Six Hours of Cryptozoology TV

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 7th, 2008

TV Alert

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
(60 minutes)
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
(60 minutes)
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
(60 minutes)
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 About Loren Coleman
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.

    It’s not “I.”

    It’s “aye,” as in: “Och aye, it’s Nessie!”

    What? No mention that Saturday night, SciFi ran a series of “Cryptozoology” based Creature Features? They led off the night with at least one (maybe two) bigfoot movies. Then they showed the new movie “Beyond Loch Ness” – or something like that. It was hilarious.

    [INSTANT MODERATOR REPLY…Mention was made of Beyond Loch Ness and a separate blog was posted on that movie, with comments from readers here.]

    I actually thought these were solid programs. The Sasquatch program seemed to me to be more thorough and balanced than most. I appreciated the careful, mixed-media approach that they took to the research. Better than sooooo many of the others I have seen. The Champ deal was pretty darned decent, IMHO, too (despite Joe Nickel’s flawed segment — just my opinion, Joe). Thoughts?

  10. johnstownmonster responds:

    And I also want to put in my “Aye.”

  11. cryptidsrus responds:

    Aye, Aye!!!
