Leigh “That Guy” Hart’s Mysterious Planet: The World’s Greatest Unsolved Mysteries – a mockumentary – was broadcast last week in New Zealand. Perhaps it was also seen in Australia and some parts (?) of the UK.
Cryptomundo would like to hear from others who have seen this complete program, with your unbiased reviews. You may send them in via the comments section or via the Cryptomundo contact form. Thank you.
I realize that Mr. Hart will not mind this additional appearance on Cryptomundo, just as we don’t mind his noting Cryptomundo’s spot-on reporting on his adventures.

Caption published by the Ohio newspaper: Area Bigfoot authority Don Keating is interviewed by Leigh Hart, host of Mysterious Planet, a New Zealand television series dealing with strange phenomenon. The interview was during the 21st annual Bigfoot Conference/Expo Saturday at Salt Fork Resort and Conference Center. Filming is videographer Brent Spillane. (Actually, of course, this is Hart pulling off his elaborate mockumentary filming; read more here: Kiwi adventures.)
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. 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. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
