A California TV crew missing since November 2002, a video they left behind and a mission by U.S. Navy SEALs are the key elements in a story that claims extensive ancient ruins have been found under the ice of Antarctica. Thatâ€™s according toÂ archaeologistÂ and adventurer Jonathan Gray ofÂ World Education Research LtdÂ in his free newsletterÂ Archaeology News Flash.
A spokesman for the company is reported to have said at the time thatÂ â€œThe U.S. government said it will seek to block the airing of a video found by Navy rescuers in Antarctica that purportedly reveals that a massive archaeological dig is underway two miles (3,200 meters) beneath the ice.â€
â€œThe AtlantisTV production crew that shot theÂ video isÂ still missing.â€Â reports Gray.
Attorneys for the Beverly Hills-based AtlantisTV stressed at the time that the companyâ€™s primary concern was for the safety and welfare of the crew.
But they stated they would vigorously oppose any attempts toÂ censorÂ material that is clearly in the public interest and public domain.
The icy continent of Antarctica, they pointed out, belongs to no nation.Â “The U.S. has no jurisdiction there.â€
McMurdo Station Antarctica
â€œThatÂ video isÂ the property of AtlantisTV, said a company spokesman, We shot it. Itâ€™s ours. And as soon as it is rightfully restored to us, were going to air it. End of story.â€
WATCHED BY NAVY OFFICERS
â€œTwo Navy officers who saw the tape described its contents to National Science Foundation (NSF) researchers upon their return to the Amundsen-Scott Station at the South Pole,â€Â asserts Gray in his recent newsletter.
So reported sources at McMurdo Station, the main American base in Antarctica.â€They said it showed spectacular ruins and other things they couldnâ€™t go into”, an NSF scientist reported.
â€œWe chalked it up to some kind of subzero-induced delusion,â€Â he said,Â â€œuntil a helicopter full ofNavy SEALsÂ landed and picked them up and took off. Now, were scratching our heads.â€
Officials of the U.S. Naval Support Task Force in Antarctica predictably denied the story orÂ the possessionÂ of any video shot by the missing AtlantisTV crew.
Navy sources said they found the video in an abandoned supply dump 100 miles (160 kilometers) west of Vokstok Station.

The international team comprises researchers from the United States, and several other, are from various European countries. Two of the huge pyramid structures were found approximately 10 miles inland, the third one not far from the coastline, clearly visible from ocean.
The team are currently planning an expedition to reach one of the pyramids to find out if it is a natural or an artificial structure.
