Editorial Reviews

Since 1884 Bigfoot has provoked controversy within the scientific community as the most-sighted mythical beast in the world. Is he real or merely a popular legend passed on through the generations? Venture deep into the Pacific Northwest on this amazing search for Bigfoot which cuts through the dense forest of dubious sightings commercialization and outright fraud to uncover the truth about the great ape-like creature. Tracing reports back thousands of years this highly entertaining and enlightening program examines the mystery of the beast the Indians knew only as "Sasquatch." Narrated by Leonard Nimoy A&E presents the most comprehensive investigation of Bigfoot ever produced. Utilizing an innovative high-tech approach today's anthropologists offer a fresh perspective on hard evidence as presented through archival footage computer analysis and modern eyewitness video. DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

3.0 out of 5 stars Conclusion: Bigfoot is real. August 18, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This video includes the famous '67 Patterson/Gimlin film; that's one good thing about it. But it also includes (Big)footage of something you can't make out what is. It's filmed through trees and bushes, and it really could be just about anything. The two guys who apparently lensed it are interviewed, and they come across as being very used to the situation of being on camera. Their piece of film shows, and proves nothing. A staged field-search with Sasquatch investigator Peter Byrne is also shown. My comments make me sound like a disbeliever, I know, but in reality I firmly believe these creatures are real... I'm talking about Bigfoot now, ofcourse. The many sightings can't be lies, bears, or men in (black) suits all of them !. And then there's the featured Patterson/Gimlin film. -If it's a hoax, why hasn't Gimlin had enough fun, and said so yet ?. (As far as I know, he's not making any money on the film.) -Gimlin and his friend were just two very lucky men, that glorious day back in '67. The scientists who dismiss the film as a prank, will have to eat their unscientific words one fine day. -And I can't wait!. If it's such a clever hoax, surely there would have been dozens of (better) faked, and filmed "high tech" Bigfoots by now, don't you think ?. -And just why have we not seen that ?. -Naturally because no one could, and this object is authentic. Conclusion: Bigfoot is alive and well, walking this way, and living in your own backyard. Still, "serious science" doesn't seem to care. Go figure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A&E Ancient Mysteries July 28, 2006
Format:DVD
This is the Bigfoot episode of A&E's Ancient Mysteries series. I have this recorded on VHS and will end up comparing content between the vhs and the dvd in the future. None-the-less, this Leonard Nimoy narrated episode is done quite well if not brief. It's less than 50 minutes long and there are no extras. The show itself is one of the better ones on the subject matter of bigfoot. Main sources for this documentary are from the late Grover Krantz and Peter Byrne with his former Bigfoot Research Project out of Mt Hood, OR. It includes the Scott Herriett/Daryl Owen video footage of a purported bigfoot in the bushes; I however have never "seen" what the hell it is they say is a bigfoot in their video (even with the computer enhancement version, I just don't see it) and I've never seen much further coverage of it anywhere but this show. This episode originally aired in 1994 and lightly revamped in 1997, I recommend this for your bigfoot collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different from the tape.. May 2, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had the vhs version of this documentary several years ago, and when I saw it was coming out on DVD I hoped it was the same one.

It was, and yet it wasn't. The one I had did not have Leonard Nimoy as the narrator. I forget who he was, but his voice was more suited to the material than Nimoy's. I also noticed that some material has been added, as well as cut from the original.

It may well be that the vhs version was the revised one, and that the one with Leonard Nimoy was the original, I don't know.

But anyway, this is a very good Bigfoot film and well worth your time and money.If you get hold of the vhs version, you'll see what I mean about the differences.

5.0 out of 5 stars The creature exists! October 27, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I am a fanatic of Bigfoot lore and have several books on the subject. I jumped at the chance to buy this video, and it was an excellent production. Leonard Nimoy provides an excellent narrative that flows along well with the five parts in the documentary. There have been too many sightings all over the country for this to be a hoax. It is a primitive form of primate that has yet to be documented. New species are being discovered on a daily basis, even as crowded as our planet is becoming with human population. There is a lot of territory in the Pacific Northwest that man has never set foot on, and still plenty of room for a few thousand of these creatures to roam virtually undetected until one or more of them stumbles upon a camper, hiker or a hunter. This is probably the best documentary I have seen on the subject, covering the Indian lore of Bigfoot, looking at it from a scientific approach through Grover Krantz's analysis, seeing the Patterson-Gimlin film, and even the commercial aspects of Bigfoot in Willow Creek, California. A must see for the Bigfoot fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Bigfoot Documentary January 1, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is probably the best documentary on Bigfoot that has ever been done before. It almost treats it as if Bigfoot does exist. There is even one part in the film where they try to give an accurate analysis of the lifestyle of this creature. If you are, like me, into cryptozoology or a Bigfoot enthusiast, then this video is for you. I would recommend buying this video now because I truly believe Bigfoot will be "discovered" and proven to be an unknown species of ape that survived the Ice-Age and has remained hidden up until the Twenty-First Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Jump the next plane to the Pacific Northwest! July 23, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Ok, so not everyone's enthralled with the Bigfoot phenomena, but let's face it, there are many of us who eat this stuff up! This is the first video I've purchased on the subject and enjoyed it thoroughly (that Patterson video footage is creepy...)! The eccentric Peter Byrne (a former big-game hunter who headed up an expedition called "The Bigfoot Research Project" from 1993-97) offers some interesting views on the Sasquatch subject. Narrator Leonard Nimoy also engrosses you into the subject matter. I most enjoyed Dr. Grover Krantz's (a university professor) theories and views on the Patterson film. There was some footage included from a 1992 sighting which I have some reservations about (two yahoos see a pair of Sasquatch eyeballs peering at them through the foliage). But, overall, a VERY enjoyable 50 minutes and it definitely leaves you hungry for more.
