"Dark Matters: Twisted But True" Season 2 on Science Channel returns to the laboratory to unearth history's most sinister tales.

Hosted by the incomparable John Noble ("Fringe," "Lord of the Rings"), the series opens forbidden research records on the most shocking scientific studies ever executed. From gruesome lobotomy experiments, to controversial CIA studies, to spine-chilling accounts of live human transplants, the all-new season shows that science fact can be stranger — and even more entertaining — than science fiction. The six world premiere episodes take audiences inside a real-life Twilight Zone, where shocking CGI re-creations illustrate unforgettable tales of genius gone horribly awry.

The series premiere features a controversial look at one of America's most celebrated figures, asking the question, "Could Charles Lindbergh have been a Nazi?" Lindbergh's fascination with the study of eugenics and Nazi practices led some historians to believe he was preparing for an American Nazi uprising. Viewers also will be introduced to history's most terrifying tune, the infamous Hungarian "suicide song." Believed responsible for more than a dozen self-inflicted deaths in Budapest, the song was later banned for 50 years by the BBC, but the legacy of this mortal melody lives on. Finally, when a tragic accident leaves a man with a gaping wound, he soon finds himself the unwitting subject of a live human organ transplant experiment.

"Dark Matters: Twisted But True" Season 2 is produced for Science by Wide-Eyed Entertainment. Dan Gold is executive producer for Wide-Eyed Entertainment. Rocky Collins is executive producer and Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production for Science.
