Next Episode of Time Traveling with Brian Unger is
Time Traveling with Brian Unger goes where ordinary travelers can't, using eye-popping computer-generated graphics to visually travel back in time and tell stories from yesteryear that tourists won't find in the guidebooks. Host Brian Unger is the ultimate tour guide, bringing his irreverent humor and point of view to the fascinating stories that most Americans don't know yet. In each episode, locals agree to accompany Brian to destinations they've never visited before--some off-limits to the general public--or to look at iconic landmarks in a fresh, new way, revealing histories we never knew.
Brian Unger takes locals on an adventure to two vastly different but equally-awe inspiring symbols of American ingenuity. First, Brian travels back to San Francisco in the midst of the Great Depression. This ultra modern city transforms before our eyes to a time when the famous Golden Gate Bridge was merely a dream of Chief engineer Joseph Strauss. Brian and his cast get an exclusive behind the scenes look at the bridge to see what went into its engineering and design - they take a rare look at the bridge's anchorage, then travel by boat underneath it as the bridge transforms before their eyes to its original design and construction.
Brian Unger takes locals back through time to the Old West and the New West, to relive two uniquely American stories. First stop: Tombstone AZ, in the year of 1881. The restored touristy town of today transforms before our eyes to the dusty Wild West locale that it was when man like Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday enforced their own brand of frontier justice. Brian busts a few myths about the infamous shootout at the O.K. Corral and reveals where the gunflight really took place. Hint, it wasn't at the O.K. Corral. Next, Brian travels to the Sin City of lights in the 1940s and '50s, Las Vegas, NV.
Brian travels back in time to 1884 in Washington, DC, to see how a swamp turned into the National Mall and to learn the story behind the US Capitol's construction. Then, he takes locals tramping through Hollywood, CA, in search of the hidden filming locations and studios of Charlie Chaplin.
Brian Unger takes locals on an adventure to uncover the histories of 2 dramatically different landscapes. First, he shows them the bootlegged journey of the Liberty Bell through Pennsylvania; then, he travels to Arizona to explore the stories of the Grand Canyon's past.
Brian Unger and a handful of locals travel back to Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia, at the end of the Civil War, to follow the escape route of Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. The group meets in the alley behind Ford's Theater. It transforms in front of our eyes to 1865 when Booth made his daring escape after shooting president Lincoln. Then, the arduous journey of Booth begins as we follow him and co-conspirator David Herold, as they flee on horseback from federal officers. Next the cast travels to Maryland, where Booth and Herold hide out at the home of Confederate sympathizer Samuel Cox, and then, to the actual pine thicket that the duo hid in for a week after a nervous Cox asks them to leave.
Brian Unger and some locals time travel to Jamestown, Virginia, and Death Valley, California, to learn how they helped shape America today. First stop, Jamestown, Virginia, in the 17th century. Thirteen years before Plymouth Rock, Jamestown became the first permanent English settlement in America. Now an active archaeological site, Jamestown transforms before our eyes to a time when setters faced a myriad of hardships in the New World. Brian and his guests participate in the wedding of Pocahontas and John Rolfe, then take part in an active archaeological dig where they become the first visitors to hold a rare, 400 year-old artifact.
Brian Unger and some locals travel back in time to Baltimore, Maryland, and Los Angeles, California, for two very different American stories. First, Brian and his guests time travel to Baltimore at the height of the War of 1812. They start their journey at Fells Point, a major shipyard during the war. Some of the most famous schooners were built right here, including the "Pride Of Baltimore." The group sets sail on a replica called "Pride of Baltimore II" and the schooner transforms in front of our eyes into its original 19th century glory. Next, the group is led through the actual Battle of Baltimore, where they fire cannons at British ships and attempt to sing the drinking song that eventually became our National Anthem.
Brian and some locals time travel to Galveston, Texas, for a story of triumph over tragedy, then to St. Augustine, Florida, to find out why the Spanish set their sights on the sunshine state. First stop, Galveston in 1900, site of the deadliest hurricane in U.S. history. They find out why the local U.S. Weather Bureau chief, Isaac Cline, grossly underestimated its power, leaving the city unprepared for its deadly destruction. They visit the old weather bureau building where Cline would take his readings and into one of the few homes that survived the storm.
