Plunge into the World's Most Fascinating Places and Delve into the most Mystifying of Ancient and Modern Day Mysteries...


MIAMI, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Ancient riddles, modern day mysteries, and natural wonders are just a few of the passions that fuel Josh Bernstein, a true flesh and blood explorer and anthropologist whose relentless quest for answers lead him to some truly remarkable discoveries. Starting February 4th at 9 pm ET (10 pm PT) and every subsequent Wednesday evening on Discovery en Espanol, viewers will partake in the thrill of the hunt with each new gripping episode of “Into the Unknown with Josh Bernstein.”

Each weekly adventure brings Josh to diverse and exotic locations around the planet, retracing steps in search of clues that will help to shed light on centuries old mysteries and modern day enigmas. His spectacular odysseys include a ten hour horse ride through a mountainous terrain to explore the ancient lore behind the disappearance of the Chachapoya of Peru, spellbinding explorations into mummification rituals in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, and revealing forays into the former Roman Empire, from Italy to Turkey to Tunisia, to uncover the true lifestyle and status of the gladiators.

Josh Bernstein’s voracious appetite for knowledge and strong desire to do whatever it takes to explore the world’s hidden treasures is unmatched. Indeed, no location is too remote, no culture too exotic, no goal too ambitious for this most ardent of global explorers and travelers.

A glimpse at some exhilarating episodes:

— In Search of Noah’s Ark: Did the flood of Genesis really happen? Was there an actual ark or a man called Noah? Josh travels throughout Armenia, Israel, Sicily and Cyprus to investigate a compelling new theory about the truth behind this extraordinary biblical event.

— Deep into the Andes: For seven centuries the fierce Chachapoya tribe ruled the mountains of northern Peru from their hilltop fortress … then, in the 1500s, the tribe suddenly vanished from history. Josh goes deep into the Peruvian Andes by foot and by horse to investigate how one of South America’s deadliest tribes could have disappeared in an instant.

— The Beginnings of Life on Earth: For millennia people have assumed that because we live on Earth, life must have started here. But scientists are now seriously considering that life may have come here from Mars, having navigated the hazards of deep space to take up residence on Earth. Josh gains access to places only NASA scientists are typically allowed on his quest through the American West for the true story.
