    Almost every major culture includes an ancient flood story. What if evidence of the Great Flood could be found? Join Dr. Robert Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic, on an odyssey to find the submerged truth about the Great Flood. Dr. Ballard sets off to look for ancient shipwrecks, and search for evidence supporting a controversial theory that links the legend of the Great Flood with the catastrophic flooding of the Black Sea around 5500 B.C. As his sonar scans the desolate sea floor, and robotic submersibles search the haunting darkness of the Black Sea's "dead zone," the truth begins to emerge from the murky depths of myth and legend.

What prompts them to seek out distant destinations? In a world threatened by overfishing and declining marine populations, understanding their behavior may be the key to ensuring hammerhead survival.

    Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/Ancient Civilizations

    High in the cloud forests of Peru is the mountaintop fortress of a lost civilization and an ancient legend of murder. The Chachapoya, or Cloud Warriors who lived over 400 years ago, vanished virtually overnight. For years, anthropologists have been hunting for who or what killed these people. Now, the discovery of a site with more than 80 corpses could solve this mystery. National Geographic joins a team of archaeologists and anthropologists who believe the answer is hidden in the bones—testing theories from an Inca massacre or an epidemic brought by the Spaniards to a ritual sacrifice or assassination by a rival tribe to finally close the case on this lost capital's ultimate collapse.
