Episode Guide

  • Season 1
    • Chariots, Gods & Beyond

      Chariots, Gods & Beyond was the pilot for what became the Ancient Aliens series. Loosely based on Erich von Daniken's book, Chariots of the Gods?, the series became a home base for ancient alien theorists who argued that "extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago, sharing their expertise with early civilizations and forever changing the course of human history." Intelligently written and graced with interesting interviews, quality graphics and often stunning photography, Ancient Aliens went on to become one of the most popular History Channel series of all-time - and it all started with this fascinating two-hour special.
