Evidence of the Unexplained

Evidence of the Unexplained - Blaze


Every year there are over 6,000 sightings of ‘unexplained aerial phenomena’ and hundreds more so-called ‘first contact’ moments. There are myriad accounts of strange flying objects, weird deep space phenomena and bizarre messages received from distant galaxies. And with the declassification of the USA’s top-secret ‘UFO’ files in 2021, there is now too much evidence to ignore. This series examines the very latest sightings, which are supported by credible eyewitness accounts or clear video footage and examines recently released declassified evidence which casts new light on historic cases. 

Ancient Aliens

Ancient Aliens examines 75 million years of the most credible alien evidence here on Earth, from the age of the dinosaurs to ancient Egypt and the skies over the western desert in the present-day US. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, an asphalt-like substance in an Egyptian pyramid made from the remains of unidentified creatures, continued mass sightings in the USA - these are just a few of the strange stories that will be investigated.

The Proof Is Out There

This UFO Special with host Tony Harris separates the real from the fake in some of the top UFOs caught on camera in recent history. Spanning 70 years, videos range from a bizarre shape caught on camera during a 1950s minor league baseball game, to new videos leaked in 2021 of pyramids apparently stalking US warships, and a UFO that seemingly dives into the ocean and disappears. Harris and a collection of top experts, from national security specialists to physicists, evaluate each video or film.
