Secrets of the Dead is a PBS television series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York. The show generally follows an investigator or team of investigators exploring what modern science can tell us about some of the great mysteries of history. Most programs incorporate primary source material, first hand accounts, dramatic reenactments, and computer-generated imagery (CGI) to tell the story.

Episode topics have included the Titanic, D-Day, the Shroud of Turin, the Salem Witch Trials, and the first English translations of the Bible.

The series premiered on May 15, 2000, airing four programs in three days (the first episode, concerning the Extreme weather events of 535–536, was a two-parter).[1] Despite an irregular schedule, new episodes continue to air.[2]
