The Lost Colony of Roanoke: New Evidence

Premiering Sunday, May 8 at 8pm ET/PT

In 1587, a group of 117 men, women and children set sail for America from England. Arriving three decades before the Mayflower, they were on track to become American heroes. Instead, they became the subject of America’s first mystery. The colonists landed on Roanoke Island, part of the outer banks of North Carolina. Three years later, they vanished. One of the only clues to their fate: a coded message carved into a tree. In this new Science Channel special, The Colony of Roanoke: New Evidence, a joint team of investigators from the US and UK makes astonishing new archaeological discoveries and pieces together centuries-old clues to reveal what really happened to the settlers, uncovering a story of hope and inspiration to change the history books forever. Produced by BriteSpark Films and Saloon Media for Science Channel.

Abandoned: Uncovering Fukushima

Premiering Sunday, April 15 at 8pm ET/PT

On March 11, 2011, a powerful earthquake and the resulting tsunami wreaked havoc on Japan’s east coast, causing the second biggest nuclear accident to ever affect our planet. When emergency safeguards failed, 3 of the nuclear plant’s 6 reactors went into meltdown, and 460,000 people were displaced overnight. The homes and towns they left behind remain, frozen-in-time ghost towns. In Abandoned: Uncovering Fukushima, investigators return to the hazardous nuclear zone to uncover the secrets behind the wildlife that has claimed the toxic environment as its own, not just surviving the radiation, but thriving against all odds. From fearsome wild boar to mysterious Japanese macaques, experts examine what effect the radiation has had on the species that live there – from their behavior and appearance to observable genetic mutations – giving a rare, breathtaking insight into some of the greatest mysteries in nature today.

Discovery and AT&T Close WarnerMedia Transaction

Combination of Discovery and WarnerMedia Creates Warner Bros. Discovery, Global Leader in Entertainment and Streaming

Warner Bros. Discovery to Begin Trading on the Nasdaq as “WBD” on Monday, April 11

NEW YORK and DALLAS, April 8, 2022 – Today Discovery, Inc. and AT&T Inc.* (NYSE:T) announced that they have closed their transaction to combine the WarnerMedia business with Discovery. The combination creates a premier standalone global media and entertainment company, Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc., which will begin trading on the Nasdaq with the start of trading on Monday, April 11, under the new ticker symbol “WBD.”

Warner Bros. Discovery will create and distribute the world’s most differentiated and complete portfolio of content, brands and franchises across television, film and streaming. The new company combines WarnerMedia’s premium entertainment, sports and news assets with Discovery’s leading non-fiction and international entertainment and sports businesses, including Discovery Channel, discovery+, Warner Bros. Entertainment, CNN, CNN+, DC, Eurosport, HBO, HBO Max, HGTV, Food Network, Investigation Discovery, TLC, TNT, TBS, truTV, Travel Channel, MotorTrend, Animal Planet, Science Channel, New Line Cinema, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Turner Classic Movies and others.

“Today’s announcement marks an exciting milestone not just for Warner Bros. Discovery but for our shareholders, our distributors, our advertisers, our creative partners and, most importantly, consumers globally,” said David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Discovery chief executive officer. “With our collective assets and diversified business model, Warner Bros. Discovery offers the most differentiated and complete portfolio of content across film, television and streaming. We are confident that we can bring more choice to consumers around the globe while fostering creativity and creating value for shareholders. I can’t wait for both teams to come together to make Warner Bros. Discovery the best place for impactful storytelling.”

“We are at the dawn of a new age of connectivity, and today marks the beginning of a new era for AT&T,” said John Stankey, AT&T chief executive officer. “With the close of this transaction, we expect to invest at record levels in our growth areas of 5G and fiber, where we have strong momentum, while we work to become America’s best broadband company. At the same time, we’ll sharpen our focus on returns to shareholders. We expect to invest for growth, strengthen our balance sheet and reduce our debt, all while continuing to pay an attractive dividend that puts us among the top dividend paying stocks in America.

“In WarnerMedia, Discovery inherits a talented and innovative team and a dynamic growing and global company that is well positioned to lead the transformation that’s taking place across media and entertainment, direct-to-consumer distribution and technology. The combination of the two companies will strengthen WarnerMedia’s established and leading position in media and streaming. And our shareholders will now have a significant stake in Warner Bros. Discovery and its future successes. We look forward to seeing what the WBD team accomplishes with these industry-leading assets.”

Additionally, shareholders of AT&T received 0.241917 shares of WBD for each share of AT&T common stock they held at close. As a result, AT&T shareholders received 1.7 billion shares of WBD, representing 71% of WBD shares on a fully diluted basis. Discovery’s existing shareholders own the remainder of the new company. In addition to their new shares of WBD common stock, AT&T shareholders continue to hold the same number of shares of AT&T common stock they held immediately prior to close.

Mike Baker Returns for New Season of ‘Black Files Declassified’ March 9 on Science Channel

STRANGER THAN SCIENCE FICTION: FORMER CIA OPERATIVE MIKE BAKER RETURNS TO INVESTIGATE TOP-SECRET GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS IN NEW SEASON OF ‘BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED’

‘BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED’ Premieres Wednesday, March 9 at 9 PM ET/PT on Science Channel

(NEW YORK) – Every year, there are billions of dollars allocated to clandestine government programs around the world known as the ‘black budget.’ Each individual operation is known as a Black File, and each is shrouded in secrecy and mystery. What are these classified government programs? What is their purpose, and what do they reveal about our world? In an all-new season of BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED, former CIA operative, Mike Baker, follows the money trail each week to reveal the many secrets at the core of these Black Files and pull back the curtain on the secret government programs that sometimes sound more like science fiction than truth.

A new season of BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED premieres Wednesday, March 9 at 9pm ET/PT on Science Channel. Follow the conversation on social media with #BlackFilesDeclassified, and follow Science Channel on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more updates.

With unprecedented access, Mike is able to dig into these top-secret government programs steeped in cutting edge science and conduct his own research by speaking with experts, journalists, and former government and Black File officials.

This season, Mike will explore a top-secret aerospace program that, according to recently uncovered documents, has been involved in investigations into the paranormal such as werewolves, ghosts, cattle mutilations and more. When the US Navy recently confirmed the existence of a covert group investigating unknown aerial phenomena, AATIP, or the Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program became front page news. But there is a much more secretive and equally shadowy precursor to AATIP known as AAWSAP, or the Advanced Aerospace Weapon Systems Applications Program. Their focus was firmly on what can only be termed as “the real-life X Files.” But how and why was our government investigating such phenomena? And how does it affect the safety of our nation?

Also this season, Mike investigates what’s been called one of America’s best kept secrets – a list of emergency powers the President has at their disposal during extreme events like nuclear war or governmental collapse. Recently, there have been calls in Congress to limit the powers coming from a Black File called PEADS, short for ‘Presidential Emergency Action Documents.’ These highly secretive documents confer extraordinary and unlimited Presidential powers during “Acts of Wartime” without any congressional approval or oversight. What are the scenarios that trigger PEADS and what powers do they contain?

Each week, BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED will seek out the truth behind some of the world’s most intriguing secret operations. From unraveling the mystery behind a sighting of the famous Black Budget funded squadron known as the Red Eagles 30 years after they were decommissioned, to exploring one of the most daring Black Budget funded special operations in history known only as Mission 7, each week Mike will choose another truth to seek behind some of the world’s greatest mysteries.

BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED is produced for Science Channel by Espiritus Productions and Arcadia Entertainment. For Espiritus Productions executive producers are Bill and Michelle Katz. For Arcadia Entertainment, executive producer is John Wesley Chisholm. For Science Channel, Neil Laird is Executive Producer and Andrew Lessner is Producer.

SCIENCE CHANNEL SPOTLIGHTS THE OFTEN UNSEEN HISTORY OF THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD





SCIENCE CHANNEL SPOTLIGHTS THE OFTEN UNSEEN HISTORY OF THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD, NOW REVEALED BY MODERN TECHNOLOGY

Narrated by Actor-Director Clark Johnson, ‘Underground Railroad: The Secret History,’ a Four Part Docu-Series, Premieres Sunday, January 30 at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel and
Streaming on discovery+
(NEW YORK) – Much of the history of enslaved people in the United States has gone undocumented. Now, cutting edge technology, and the perseverance of archaeologists and historians, is bringing to light the secret pathways, communities and outposts that provided refuge to Freedom Seekers. Experts are also uncovering crucial details about the people behind those locations, and the individuals who made these life-changing journeys.

Narrated by actor-director Clark Johnson (Homicide: Life on the Street, The Wire, Your Honor, Percy), UNDERGROUND RAILROAD: THE SECRET HISTORY, a four-part docu-series, premieres Sunday, January 30 at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel and streaming on discovery+. Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #UndergroundRailroadTheSecretHistory and follow Science Channel on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.

To be successful, the Underground Railroad had to operate in secrecy – therefore, little written documentation about these journeys exists. Now, new technology and extensive research are revealing that the Underground Railroad’s path not only led north – from southern U.S. states where slavery was legal into free northern states and Canada. But it also took surprising turns to the south, all the way into Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean. The details uncovered also show that stops in the north often proved as dangerous as those in the states from which Freedom Seekers fled.

From secret hideaways located in graveyards just outside of the nation’s capital and underground tunnels originally built by George Washington, to a refuge deep in a swamp, the series uses thermal drones, LiDAR, GPR and GIS to map and record the hidden underground tunnels, remote caves and thriving yet isolated communities used by Freedom Seekers escaping enslavement.

Across the series, viewers will hear from the descendants of Freedom Seekers who add insight with their family history, passed down from generation to generation. Audiences also hear from archaeologists including Dr. Justin Dunnavant of UCLA, Dr. Ayana Omilade Flewellen of UC Riverside, Dr. Cheryl LaRoche of the University of Maryland, Dr. Dan Sayers of American University, Jeffrey Shanks of the National Park Service and Dr. Terrance Weik of University of South Carolina, as well as historians and academics including Anthony Cohen, President of the Menare Foundation, Lisa Fager of the Mt. Zion-FUBS Foundation, Dr. Maria Hammack of University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander of Norfolk State University, Dr. Rolonda Teal of Steven F. Austin State University and Dr. Javier Wallace of Duke University. These experts share their research and discoveries, giving valuable context to these stories and helping to solidify the legacies of those who sought freedom on the Underground Railroad.

In the series premiere, we travel south into Florida, Texas and Mexico. Archaeologists unravel the mystery of a free Black fort in Florida that was nearly erased from history by the U.S. military. After two centuries, little evidence of its existence can be seen at the site today. What can the latest technology reveal about the people who lived in this stronghold and its ultimate demise? And in Texas, oral tradition points to nature as an important resource, and now, thermal drones are uncovering Texas caves that provided shelter to those heading toward the treacherous Rio Grande on the way to Mexico.

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD: THE SECRET HISTORY brings new focus on courageous Freedom Seekers and their allies in this critical chapter of American history. These are the stories of those who risked their lives in the ultimate pursuit of freedom, and the ingenious methods used achieve liberty.

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD: THE SECRET HISTORY is produced by Attraction for Science Channel. For Attraction, Producer is Nicole Hamilton, Executive Producers are Joey Case and Richard Speer, and Series Producer is Margot Daley. For Science Channel, Executive Producers are Caroline Perez and Lindsey Foster Blumberg and Co-producer is Andrew Lessner.

SCIENCE CHANNEL ANNOUNCES TWO SPECIALS ON THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DECEMBER LAUNCH





SCIENCE CHANNEL ANNOUNCES TWO SPECIALS ON THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DECEMBER LAUNCH OF THE JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE
Pre-launch Special To Air Tuesday, December 21 at 10 PM ET/PT and Post-Launch Special to air Sunday, December 26 at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel
(LOS ANGELES) – The world’s most powerful observatory – the James Webb Space Telescope – is set for launch this month after over 25 years of development and construction. Science Channel, the leader of all things space, will take viewers inside this incredible feat of technology and its launch with two specials.

BEYOND HUBBLE: The Telescope of Tomorrow, airing Tuesday, December 21 at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel, has everything you need to know about the upcoming launch taking place in French Guiana, including the story of the telescope’s construction, its extensive testing and preparation for launch. Using the latest CGI animation technology, Science Channel will follow the journey and share the incredible cosmological images and mysteries that scientists believe the telescope will capture.

This super-telescope is the next generation successor to the Hubble Space Telescope with a mirror 6 times bigger. The estimated cost of constructing and operating the telescope is close to $10 billion. The telescope will also be able to peer back in time. For the first time in space exploration, scientists will be able to explore the formation of the first stars and galaxies and search for planets that can support life. But just what will it see?

Then on Sunday, December 26 at 10 PM ET/PT, Science Channel will broadcast a follow up BEYOND HUBBLE special that will include all the exciting moments from its launch. The telescope’s infrared vision has the ability to probe the atmosphere of any earthlike planets with incredible detail. It will revolutionize our understanding of how the universe works and unlock its greatest mystery – how did our solar system form and are we alone in the cosmos?

Both specials will reveal the story behind this pioneering mission through the eyes and experiences of the team behind it. It is an engineering feat like no other. The telescope is more powerful than any observatory built to date – detecting light 44 times fainter than current space-based telescopes. Will we once and for all unlock the many cosmic mysteries that have remained a secret? And what mysteries have we yet to uncover? This is a pivotal moment in space history.

Viewers can join the conversation by using the hashtag #BeyondHubble and following Science Channel on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.

BEYOND HUBBLE: The Telescope of Tomorrow is produced for Science Channel by Windfall Films (part of the Argonon Group). For Windfall Films, the Producer/Director is Martin Gorst and Executive Producer is Carlo Massarella. For Science Channel, Executive Producers are Wyatt Channell and Caroline Perez, Producer is Jennifer Gross.
