Viewers embark on a journey with Clarke as their guide through mysteries of this world. Clarke introduces the various themes that will be explored in the series. He introduces the concept of three levels of mysteries: The first kind, which were mysterious once but can now be explained or understood; the second kind, which are unexplained but for which hints toward a possible answer can be found; and the third kind, which appear to have no rational explanation.
Originally broadcast in September 1980, Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World brought an innovative approach to exploring natural and supernatural phenomenon. After 13 episodes, the series sadly came to a close. Our team at Gaia diligently pursued the acquisition of Mysterious World in order to save it from obscurity. Gaia is proud to re-present this groundbreaking series and restore the sense of wonder and intrigue that it once brought to our mysterious world.
