Today, March 12th, in 1996, The United Paramount Network (UPN) needed a huge premier for its new TV show The Paranormal Borderline. They had the perfect video, a Sasquatch regaining it's balance and walking up a snow bank.

Unfortunately the segment producer for The Paranormal Borderline was also behind Alien Autopsy: (Fact or Fiction?). Both films were admitted hoaxes. You can see the footage from the TV show in the two videos below.





It is often reported that Dr. Jeff Meldrum was quoted on the show as saying, "We're talking about an individual somewhere between 8 to 10 feet tall in height..." This may not be the entire story. You Tube user Spiko7 reached out to Dr. Jeff Meldrum, who claims his suspicion of the video were edited out:

"They traveled to Mammoth Ski resort in California and edited in stock footage of the Himalayan panoramas. I was the one who initially analyzed it. We had some suspicions qualifying our speculations, which were selectively edited out of the documentary interviews. In follow up research, the videographer came forward and admitted the prank. The producers needed a hook for the premier episode of Paranormal Borderline and hired the guy to fabricate something. It's a hoax, plain and simple."
