Leigh Hart's Mysterious Planet Season 1: Episode 3 El Dorado - Part 1



Leigh returns to South America (the place of his birth) to hunt the treasures of El Dorado. 

Through the centuries, the passion for gold has given rise to the enduring tale of a city of gold. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Europeans believed that somewhere in the New World there was a place of immense wealth known as El Dorado. Their searches for this treasure wasted countless lives, drove at least one man to suicide, and put another man under the executioner's ax. In this episode Leigh Hart and the Mysterious Planet team planned to find the city where everyone else has failed. Things don't go well.

Explorer, adventurer and self-proclaimed expert Leigh Hart is on a quest to seek the truth behind the world's greatest mysteries. Armed only with his internet-based knowledge, his Kiwi back-up team, and a credit card, he attempts to solve once and for all, the world's top six greatest mysteries, in as many weeks. In this episode the team are hunting Big Foot. Will Leigh Hart be the man who finally tracks down the legendary Incan gold? Maybe not.

"This programme is appointment viewing and is likely to go down in history as perhaps the greatest and most ambitious television project/experience ever to come out of New Zealand" Leigh Hart.
