German distributor ZDF Enterprises has sold historical documentary Carthage’s Lost Warriors to WNET/Thirteen, SBS and S4C.

The one-hour doc, produced by ZDF subsidiary doc.station GmbH and ZDF/Arte, sets out to prove that South America was settled by Mediterranean seafarers more than 2,000 years ago. The program hypothesizes that during the Roman attacks on Carthage around 150 BC, some survivors may have escaped Roman slavery and crossed the Atlantic into South America.

In the doc, molecular geneticist Manfred Kayser uses technology to hypothesize that the light-haired, fair-skinned people found in remote Indian villages in the Andes could be direct descendants of Celtic warriors.

Presales of Carthage’s Lost Warriors have been made to S4C Wales, SBS Australia  and WNET/Thirteen for the PBS strand Secrets of the Dead.
