Battle cries, shadows, and strange noises are all reported to emanate from the center of what's called the Menengai Crater. Then, Josh and the team visit Madagascar, in search of the small but dangerous creature, the Kalanoro.  Stories of the mischievous Kalanoro date back 2,000 years, but recent sightings imply the dangerous, two-foot tall, humanoid monster may be back. Find out what Josh and his team of experts find in this all new episode.

Diana: The True Story:Monday, April 25 at 12pm ET/PT
Dubbed the 'Fairy-Tale Princess’, Diana proved a lonely and sad life as the insecurities she felt as a child were consolidated by her hollow marriage to Prince Charles. Family and friends provide an insight into how Diana filled the void in her emotional life with her children and the charitable causes she chose to support.

Princess Anne Biography:Tuesday, April 26 at 12pm ET/PT
British Princess Royal, the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, born in London, UK. Princess Anne was previously married to Lieutenant Mark Phillips, but later divorced in 1992 with two children: Peter Mark Andrew and Zara Anne Elizabeth. She later married Timothy Laurence in 1992. An accomplished horsewoman, she has ridden in the British Equestrian Team, and was European cross-country champion in 1972. She is a keen supporter of charities and overseas relief work; as president of Save the Children Fund, a member of the International Olympic Committee and president of the British Olympic Association.
Prince Harry Biography:Wednesday, April 27 at 12pm ET/PT
Prince Harry is third in line to the British throne. As the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, the fun loving Prince enjoys the kind of freedom his elder brother (and future King) William, can only dream of. Harry was just 8 when his parents separated and 12 when his mother was killed in a tragic car crash. The world will never forget his one mile walk behind Diana's coffin on the day of her final journey. Educated at Eton and trained at Sandhurst, Harry's credentials as a member of the Royal House of Windsor are impeccable. But, at just 17, the young Prince hit the headlines when he admitted to underage drinking and experimenting with marijuana; it was the kind of bad press that has cast a shadow over Britain's third in line to the throne. Today, Harry divides his time between the Army and various charitable works.
Prince Charles Biography:Thursday, April 28 at 12pm ET/PT
Prince Charles, son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, ascended the royal hierarchy at an early age. His mother became queen when he was only three after the death of his grandfather King George VI. As her oldest child, Charles became the heir apparent to the British throne and received the title of Duke of Cornwall. As a public figure, Charles came off to many as intelligent, aloof, and a bit awkward. He was used to having every move he made scrutinized by the press, but even he could not have been imagined what a sensation his relationship with Lady Diana Spencer would cause. They were married in 1981.Unfortunately; their common love for their children was not enough to hold the fairy tale marriage together. The couple officially separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996. After years of quietly maintaining their relationship, Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005. She then became the Duchess of Cornwall.

Kate Middleton Biography:Friday, April 29 at 12pm ET/PT
Get to know the future Princess in this Canadian television premiere. Although she's set to marry
England's Prince William in the wedding of the century, Kate Middleton is an unlikely choice for a royal bride since a commoner hasn't married an heir to the throne for 350 years. But while she may lack royal blood, she has another advantage -- a family history of ambition and determination that has propelled the Middleton’s from the depths of a British coal mine to WindsorCastle. We look at how Kate's drive has helped her to survive paparazzi hounding, nasty media nicknames, and a humiliating public break-up.
