We lift 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. We know that the Vatican Archives hold the personal documents of past Popes and that they house important historical pieces such as Galileo's trial transcript, King Henry VIII's annulment request - even letters written by Abraham Lincoln. But what else is hidden away in the Vatican Library - a place that is out of bounds even to cardinals? Why is this historical treasure trove so shrouded in secrecy?

They'll be drawn from both sides of the argument - we'll hear from those that passionately believe there is firm proof that the man we know as Jesus existed and from those that contest that he simply did not.
