By Virgin TV Edit

Ready to step into the unknown? On Tuesday 9 June all Virgin TV customers can experience Sky HISTORY HD’s Summer Of Secrets season by tuning into two new and exclusive documentaries that look to unravel the mysteries of our world.


Yes, that’s right. Sky HISTORY HD is normally only available to Virgin TV customers with the Full House or Maxit TV packages, but every Virgin TV customer can watch these thought-provoking shows on Channel 100 at absolutely no extra cost!


It all kicks off at 9pm with a new episode of The UnXplained With William Shatner, which follows the Star Trek legend as he investigates how the seemingly impossible can become reality.

Whether it’s exploring mysterious structures or examining bizarre creatures, Shatner enlists the help of experts from the fields of science and history to get to the bottom of these compelling phenomena.


Hot on the heels of this at 10pm is a new episode of Ancient Aliens, the show which takes a closer look at the controversial theory that Earth has been visited by extraterrestrials for millions of years.
