Fascinating facts from across the centuries


Forbidden History lifts the lid on some of history’s great mysteries by tunnelling deeper, travelling wider, looking more closely, asking harder questions, and searching for evidence with more determination than ever before. We are taken to places far and wide and will encounter conspiracy theories, cover-ups, strange phenomena, unexplained happenings, and mysterious findings – in short, a whole host of unusual goings on that have had a massive bearing on how we view history today.


In the seventh series we go on a quest to find the tomb of Mary Magdalene, search for King Solomon’s Mines, and seek to uncover the mysteries of the world’s oldest temple, Gobekli Tepe in southern Turkey. We’ll also investigate the secrets of the Codex Gigas – known as the Devil’s Bible – and examine the methods that Hitler and the Nazi Party used, from propaganda to ‘holidays of hate’, to indoctrinate a peaceful population and turn it into a finely-tuned war machine.
