When marine biologist Dr Brian McCormick (Sean C. Michael) stumbled across a recording of mysterious underwater sounds, he launched a scientific investigation to uncover the creature responsible. In search of conclusive proof, he and his research team are called out to an unusual whale stranding in South Africa. Here they find the part digested remains of an animal none of them can identify. As each of its body parts is autopsied, they provide new pieces of the puzzle. As the picture builds, McCormick is drawn to an astonishing conclusion: this new marine creature is related to humans.

True or not true
30 September 2012 | by dwbeckerSee all my reviews

Im just a simple computer guy I love history and mythical stories. This mermaid documentary caught my attention I saw those closed websites you see on all the articles a guy with my background I can probable research a website a little more then the average person all the websites shows as shutdown by homeland security are in fact owned by the discovery channel. Now answer me why would Dr Paul Robertson's personal website be owned by the Discovery channel? That piece of evidence alone shows me one financial reason to create a back story for the show. While entertaining, I would love to entertain the ideal of real life mermaids. However this particular show to me shows a lot of work to make. What could be a true story has a lot of hidden un-truees. Have fun! You never know what's on TV I am a found believer do your own research I don't believe everything I see or read.
