The 50-Year-Long Hyperdimensional Journeys of an Emmy Award-Winning South African Filmmaker and Producer ….
My guest tonight is Emmy Award-winning producer and New York Times bestselling author, Lionel Friedberg.
Lionel has spent over 50 years making films — from full-length theatrical features, to television series and classic documentaries. Friedberg grew up in South Africa during the “troubled era” of apartheid and bitter interracial strife, ultimately beginning his filmmaking career during the dying days of 19th Century colonialism in Central Africa.
He eventually moved to Los Angeles — where his work ranged from the sound stages of “classic” Hollywood, to the remotest regions of the Earth.
In the process, Friedberg’s film documentation of his surroundings exposed him to the extraordinary wonders of our planet, and brought him into close contact with many unforgettable personalities — from maverick scientists to politicians, from well-known entertainers to people who literally survived near-death experiences and lived to tell him the most intimate details ….
Lionel’s life-long observations have taught him that, like British biologist Haldane’s often-quoted observation about the Universe–
Life is “far more complex — and infinitely stranger — than we can even begin to imagine ….”
Lionel Friedberg is the man who brought us the classic television shows with names such as “Ancient Mysteries,” “Mysteries of the Bible” and “Histories Mysteries.” His latest book brings us on an adventure into Shamanism, Near-Death Experiences, interviews with the Dead, UFO encounters … and all manner of other strange paranormal (read “Hyperdimensional”) experiences in-between.
Join us tonight … for one man’s unforgettable “Hyperdimensional Lifetime Journey” ….

Emmy Award-winning producer and New York Times bestselling author Lionel Friedberg has spent 50 years making films as diverse as full-length theatrical features and television documentaries. After growing up in South Africa during the troubled era of apartheid, he began his career during the dying days of colonialism in Central Africa.
Friedberg eventually settled in Los Angeles, where his work took him to the sound stages of Hollywood and to the most remote regions of the Earth. His career exposed him to the extraordinary wonders of our planet and brought him into close contact with many unforgettable personalities -- from maverick scientists to politicians, from well-known entertainers to people who literally survived near-death experiences.
His life-long observations have taught him that life is far more complex and infinitely stranger than we can imagine. Example: when he was struck by an unexpected life-threatening illness, his efforts to find a way to save his life took him back to Africa, where he encountered the age-old rituals and powerful healing methods of African shaman. In his direct experience, their mysterious ways have much to teach us and are as relevant today as they were in ancient times.
Lionel Friedberg is the man who brought us television shows such as Ancient Mysteries, Mysteries of the Bible and Histories Mysteries -- for the Discovery Channel, the History Channel and National Geographic. His latest book brings on an adventure into Shamanism, Near-Death experiences, interviews with the Dead, UFO encounters. .. and all manner of other strange "paranormal" (read "Hyperdimensional") experiences in between ....
