National Geographic has commissioned British indie Caravan to produce a two-hour docu-special aiming to reveal the truth behind some of the stories found in the Old Testament.

Directed by Nigel Walk, The Bible From Space (wt) will feature Nat Geo explorer and expert in remote sensing Albert Lin (pictured, from Lost Treasures of the Maya Snake Kings), who will guide viewers on a journey through the Holy Lands, examining the historical events that might be behind biblical stories such as the Exodus, the parting of the Red Sea, and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Lin will travel through the deserts of the Middle East with a mobile laboratory, working with archaeologists to carry out new scientific research using satellite imagery, multi-spectral analysis, magnetometry, aerial photogrammetry and detective work to find answers hidden for thousands of years.

For Caravan, executive producers are Dinah Lord and Matthew Barrett. The series producer is Matthew Thompson. For National Geographic, Simon Raikes is executive producer.

The Bible From Space will premiere in 2019 on National Geographic in 172 countries.
