions.. He has contacts with scholars highly regarded in their home locations.. Refreshingly different from the main TV channels' style of presentation.

HASH(0x925265e8) out of 5 stars Another phenomenal season 17 Mar. 2007
By Christopher M. Fulton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you were pleased with the first season of DftT, you will be equally if not more impressed by season two. Learning history in school was never this much fun. You also get to learn a basic survival tool...he was bitten by several fire ants and almost died. He therefore explains the proper things to do if this were to happen to you.

Like season one, you get the beautiful scenery, the in-depth investigation, and all the angles that make this one of the best documentary shows on TV. So grab the popcorn and the soda, turn off the lights, and relax with a good show.

HASH(0x9327b978) out of 5 stars Excellent Series and Host 22 May 2009
By C. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Bernstein is great as the host of Digging for the Truth. He shows enthusiasm and is able to make what may seem mundane interesting. While the 2nd season was not quite as good, the series is reminiscent of the old In Search Of... series with Leonard Nimoy. I can heartily recommend these DVD's for those interested in archeology, sociology, or history.

I really enjoyed this series on the History Channel and wish it still aired with host Josh Bernstein, but alas, it does not, so I have purchased both seasons 1 & 2 on DVD. I love going back and watching favorite episodes. Great boxed set!

When I watch this #2 series, as I did the the #1 series, I feel like I am seeing parts of the world, that nobody has ever seen, and learning things that are new, eventhough its about history, and times that are very old!
Josh Bernstein is as beautiful as ever, and the perfect host for this wonderful series! I could watch Josh Bernstein all day, Wow!

I also admire, the behind the scenes people, who help make this show, a great success, and the camera man is great! I love all the amazing history experts, and specialists who explain their knowledge of all these wonderful things! I loved the ROANOKE LOST COLONY, and the one about CLEOPATRA, and TROY, and the one about SODOM & GOMORRAH, and I loved the one about the QUEEN OF SHEBA! I really enjoyed this series, and I highly recommend it! I loved it!

( There is another episode that is not in this series, and that is the DIGGIN FOR THE TRUTH: SEARCH FOR KING DAVID, I ordered it from the HISTORY CHANNEL/PBS, I also recommend getting this single episode, to add to your collection, it was very interesting!
