There really should be a “Cryptozoology Channel” on cable television, but until that happens, you can find great nights like tonight, Monday, January 7, 2008, and overnight into Tuesday.
For six hours tonight, three cryptozoology-oriented programs on the Hobbit, Sasquatch, and Champ will be broadcast on the Discovery Channel.
Here is the evening schedule. The same three programs are repeated in the wee hours of the night in the East tomorrow morning, Tuesday, Janurary 8th, as well as during the evening out West. Check your local listings.
8:00 pm Eastern USA Time
The Mystery of the Human Hobbit
It was the most striking scientific discovery of last year. An entirely new species of mini-human found on an island in Indonesia. Is the hobbit a new species that transforms our view of evolution, or is it simply a very small, modern human being?
9:00 pm Eastern USA Time
Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science
The legend of a North American Ape species known as Sasquatch, Bigfoot and Yeti has been around since recorded time. Even today, sighting and physical evidence are gathered on a regular basis. Is this creature fact or fiction?
10:00 pm Eastern USA Time
America’s Loch Ness Monster
Bordering New York and Vermont and known as America’s Loch Ness, Lake Champlain is home to a monster named Champ. Experts use the latest technology in an attempt to prove the existence of this giant, sea serpent-like creature.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
