December 21st, 2012 is the date ancient Mayans believed would be the end of time. The Mayan civilisation died out thousands of year ago, yet still this archaic prophecy has attracted followers from multiple faiths and philosophies around the world, spawned countless conspiracy theories and fed a multi-million dollar industry in extreme survival guides. As the clock ticks down on the prophesy that spells the end of the world perhaps this is the one programme you need to listen to. Producer: Phil Pegum.
