baffled even the most logical and scientific of minds.
Arthur C Clarke sets out to take away the confusion and try
and find some reasonable explanation for some of the weirdest
events ever known. Two years in the making, the series seeks
out the strange and magnificent - how did frogs rain down on
an English golf course? How do rocks move unaided across
Americas Death Valley? And what is the secret behind the
Mitchell Hedges crystal skull?
Season 1, Ep 5: Giants for the Gods
Mystifying geoglyphs, giant pictures covering large areas on
the ground, appear across the globe, many created by ancient
peoples. They only become recognizable at great distances or
are situated away from the common sight of man. Some remind us
that many civilizations held beliefs that dealt with ideas
well beyond everyday life, while others concern rituals and
legends. Many, because of scale, were obviously not meant for
mere humans of Earth to see. This episode, containing stunning
films, addresses the questions surrounding these images.
