Secrets of the Dead  "Lost in the Amazon"  This program is a modern day quest to find the truth behind one of exploration's greatest mysteries: what happened to famed adventurer Col.

New archaeological digs, the science behind the discovery of "newly found" jungle cities and clues collected over the years reveal the fate of Fawcett. The program unravels the truth of what really happened to Fawcett and shares surprising finds that are causing experts to re-think the image of a pristine uninhabited Amazon rainforest: a place that before Columbus, may have had large populations living in sophisticated towns and cities.
