Product description

Product Description

Is it possible that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago, bringing with them technology that drastically affected the course of history and man's own development? Presented in the 1968 bestselling book Chariots of the Gods, by Erich von Daniken, the theory of 'ancient aliens' rocked people's beliefs in mankind's progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the 'flying machines of the gods' were just a few of the odd archaeological artefacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors.

Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, Ancient Aliens launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on man's evolution and newly decoded artefacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.

HISTORY Special: Ancient Aliens - Chariots, Gods and Beyond

From Amazon.co.uk

Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods provides the inspiration for this History Channel series, which takes UFOs and extraterrestrials deadly seriously. Over five episodes, it explores phenomena throughout the ages that defy explanation. The first, "Evidence," looks at Indian aeronautical texts, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and the Saqqara Bird, an Egyptian carving that anticipates the airplane. Legendary Times publisher and consulting producer Giorgio A. Tsoukalos feels that items like the figurine "have nothing in common with anything similar in nature." That's a matter of opinion, though other authors, engineers, and investigators tend to agree, which isn't a problem in and of itself, except there are few dissenting voices.

In "The Visitors," "The Mission," and "Closer Encounters," the show travels to Peru, Mali, Iraq, and other locations to discuss elongated skulls, cattle mutilation, and primitive stargazing (the theory that King Tut might have been part-alien seems pretty far-fetched). Further references to the Knights Templar and the Ark of the Covenant, which some believe lies beneath an island in Nova Scotia, bring Spielberg blockbusters, like Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, to mind. The series concludes with "The Return," a look at sightings and attempts to communicate with aliens by NASA and SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence).

Like von Däniken's controversial bestseller, Ancient Aliens presents intriguing data but calls for a healthy degree of skepticism, since there's more speculation on offer than verifiable fact (the boisterous Swiss scribe also appears in the program). The academic speakers make valid points, but a few experts seem less credible. It's easier, for instance, to trust an MIT or UCLA scholar over a radio host or crop circle researcher. This three-disc set concludes with a bonus episode, "Chariots, Gods and Beyond," which surveys the links between theology and ancient astronaut theory. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

The History Channel's "Ancient Aliens" is an in depth show that investigates the origins of our civilizations on Planet Earth by re-interpreting ancient archaeological artefacts, writings, ruins and cave paintings. There are a number of world renowned experts who present compelling cases for extra terrestrial influence, guidance and genetic manipulation of many different cultures of our world. The theories are presented in a scientific manner and are backed up with what seems to be concrete corroborating evidence. Wherever possible modern day specialists are consulted to offer their opinions in many varying fields such as stone masons, aviation engineers, geologists, chemists, biologists, doctors and archaeologists. Many if not all of the theories put forward by the resident "Ancient Alien" experts are highly plausible and logical when accompanied with the relevant artefacts. If you are open minded and can accept that we are not alone in the Universe then these DVD box sets are for you and they will change you perspective forever.

You need an open scientific mind to watch this and not to be hampered by religious dogma. The ideas put forward make a lot more sense than any religion where you're asked to accept that there's a "god" controlling our fate and if we disobey him ( or her) we'll be eternally damned. It's far more likely that the so called gods are actually advanced civilizations that regard us as nothing better than microbes in a petri dish. Don't watch if you're not the sort of person who can listen to alternative explanations for why we're here. If you believe in God why stop there why not accept that there's a tooth fairy and other equally unlikely spiritual entities - belief in God is really a way of saying "I can't understand it so I'll make up a supernatural being to pray to then all will be fine" - dream on !!

Some interesting ideas that raise questions about how we are taught about the world around us. I would like to think that some of the ideas were true but the way certain ancient cultures are ignored undermines the basic premise behind the ancient alien theory. There is an over emphasis on Asian and European cultures which has lead to criticisms of racism inherent to the theory. I'm going to be charitable and say it was an oversight that lead the producers of the series to ignore the entire continent of Africa with the exception of ancient Egypt the history and religious culture of which is completely misrepresented. Nonetheless much of the basis to the theory is just badly interpreted science. I can see why it has become so popular, but anyone with a critical mind will see the gaping holes in the theory are skimmed over in the show. This shouldn't be viewed as anything more than light entertainment. It is not scientific or educational. It is entertaining fiction nothing more.

A very extraordinary box set in every way. I bought this as I was intrigued by the subject matter but must admit I was quite skeptical, and this boxset does a great job of laying out very well thought out, intelligent arguments in a very professional, well presented manner. It's easy with this material to be too bombastic or fantastical and - whilst the series does present some truly astounding theories - each one is well evidenced and presented as a question, rather than as fact. This is very much the Von Daniken way and is a nice dovetail to his works. Some of the 'experts' are a little too myopic in their views, however it doesn't detract as the strength here is in the evidence presented - it doesn't try to sway you with faux-scientific opinion, it just serves up a series of facts and asks you the question "what do you think?". And that's it's great strength.
Would heartily recommend, not just for UFO/Alien enthusiasts, but for anyone with even the slightest interest in history, astronomy, evolution or civilisation.
Very good material, very well presented, excellent stuff History channel.
(Small point of note, I have seen this on the History channel where it has an English accented narrator, this box set has an American narrator - as I presume this is the original recording - however, personally I think the American narrator does a better job).

Ancient aliens is a chance for viewers to step out the proverbial box and really answer 'what if' about the origins and history of our species. Critics of the show have lambasted it for its outlandish claims but they really constantly ask questions and don't state facts. Yes, some of the conclusions might seem obscene but you have to take a leap of faith somewhat and immerse yourself in the theory: Did ancient aliens really visit our planet thousands of years ago and have an impact upon our development? There are oh so many things the show talks about which society needs to be asking and this dvd is a great place to start this investigation. The one thing it certainly does is rationalise the history of our world's religions which makes the wildly unfeasible oddities of our remote past seemingly plausible. The show is well produced with great graphics and sound effects (although the combination of the powerful narrator and background sounds can make me quite sleepy). You have to have an open mind to watch this show and then reach your own conclusions. Enjoy!
