Arlington, VA; November 14, 2012 - PBS Distribution today announced it is releasing "HISTORY DETECTIVES: SEASON 10" on DVD. "HISTORY DETECTIVES" is devoted to exploring the complexities of historical mysteries and searching out the facts, myths and conundrums that connect local folklore, family legends and interesting objects. Traditional investigative techniques, modern technologies and plenty of legwork are the tools the "HISTORY DETECTIVES" team of experts uses to provide insights into our national history. This three-disc set will be available on DVD December 11, 2012 for the suggested retail price of $29.99. The combined run time of all three discs is 540 minutes.

"HISTORY DETECTIVES: SEASON 10" features America's top gumshoes proving that objects found in an attic or backyard might be anything but ordinary. Could these top experts have found the long-lost electric Fender Stratocaster Bob Dylan plugged in at the '65 Newport Folk Festival? They also track down some autographs allegedly signed during the Beatles' legendary U.S. tour in 1964, the story behind an old 78rpm distributed by K.K.K. Records, and an old Woolworth sign that may have been part of the scene at the 1960 Winston-Salem lunch-counter sit-ins. Top experts leave no stone unturned as they travel around the country to explore other findings such as details behind the heroic acts pictured in a poster about two African American soldiers in World War I and a hand-drawn map of Valley Forge that George Washington could have used. "HISTORY DETECTIVES: SEASON 10" has many more findings -- something for everyone to enjoy, watching as the mysteries becomes uncovered.
