History - Secret Season preview and clips

History Channel

Preview by Jack Foley

HISTORY™ – the channel formerly known as The History Channel – has been enthralling viewers with its Secret Season season, throughout the month of January.

Viewers have been able to discover little-known facts about tunnellers, underworld cities and dinosaur secrets. And on Monday, January 26, they can find out How Britain Was Built.

Check out our previews of the episodes you may have missed, as well as clips from each one…


Tunnellers work hundreds of feet down, where it is dark, damp and dangerous, challenging nature’s awesome forces to drive tunnels through solid rock and sinking mud. They drill and blast, bore, mine, and muck. Tragically many tunnellers have been injured in the process, but ultimately theirs is a story of triumph and survival.

Premiered: Thursday, January 15, 9pm (every Thursday at 9pm)

Cities Of The Underworld:

Below the familiar surfaces of skyscrapers, taxis and street vendors, lies a forgotten world deep below the ground – great metropolises, sometimes entire cities, each with its own fascinating and unknown history.

As part of The Secret Season, Don Wildman explores the secrets beneath our city streets – ancient cisterns, dank dungeons, eerie tombs, clandestine hideouts, and even underground shipwrecks that have been lost for hundreds of years, buried deep below the surface.

Premiered: Friday, January 16 at 9pm (showing every Friday at 9pm)
