The first edition looks at unusual beliefs concerning the Nazis, including the idea that Adolf Hitler escaped death in 1945 and left the corpse of a double behind to fool the rest of the world. Plus, theories surrounding the whereabouts of gold looted by the Nazis and never seen again

Some people believe he escaped justice, while others think he too was later murdered.

But there are those who claim that the murder of his brother Robert six years later was the next chapter of that chilling story.

S1 E11 • Drugs, Pop, Punk and Death
Some of the craziest conspiracy theories have come from the music world where drugs, rock, punk and death collide – and anything goes. In 1967 the career of The Rolling Stones seemed to be over when both Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were busted for drugs and sentenced to jail. For years people have wondered who was behind the tip-off that LSD was being taken at Keith’s country pad. Now Conspiracy can reveal a new theory. The Stones were the victims of an FBI hit with their alleged agent, drug dealer turned informant ‘Acid King Dave’. Dave set up the raid for the FBI so that the Stones would get criminal records, which would bar them from America and prevent the risk that they might corrupt innocent US youth. Ten years later, it was the turn of the Sex Pistols to suffer the wrath of the establishment. The anti-establishment anthem God Save the Queen was heading to number one on the week of the Queen’s Jubilee. We reveal the claims that it never got there because the charts were rigged, making sure Rod Stewart got the top spot. Perhaps the most bizarre conspiracy theory in the world of rock is the claim that the 70’s power pop group Eddy and the Hot Rods saw their careers destroyed by a black magic curse placed on them by none other than Jimmy Page, the genius guitarist of Led Zeppelin, all over the use of an altered image of occultist Aleister Crowley.
S1 E12 • The Lockerbie Plot
Can we trust the people who govern our countries? On Conspiracy – did the Nazis burn down their own parliament so they could seize power in Germany? Did national governments conspire to hide who really bombed Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie? Was the U.S. Government behind the greatest and most horrific act of terrorism ever on American soil? And did the UK Government exploit a threat of a deadly poison attack in Britain, so it could justify going to war? Some believe so, and in this episode we explore these conspiracy theories.
