If you have interests, wonder, and want to explore your world more then enjoy the hair-raising experience that "Ancient Mysteries with Leonard Nimoy" provides and the Bigfoot episode is a must see.
2 January 2001 | by (Oakwood, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

I remember back in (1993) on A@E I watched "Ancient Mysteries with Leonard Nimoy" and I was greatly impressed. Nimoy has the voice and talent to host any show he wants. Mainly I was delighted to see the Bigfoot episode done in documentary style it provides all the historical information, pictures of sightings, interviews with witnesses and theories from the experts and a detailed discussion on the 1967 California sighting of Bigfoot at Bluff Creek commonly known as the "Paterson Film". Sadly A@E no longer airs "Ancient Mysteries" I hated to see this show go it is educational and interesting and at the same time creepy. The Bigfoot episode due to it's popularity can still be found in video form. If you're like me and have great interest and want to know many things about Bigfoot this is a must see.
