Digging for the Truth
The Lost Tribes of Israel
Tune In: Monday, March 14 @ 9pm ET/PT / 8pm CT

The mystery of the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel has fascinated people
through the ages. Explorers claim to have discovered evidence of the
"lost tribes" all over the world, from Australia to Siberia, but few if
any such claims have been backed up by solid evidence. But now a
provocative possibility about the whereabouts of one of the tribes has
emerged--and it's 4,000 miles from Israel--in Southern Africa.

Host and explorer Josh Bernstein retraces the amazing journey that the
Lemba people claim they made centuries ago. It stretches from the heart
of modern South Africa to the ancient stone cities of Zimbabwe...and
then onto the shores of the Mediterranean and the city of Jerusalem. And
the evidence for this journey is more than anecdotal.

As Josh discovers, recent DNA studies point to the Lemba's true origin
in the Middle East.
