I think I've seen this before - it appears to be Ancient Aliens The Series  produced by the lovely Giorgio Tsoukalos.  I really enjoyed this 5 part series and found it extremely entertaining.  Even though I'm not normally a big believer in any of these theorys, I did find it great food for thought!   Hopefully, that is what the video was otherwise, I'm raving on about something altogether unrelated LOL

I did watch these on the history channel, they brought up some artifacts that blows modern archaeology out of the box, some more than others at least. These are very interesting for believers or skeptics, I really can't wait to see more input on this.

I've pretty much stopped watching the history channel following their coverage of the Crystal skulls.
I've done a bit of reading on the Crystal skulls and had read several different documentations that showed the detailed analysis showing tools marks and origin of the stone, tying it back to a place in Britain that produced fakes during the 1800s.
They completly failed to mention the analysis, and stated that no studies had found evidence of tool marks.

Predominately, more and more these "Ancient Aliens" shows just prey on the lack of information that their viewers have.

They used this image here at one point:

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

You can't just take the whole of what they say, you take bits and pieces of it, and make your own interpretation, that's why those shows are fascinating. Like you can explain certain parts of it, but there are parts in there neither you, me or professionals can explain, and that is where you make your conclusions.

Yes... but if they predominantly lie, and deliberately withhold information from you that would explain what they are presenting, encouraging you towards faulty ideas of what they are presenting, then what is the value?

The whole of the argument though is made up of the sum of the bits and pieces taken all together. Try taking these pieces out of that artificial context and not only do they tend to lose much their alleged significance but the larger argument itself collapses.

What a load.

The entire display - all the episodes - were filled with outright lies and awkward misrepresentations of known facts, but you swallowed it whole and now suggest we create, and apparently invest undeserved belief in, our own fantasies from selected bits of falsehood that you find particularly interesting.

There are no doubt parts that you can't explain.  There are no parts that haven't been explained by professionals with a great deal more knowledge than Giorgio Tsoukalos.

The series was concocted to generate increased sales for Tsoukalos's magazine "Legendary Times."  That, and to sell ad time on the so-called "history" channel.

To the uninformed, it was fascinating.  To the informed, it was a truly disgusting display.  To the overinformed, it was another opportunity to laugh out loud at the gibbering buffoon that is David Hatcher Childress.

Almost everything talked about on that show has been completely debunked.  There are some true mysteries in the world, but very few, and they certainly dont add up to evidence for alien intervention.

The producers of the show certainly knew that much of what they were presenting was complete BS, yet they present it without any attempt at showing the whole story.

What did you expect? Makes the audience numbers go up, innit? People tend to forget that the primary goal of any TV show is audience numbers and generating money thru publicity, History Channel is no exception.

I used to love the History Channel before Disney bought it out.  Now it is all sensational nonsense.
