Graham Hancock was formerly East Africa correspondent for The Economist and a correspondent for the London Sunday Times. His The Sign and the Seal, an international bestseller, documented his real-life quest for the Ark of the Covenant. He has appeared on television with Michael Palin in his Pole to Pole series, and on the BBC and CNN, as well as the National Geographic’s Explorer series.
"I always wanted to do a biblical flood movie, but I never felt I
had the hook. I first read about the Earth's Crust Displacement
Theory in Graham Hancock's Fingerprints of the Gods."
—Roland Emmerich, Director "2012" in an interview from Time Out London
