Belize on the History Channel

belize on the history channelTune into the History Channel on August 17th at 8pm to watch a documentary on the Belize Maya called “Gates of Hell” and discover actual portals into the Underworld. Caves, volcanoes, and lakes of fire – all were believed by the ancients to be gateways into Hell itself.

Earlier this year, a company called “Red Marble Media”, filmed in Belize (as well as Nicaragua, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, and across the US) for a commissioned two-hour History Channel special originally called “Portals to the Underworld.”

The documentary charts historical thoughts and beliefs about the afterlife from the ancient Maya to modern Christianity. Producers traveled to places that were once believed to be sacred portals to spiritual realms of which Belize was one and used interviews with experts and artistic depictions of the Underworld from throughout the ages for the project.

According to Courtney Engelstein, Development Producer of Red Marble Media, “The show looks fantastic, and the segment in Belize is beautiful, compelling, and creepy.”

Tune in to the program to learn more.
