Storyline

Leonard Nimoy hosted this quasi-documentary television show which portrayed unusual natural phenomena and 'investigated' the paranormal. Its style of interspersing 'talking heads' with sensationalistic video segments may have been the forerunner of 'info-tainment.' Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

In Search Of
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series was great.

I would like to have it on DVD.

If they ever remake or redistribute it. Subject material included vanished civilization, Atlantis The Bermuda Triangle Stone hinge Etc. A must have for anyone with kids. Anyone interested in history of our planet or of the people who lived here. Get others opinions on how mysterious lake sand other ruins were made. In depth details on how the Incan civilization performed brain surgery. How Aliens may have helped build the pyramids. Leonard Nimoy narrated the series which ran for Aprox. 10 years.
