At a time when fact checking is all the rage, it may be useful to be aware of certain practices, as this documentary series illustrates.

The ancient history of New Zealand, for instance, may go back much further than is commonly believed. This three-part documentary series, New Zealand – Skeletons in the Cupboard, explores the evidence and the possibilities of when people first arrived in New Zealand and who they were. Watch “The Redheads” (Part 1) above.

Part 2 discusses how history has been modified and archaeological records destroyed to hide information from New Zealand’s people.

Part 2: Under The Carpet

Part 3 is about the surprise origins of the Hawaiian and Eastern Polynesian peoples.

Part 3: Cousins Across the Sea
