    Did we evolve from apes--or is there perhaps another, more startling, explanation? Asking why humans are so different from every other Earth species, this episode proposes that perhaps advances in human evolution were brought about by visiting interstellar beings.

    "Did ancient aliens really help to shape our history? And does it help to explain our continuing fascination with stories of gods and heroes?" Throughout history, humans have told incredible tales of gods possessing extraordinary powers - superhuman strength, extrasensory sight and even the awesome gift of flight. Are these ancient accounts only myths and tall tales, or could they actually be based on historical events? And if mythical gods really did exist, might they have been extraterrestrial beings? And could these ancient memories help to explain the enduring popularity of gods, titans and today's so-called comic book "super-heroes"?

    People have loved stories about vampires, werewolves, and zombies for so long that no one quite knows where the stories began. But could the stories about these foreign creatures have actually derived from beings from another world? Perhaps the very idea that a being could exist without a soul came from encounters with a people who had no concept of a soul.

    Sudden advances in human history, and particularly in the weapons of war, have seemed to come out of nowhere.

    The ruins of ancient civilizations may have clues buried among them that point towards contact with alien beings. The Mayan City of Copan is covered in carvings that do not come from any known techniques of artwork. The Nazca people used their own bodies as canvases for artwork that seems to call out to beings from beyond the stars. Do these ruins tell us about something more than human history?

An acoustic room in Malta seems to be designed to capture sounds from elsewhere, and a castle in the mountains of Peru shows the signs of carving that could have only been done with a laser.

    Many ancient legends tell stories of flying creatures that unleashed their power on the earth. This episode explores the possibility that what the witnesses were seeing were actually space craft.
