Second Of Two Specials.
20 August 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Nearly identical to its predecessor "In Search Of Ancient Astronauts", "In Search Of Ancient Mysteries" is again narrated by Rod Serling, who sounds as though he recorded it at the same time, since he doesn't miss a beat. Once again it focuses on mysterious visitors to Earth who may or may not be our ancestors, depending on what the viewer chooses to believe, since this(like its predecessor) presents its case in a clinical, matter-of-fact way that is interesting if a bit dry.

I remember seeing both these specials in school, and they served there purpose in peaking my interest in such matters.

This is also on the "In Search Of..." DVD set on the bonus disc,and led directly into the superior, Leonard Nimoy hosted series(Rod Serling having passed away.)
