Ancient Aliens (2009)
SE01E00 - Chariots, Gods and Beyond

A brilliant first step into ancient alien astronaut theory, Ancient Aliens (the pilot which would give birth to the first series the following year) acts as a walkthrough of views showcased in Erich von Däniken’s book Chariot of the Gods? (1969) - that extraterrestrials have been to Earth and had a hand in human evolution. This ‘episode zero’ compiles the theories and supporting evidence involving religious, mythological and historical texts/artworks/discoveries from ancient civilisations; as well as interviews with ancient alien astronaut theorists such as David Hatcher Childress, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and Erich von Däniken himself.
