Jamie Theakston attempts to uncover the truth about historical mysteries, ancient relics, hidden treasures, conspiracy theories and lost civilizations. Have these stories been omitted from the history books?
Excellent series which takes you around the world to places you would be very lucky to see. Abandoned ships, power stations, sites of massive world war 1 and 2 guns, prisons in the most unlikely places, roads and bridges constructed decades ago and long forgotten. But more than this, each constructions raison d'être and why they fell into disrepair. The subjects are explained thoroughly by experts in their field with cinematic footage illustrating their stories. Who is aware that the Spanish built a massive railway station in Canfranc in the Pyrenees in 1928, 790 feet long - the second largest station in Europe in an art deco style - truly a grand sight - now left to rack and ruin. A real eye opener and very addictive.
