aka: The Last Train
A group of commuter train passagers are put in accidental suspended animation and emerge years later into a devastated world.
Presented in the 1968 bestselling book Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Daniken, the theory of "ancient aliens" rocked people's beliefs in mankind's progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the "flying machines of the gods" were just a few of the odd archaeological artefacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors. Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, Ancient Aliens launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on the latest discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on man's evolution and newly decoded artefacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.

aka: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World
TV series loosely based on the 1912 novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A band of adventurers, led by adventurer and scholar Professor Edward Challenger, embark on an Amazonian expedition to prove the existence of a lost world isolated from the rest of the modern world. The British expedition team consisting of a mismatched group of enthusiasts, all with less than selfless reasons for making the journey begin their trip under less than ideal conditions.
It is here, on a remote plateau in the Amazon jungle dinosaurs have survived. The group also finds highly evolved apes, Amazonian Indians who think Challenger a god, and, on the way, they come across the attractive orphaned niece of a lonely missionary (who joins the group). Theology intervenes in this exercise in vindicating Darwin and the missionary twice attempts to sabotage the mission. After much excitement, love is found in unexpected places, and, confronted by civilization, as represented by the Royal Society in London, Challenger changes his story.
