A&E Home Entertainment released documentary TV show Ancient Aliens: The Complete Season One on both DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 23, 2010, for the suggested retail prices of $29.95 and $39.95, respectively.
Presented in the 1968 best-selling book Chariots of the Gods, by Erich von Daniken, the theory of “ancient aliens” rocked people’s beliefs in mankind’s progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the “flying machines of the gods” were just a few of the odd archaeological artifacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors.
Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, Ancient Aliens: The Complete Season One launches new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on man’s evolution and newly decoded artifacts from Egypt to Syria to South America.
The series, which runs nearly eight hours, premiered on April 20, 2010, on the History Channel; Season Two premiered in October 2010.
Bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray include a full-length Ancient Aliens special that was shown on the History Channel in 2009.
