Brace yourself for the strangest-but-true stories in human history.
About the Show
Did you know that during World War II, FDR launched a top-secret program to attack Japan–with an army of bats? Or that three people once lost their lives thanks to a falling poodle? Have you heard of the island off the coast of Mexico that’s populated by thousands of mutilated dolls? What about the prison where inmates sometimes wake up…with a new set of goat testicles?
If you haven’t, then brace yourself for The UnBelievable with Dan Aykroyd.
Each hour-long episode will open up our cabinet of curiosities to reveal the strangest-but-true stories in human history, brought to life through dynamic recreation, compelling graphics, and arresting archival. From Boston’s Great Molasses Flood to a man who survived being struck by lightning not once, not twice, but SEVEN times, these seemingly tall tales all actually happened, and our cast of experts dives into the historical record to tell you how and why.
