DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S UNWRAPPING THE SHROUD: NEW EVIDENCE (wt) RE-OPENS ONE OF CHRISTIANITY'S GREATEST MYSTERIES, DECEMBER 14 AT 10PM ET/PT

The Shroud of Turin is one of the great enduring mysteries of all time, with its authenticity debated for years. Many believe it's the burial cloth of Jesus and the only physical link to Him, while others maintain that it is nothing more than an elaborate hoax. In fact, in 1988, a team of scientists radiocarbon dated the Shroud and concluded it was fake, dating back to the Middle Ages (1290-1360), long after Jesus was crucified. And that's where the story stood, unchallenged -- until now. Discovery Channel's one-hour original special UNWRAPPING THE SHROUD: NEW EVIDENCE (wt) attempts to unravel the truth about the cloth on Sunday, December 14, 2008 from 10-11PM ET/PT.

The special event features the story of Ray Rogers, a respected chemist from the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and member of the original team of scientists who examined the Shroud. Rogers came across a paper written by a husband and wife from Columbus, Ohio that claimed the 1988 radiocarbon dating was inaccurate. According to the couple, the test sample that was used had been taken from a section of the Shroud that had been repaired in the 16th Century, skewing the results. Expecting to prove this couple wrong, Rogers went back to examine the sample of the Shroud he tested years earlier, and what he found astonished even himself. In his last days (he had been battling cancer), Rogers made a video � which before now has never been seen � detailing his conclusions.

Shot entirely in high-definition, UNWRAPPING THE SHROUD: NEW EVIDENCE (wt) examines Rogers' findings and how they may unlock a mystery thousands of years in the making.

UNWRAPPING THE SHROUD: NEW EVIDENCE (wt) is filled with twists and turns, science and faith, and iron-clad evidence that may turn out to be less than meets the eye. The special is produced for Discovery Channel by Darlow Smithson Productions. Brooke Runnette serves as Executive Producer from Discovery Channel.
