    • Intriguing and inspiring. A show that takes its audience to archeological sites all over the world in an attempt to answer questions of ancient mystery, myth and documented accounts.

      Digging for the Truth is a show that attempts to answer questions of ancient mysteries by visiting the documented locations associated with them. Host Josh Bernstein, doing his best Indiana Jones impression, visits archeological sites and interviews scholars in an attempt to answer age old questions of past civilizations. Josh has the greatest job in the world and does his job all over the world.

      The show often tends to leave the questions unanswered or open-ended but that is part of what makes the show great. This leaves the answers to be discovered by its audience. Digging for the truth hands you the shovel, but you have to do the digging. It is this sort of intrigue that encourages viewers to conduct their own research and immerse themselves in history.

      Josh Bernstein has since left the show and has been replaced by a new host. I have not been able to catch but only one episode of the new season so I cannot make a comment on the new direction of the show. What I did see of it remains the same, however, Josh was a much better fit to host the show.moreless
    • i absolutely love this entire series, but only with josh bernstein as the host! i learned more from him then i did in history class!!!

      i love this show, but i love every episode! i would call this show one of my favorites! josh is hot, so smart, sexy, an amazing person! i hope great things happen for him! i know now that they have two new hosts for the show, which i think stinks! they are replacing one of the best hosts ever with two morons! its kind of unfair that josh had to do so much alone, and now they hire two guys to do his job. i will not watch this show if josh isnt on it! i learned so much from josh, this show is nothing without josh! i am sure they will lose a bunch of viewers!!moreless
    • Example of great courage and determination!

      It is a demonstration of ability, charisma and professionalism! An accurate combination of talent and chance that used in the best way bring huge resulted. The secrets kept in the places most distant and inaccessible of the land now are threatened! He, Josh Bernstein, arrived to shake the hardest structures of the mysteries of history. Using the tools of the technology and science no track will be able to escape of his intent way. He demonstrates respect to the beliefs, religions, sacred places, cultures, etc. This way, all the doors of the world opens it for him. For everything this, I take off my hat! “Many people dream to arrive where few want. Those that look for are rarity. Unique is this that arrives!” Sophydiahmoreless

    • This is one of the History Channels better shows. I think Josh adds a very organic excitement to the show. He is really interested in the topic of the week.

      I have truly enjoyed this show. I think that as young as Josh is and putting aside the Indiana Jones persona. He is a great fit for a very hard job. The subject matter is no easy push over kind-a-stuff. There are some theological land mines in these episodes that Josh handles like a real professional. He really goes out in search of answers to some tough questions. In the Sodom and Gomorrah episode where he is looking for the sulfur and in the America's Pyramids episode where he has to carry to dirt up the hill. He gets involved in the hunt. He is very hands on and I think very few people could pull that off. I am glad that the History Channel went with the younger Josh as the host.moreless
