Feeling lost? Having a hard time keeping up with what's happening on the Island? ABC has the remedy for what ails you by inviting both new and avid "Lost" viewers to take an insider's look at the most talked about, critically acclaimed show on television. "Lost: A Tale of Survival" will explore the series in a way that will bring new viewers up to date, but which current viewers will also find illuminating. From the back stories of some of the most compelling characters on television to the mysteries of the island, "Lost: A Tale of Survival" will provide an insightful glimpse into the lives of the survivors of Oceanic Airlines flight 815, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

After Oceanic Flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a Pacific island, its survivors were forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. As they struggled to adapt, they also discovered that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, a strange French woman and another group of island residents known as "The Others". The survivors have also found signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th century sailing ship called the Black Rock, the remains of an ancient statue and bunkers belonging to the Dharma Initiative, a group of scientific researchers.

Season One dealt with the fuselage survivors, the Hatch and a failed attempt to get off the island. Season Two continued these stories and also introduced viewers to Desmond - the man responsible for inputting the numbers into the hatch computer system -- the survivors of the tail section and Henry Gale, who turned out to be the leader of "The Others." "Lost: A Tale of Survival" puts these two seasons together in a linear fashion to provide an illuminating view on a compelling story. See the sequence of events in the aftermath of the crash of flight 815, the failed raft attempt, the opening of the hatch, how the tail section and fuselage survivors lived separately and the unwitting intersections of their lives in one catastrophic moment, the implosion of the hatch and the capture of Jack, Kate and Sawyer by "The Others." Discover how and why some of the survivors lost their lives and the effects of their deaths on their fellow castaways. In addition, the island itself will be explored - culled from events that have taken place - which may reveal even more of its secrets.
