Claims that extraterrestrials influenced early civilizations are reviewed and challenged on "The Case of the Ancient Astronauts." Author Erich von Daniken speaks for the claims; scientists who disagree are also interviewed. Phenomena examined include carvings on a Mayan sarcophagus; geometric lines on Peru's Nazca Desert; the Great Pyramid at Giza; and an African tribe's longtime knowledge of a star first sighted in the late 1800s.
