Urban Myth Passed Off As Scientific Fact
5 April 2019 | by StantonDrewSee all my reviews

Nine minutes in to the very first episode, one of the experts shares an anecdote about an explorers club in 1950 cooking up the frozen carcass of the long-extinct mammoth. It is presented, without question, as an actual true event to help illustrate how long flesh can survive for in the right conditions.

Except, this never happened. It was a hoax by the chef. A sample of the meal was subsequently tested and shown to be sea turtle. The myth though, still persists and this show has tried to turn that myth into scientific fact.

So my question is: if, in the first 9 minutes of a 20 episode show they make this glaring error / lie, then what else that they present as fact is also nonsense?

It completely destroyed any credibility this show had. Shame, because the subject matter itself is fascinating
