2003. It was a Thursday night exactly ten years ago today when a documentary film, “Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science,” aired on the Discovery Channel. The program featured scientists from various disciplines analyzing the most compelling evidence. Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science was produced by Doug Hajicek with White Wolf Entertainment, the same people who brought us Monster Quest. It is narrated by the distinctive voice of Stacy Keach.

The documentary can be defined by the analyses of three pieces of Sasquatch footage and 17 categories of evidence.

The three pieces of footage were the Patterson/Gimlin film, the Freeman footage and the Memorial Day footage. The 17 different categories of evidence included: fossil evidence, new species discoveries, dermal ridges, the Sasquatch body, images, step frequency, biomechanics, forensic measurements, Patterson-Gimlin film, behavior parallels, vocalizations, visual misidentification, track morphology, kinesiology, soft tissue pathology, statistics, and DNA.

Read about each of the 6 experts involved in the documentary at Bigfoot Lunch Club.

    Who are the people that are offering 10 million dollar for hard proof Sasquatch is real?

    I’ve seen this documentary many times, one of my favorites. However the one problem I have is the part that Dr. Esteban Sarmiento was examining the skookum cast.

    He’s got the spectacles, black light, etc and is looking for hair…and hey that’s great, but not when you got a mop of hair that is dangling into to the casting and dragging all over it…geesh! Hate to see this guy cooking in a restaurant 😉

    What kills me is ya got Dr. Meldrum watching him doing this and doesn’t say a word…all the degrees these guys have and no one says “how bout a hair net before you dive in there?”

    Then he proclaims ” oh I’ve found a human hair” what a shock, doc. 🙂

    This is the documentary that changed my opinion of the Patterson-Gimlin film, and firmly established my position of cautious optimism about the existence of bigfoot.

  4. maslo63 responds:

    Echoing what John just said, this documentary and the book are what made me a believer of sasquatch long after I gave up on other cryptids. My belief in sasquatch has greatly diminished since then but “Sasquatch: Legend meets Science” has helped to at least maintain my curiosity and hopefulness.

    Producer Doug Hajicek is a class act.
