In recent years, complex and seemingly inexplicable patterns have frequently appeared in the wheat fields and meadows of the English countryside. But are crop circles really cryptic messages from alien life forms, or just a rural post-pub practical joke? Head into the field as we consider the conflicting evidence in an attempt to answer the ultimate question: Is It Real?
GhostsCountless people claim to have seen ghosts—but have they genuinely glimpsed the supernatural, or are they just merely suffering from over-active imaginations? Scientists and paranormal detectives investigate the haunting world of phantom images, disembodied voices, and things that go bump in the night. Join real-life ghostbusters and real-world skeptics as they journey from infamous haunted houses to legendary castles hunting the spooky truth behind paranormal phenomena!
Could the wounds Jesus Christ received on his forehead, side, hands and feet during his last hours appear unintentionally (and miraculously) in a select few among us? The marks are called stigmata—the divine malady. Over the course of the 20th century, claimed cases of stigmata have been remarkably on the rise. Are these claims real or frauds? NGC investigates by securing testimonies from stigmatics, believers, investigators and scientists so that you can determine the ultimate question: Is It Real?
