Description

History’s Greatest Mysteries delves into the grey, mysterious areas of history to examine the imponderable and sometimes unlikely stories of actual events and real people. 

Seemingly limitless knowledge is easily at hand in our modern era of information. Between the internet and 24-hour news, it's not difficult to fool ourselves into thinking that we know all there is to know. The reality is that the world is full of grey areas and enigma; of unsolved mysteries and unresolved stories.
 
History’s Greatest Mysteries delves into these grey areas to examine the imponderable and sometimes unlikely stories of actual events and real people. From the gruesome murders committed by Jack the Ripper on the streets of London, to the whereabouts of Lord Lucan; and from the loss of an entire continent, to the case of a missing racehorse, we canter through history and shed some light on questions which may never yield definitive answers.
