This historic documentary, produced for the prestigious Smithsonian Institution by the venerable film maker David L. Wolper, was the first time the taboo subjects of the Loch Ness Monster, the Abominable Snowman known in the Himalayas as "Yeti", or Bigfoot known to Native Americans as "Sasquatch" were ever seriously investigated in a television journalism piece, neither separately nor together. Taking a gamble against advice that such subjects would not be taken seriously by "educated", so-called "right-minded" people, this production got the go-ahead. The result was the highest-rated TV documentary in history, critical acclaim by viewers in general and "right-minded" critics in particular, with the ultimate result that it validated the production a few years later of the first strange science documentary series, "In Search Of". It even got a recommendation by the National Education Association for teachers to use this documentary in the classroom - so it was, after all, to be taken quite seriously by the "educated"!


Cryptozoology aims to prove the existence of entities from the folklore record, such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, the chupacabra, the Jersey Devil, or the Mokele-mbembe. Cryptozoologists refer to these entities as cryptids, a term coined by the subculture. It was originally founded in the 1950s by zoologists Bernard Heuvelmans and Ivan T. Sanderson. Scholars have noted the involvement of an uncritical subculture in the subject which has rejected mainstream approaches from an early date, and adherents to that subculture often express hostility to mainstream science. Nevertheless, sightings of cryptids continue, both by the uncritical and the credible alike.
