According to the History Channel website it airs on the 17th at 9pm eastern time.  Not sure how that translates for the rest of you, but you should be able to find out without too much trouble.  The title of the show is "Ancient Discoveries: Ancient Super Ballistics" so search for that.

Brian,

Thanks for that. Seems to me the History Channel needs a little more helpful information on its web site.

ok cool, thought it would be the ancient ballistics episode.. in the description they talk about bullets..

hope it goes in depth about slings.. and not a quick throw and then cut to something else.


I swear if the history channel calls it a slingshot im going to write them several nasty letters (from several fake addresses Tongue )

Not sure if that'll be the one. I got the impression the show was to have a biblical theme all round.

You could well be right. Given the allmost complete lack of information on the History Channel site (who ever thought one went to web sites for information? †Sad ) it's difficult to tell. However, Balearic Slinger mentioned they were making scientific measurements, which sounds like the flavor of the series.

We'll let you know when we see it.

Wannabeslinger: I expect you will be right, but a little exposure is probably better than none. †Wink

The archers, atlatlists and catapult folks are also probably straining at the bit.

It's a clue - whether it is enough is a matter of opinion. Apparently insufficient for some of us anyway Wink.

I filpped ahead on the guide of my satelite dish at 8:00 central. ancient discoveries they said reveal the ballistics of ancient bullets and bombs or something. Guess we will just have to tune in.

Disappointing to the supreme. While the show was incredibly interesting (I learned a lot, especially about the awesomeness of Chinese martial engineers) there was no significant mention of slings and certainly no footage. The only atlatl bit that turned up was a brief clip mentioning the "throwing stick" developed as the first significant improvement on ranged weaponry. That's certainly questionable.

The trebuchet and onager bits were really interesting though.

Clear;y that was not the much anticipated show we were all hopining for. It was interesting though.


Last year a production crew came to my work and filmed a bunch of people for a TV show called some assembly required. We were told it would air in the early fall around september. It actually came on in like december or january. So we all could be jumping the gun a little.

I did notice that the production site said that it was for Ancient Discoveries 3... that might give us a hint as to when it will be coming on.  Neither biblical productions nor the wild dreams films site days anything about when it will be... they just say to check back for when it will air.... crappit.
