FYI - and I know this is seriously short notice - according to history.com, the new season starts tonight, September 3, at 9 PM ET. The new host is Hunter Ellis, and he's got a little introductory video up on the website.

Digging For The Truth: Mummies of the Clouds
Airs on Monday September 03 09:00 PM
Five hundred years before the Inca, a remarkable band of warriors called the Chachapoya built the greatest stone monument in the Americas. Amazingly, it's three times the size of Egypt's largest pyramid. Yet their civilization has almost vanished without a trace. Join Hunter Ellis as he accompanies a team of archaeologists to reveal its secret contents.


I miss Josh already. ): But here's hoping Hunter carries the torch well ...

Just got an anonymous tip at my LJ about Josh Bernstein's new (temporary?) Yahoo! group - seems he's been having some trouble getting the old mailing list imported, the first message in the group is a request to help spread the word - so if you're interested, join here: http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/JBsGroup/join

Hey guys! I don't know why this hasn't been publicized better, I only heard about it from my sister ten minutes ago, but Josh's first special for Discovery will air TONIGHT, August 5, at 8 PM EST.

From discovery.com:

Aug 05, 8:00 pm
(60 minutes)


Can We Control the Weather?

TV-PG

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, some scientists believe that global warming will make super storms even more deadly. Explorer Josh Bernstein investigates whether scientists will ever be able to tame one of Nature's most destructive forces: hurricanes.


It will re-air at 11 PM tonight, and again August 26 at 7 PM.

I hope he does well! I'm curious to see if his DSC specials will have a similar "feel" to DFT.


.. if anyone's on LJ while watching tonight, feel free to use this post for running comments!

Long time no see, I know, I know. Not that there's anything in the way of new episodes. But I am starting to hear bits about the new hosts, so when I can sit down and find some stuff on them I shall post it here. I've been busy with Real Life™ lately. ^^;

And I have been back for a few weeks from taking a BOSS course, and I have to say if you ever have the chance, DO IT. It's probably one of the coolest, hardest, most satisfying things i've done ever. HUGELY worth the lack of showers. :D I'll be posting more about it later; i'm working on a writeup for my own journal and can cross-post if anyone is interested.

Here are some upcoming episodes:

Digging For The Truth : Search for King David Airs on Monday July 16 10:00 PM
Digging For The Truth : Search for King David Airs on Tuesday July 17 02:00 AM

King David is the shepherd poet who slays the giant Goliath, according to the Old Testament. He then goes on to become the first king of a united Israel. Some scientists claim that the archaeological evidence appears to call the story into question; others believe they have already found the evidence to prove that it is true. Join host Josh Bernstein as he examines an ancient basalt slab inscribed with David's name, recreates his famous fight with Goliath, and descends through a secret waterway into the heart of Jerusalem.

Digging For The Truth : Quest for King Solomon's Gold. Airs on Monday July 30 10:00 PM
Digging For The Truth : Quest for King Solomon's Gold. Airs on Tuesday July 31 02:00 AM

Of all the rulers mentioned in the Bible, King Solomon was purportedly the wisest...and the richest! The reason? His access to vast quantities of gold. According to the Bible, the source of his legendary wealth was the goldmines located in the mysterious land of Ophir. Yet, what the Scriptures can't tell us is where Ophir might be found today. Host Josh Bernstein leads us on an epic 4,000-mile journey in search of the lost gold of King Solomon--sailing across the Red Sea, plunging down a Zimbabwean gold mine, and traveling deep into the Ethiopian Bush.

I apologize for not posting anything up last week; I had a family emergency to attend to, so I just didn’t get around to it.

This week we have a smattering of episodes, more than we’ve had to watch in a bit… next weekend I leave for Utah and BOSS, so I’ve included all the episodes that will be on between now and when I return.

Geez, not much to update here. Sorry!

I thought we were going to get the Nazca Lines episode this monday, but the schedule has them showing the Naked Archaeologist instead. Not necessarily a bad substitute, but not DFT.

Also kinda waiting to hear when Season 3 is expected out on DVD. And if, too. O_O;

King Herod's Tomb Unearthed Near Jerusalem, Expert Says

I'm bad. I think Herod is the Purim guy but i'm not sure. XD

Here's a bit more about Discovery Channel's new venture, PlanetGreen... they have the beginnings of a web site up, and on their corporate site there's a bit about what we can expect from Josh's programming:

..."Beginning this year, explorer and wilderness educator Josh Bernstein will lead an annual scientific journey, funded by Discovery Communications, to the planet's most endangered locations. Comprised of educators, students and sponsors, Bernstein will take these groups to the most critical environments to raise awareness about the planet's plight."

Sounds like fun to me. Just no more icebergs, please.

The end. Have a good weekend!
