Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide on the History Channel

**Newer Update (2/1/11)** Finally got an actual image from the show (see below). SRC: Seattle Times
Plus read Loren Colemans contribution to the show at Cryptomundo.



**UPDATE (1/31/11)** One of our astute fans provided us with a link with more info. Experts on the show will include: Drs. Jack Rink, Anna Nekaris, William Sellars, Jeff Meldrum, and Ian Redmond. Click on the ISU link below to get more info.

This is what we do know. It will be on the History Channel on Feb 2nd, They shot most of the footage in a Canadian town named Harrington, and they are using a scene from Jack Links Jerky to promote the show.



There is the official description as well:
A team of top scientists come together with one goal to create the definitive guide to Bigfoot. Does the creature exist? And if it does where is it? And how can it survive without being detected? Using a new interactive map the team has plotted more than 10,000 Bigfoot type sightings from around the world. These sightings are of an unidentified creature which walks on two legs and is covered in a thick layer of hair. Many of theses sightings date back over 100 years. With their expert knowledge of the natural world they are able to dismiss nearly 90% of the sightings, but what emerges is a series of global hotspots that cannot be explained which indicate that something is out there. The team examines these global hotspots and searches for explanations including new theories that suggest we may have been looking for the wrong creature all along?

In Ontario, Quebec, a local paper asked the Production manager about the show.

The documentary will focus on prehistoric times and will include discussion about "mythical" creatures such as the Sasquatch and Yeti.

According to Helen Conlan, production manager for the United Kingdom-based company, Dangerous, the documentary will not make light of the myths and legends that surround the creature, but will instead explore the possibility that such creatures might actually exist.

"We brought numerous experts from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom together to research this," she stated in an e-mail interview. "Our goal is to retrace the steps of early man and shed some light of the legends that surround Bigfoot and the Yeti. I think the end result will be a very interesting and enlightening film."

Conlan said the show will be called Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide and was co-produced with Handel Productions, one of Canada's leading producers of factual television and documentary programs.

She said numerous experts on the subject were interviewed in an attempt to find a scientific base for Bigfoot.


We can't wait to see what will make this show different than the other shows out there.

  2. I suspect they'll talk about mice and rodents consuming carcasses (entirely). Often morons on these shows will say: How come we don't find any bones?

    I can't for the life of me figure out why people don't do what I've done. . which is drop bones in a deep dark canyon and see how long it takes rodents to make them disappear. (On average. . .a matter of days.) I do hope this show will show me something new. . .I've been studying this phenomenon for 35 years. .

  3. I should have known that these so called experts,would come up with a wild man or prehistoric man theory,as a mushroom hunter in the Pacific Northwest,I know what I've seen not once but twice is neither.I am a educated well versed person that you can call crazy if you want but neither time did I feel Bigfoot to be a threat,a little scary yes,but something I think about every day.

  4. Where can I learn more about the "caveman" shot by the Russian soldiers. That seems to me that this would be a huge story.

    It was on the History Channel Big Foot Definitive Guide, yet I am having trouble finding documentation of this event.

    Thoughts? Comments? Any web-sites with more info than just show in this DVD?

    Thanks for any help.

  5. Please post on the web the interactive map of that the team has plotted of more than 10000 Bigfoot type sightings. Post your research so that it can be expanded and used.

  7. I have seen footprints and have seen bedding they make while hiking the pacific N.W. panning for gold.If you have never been in this type of woods you would not understand why their bones aren't laying in the city park. They have had aircraft crash in these mountains and have never been found.I would also think that you didn't know that the western U.S. are mini continients that drifted here from other countries.Do some reseach

    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if
    you don't mind. Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of the comments look like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you list of every one of your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
