Devils and Hell

Aired on Oct 09, 2015
Real monsters are behind our greatest legends. The gates of Hell are unlocked to reveal the surprising truths and devilish secrets of Satan, demons, and other powerful rulers of the Underworld. In the 17th century, a beastly devil is born deep in the woods of New Jersey and is said to still wreak havoc in a place called the Pine Barrens. Plus, from evil Jinn, whose power a nuclear physicist tried to tap, to a Christmas devil that takes naughty kids to Hell, to a two-faced female demon named Hel who presided over the dead in the icy North, there's a lot to learn about our devils and the history that inspired them.

Gods and Monsters

Aired on Oct 30, 2015
Real monsters are behind our greatest legends. Greek and Norse mythologies are the source of epic tales of gods and monsters battling it out to rule the world. But could any of these celebrated heroes and villains have been real? Thunder god Thor was a central figure in Scandinavian folklore, but was he based on a real warrior? And, if he was, could his hammer called Mjolnir really harness lightning? Plus, new evidence suggests the discovery of the birthplace of the legendary god Zeus, atop a mountain in Greece. Why does Medusa have a head of snakes, and what atrocity did she endure that still affects women today? And, could the true myth of Prometheus solve an ancient medical mystery?
