Loren & Loch Ness on Video

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 26th, 2007

Someone has uploaded parts of the History Channel’s recent repeat of an episode of “Deep Sea Detectives” featuring great archival footage of recent cryptozoological discoveries, the program’s hosts diving at Loch Ness, and yours truly in my home-research office-museum.

Corrective footnote: Yes, I know that Loch Ness is six miles from the ocean, although I misspoke during one of the tapings, and too quickly said “mile” instead of “a few miles.” I do get excited in these interviews to try to share my down-to-earth passion for the topic.

For more on this subject see: The Field Guide to Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents, and Other Mystery Denizens of the Deep (NY: Tarcher/Penguin, 2003).

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.

    i saw this episode not long ago, in a lovely bit of synchronicity – i was flipping channels while actually reading a story on this website, and suddenly heard ‘Loch Ness’. then, lo and behold, there was Loren! 🙂 thanks for posting the clips. it was a good episode of the show, which i do enjoy too.

  2. hrstruggle responds:

    Great series! Never seen it before. So, have the recovered the supposed animal carcass that they pictured in this documentary?

    If not, when will they do that?

    If so, what did they find? It didn’t look very big from the picture, although I was probably mis-interpreting the scale of things.

  3. Ceroill responds:

    Interesting! I’ve seen other episodes of this series, and have always been impressed with the guys. I like their neutral stance, and willingness to at least look at various ideas. I didn’t know before about the microbial mats! That’s interesting. My first reaction on seeing the ‘carcass’ was log/stump. I’m leery of reading too much into it this soon. I thought the ‘flipper photo’ had been shown to be altered beyond just ‘enhancing’ to get that definite image. Very nice video postings, Loren, thanks.

  4. A responds:

    I was excited to see this link on boingboing. My boyfriend edited that episode! You were definitely my favorite expert in this one, Loren.

  5. Sharmz responds:

    I’m not sure if that’s a Nessie carcass. I guess any carcass in water would have been completely devoured by other marine life leaving only bones..

    Do Nessie feed on that microbial mats?

  6. thylo responds:

    i would like to know the status on the ‘carcass’ recovery as well.

  7. Lyndon responds:

    Great stuff. Listening to it right now. Thanks for posting this Loren.

  8. harleyb responds:

    Keep on keeping it real Loren and informing the world on all the great wonders of Cryptozoology.

  9. PhotoExpert responds:

    Good stuff!!!

  10. Tengu responds:

    I’ve been to Loch Ness several times, it’s surrounded by forest and is full of odd logs.

  11. Loren Coleman responds:

    Tengu writes that Loch Ness “is full of odd logs.”

    Yes, there may be a few but hardly “full” is a good descriptor. Nevertheless, regarding logs, the follow-up questions must then be:

    Do the logs in the loch “swim” against the wind and waves, as well as any currents?

    Do they dive down and surface, changing their overall configuration as they “swim”?

  12. Nasser responds:

    I loved watching that segment about the possible loch ness carcass. Could anyone out there please tell me the progress on the recovery and if so how can I get my hands on that documentry starring Robert Rines. I am surprised that such a discovery of new plant life, and a ship wreck were never posted on the news. Robert Rines really needs to be comended for his determination and passion despite his worries about running out of age. I do hope he manages to see his long life obsession with proving to the world that Nessie did at one point in life survied in Loch Ness.
