Excellent new documentary on the missing 411 cases. This one focuses on hunters.
this is amazing, was this part of a series? I would love to see more of this sorta thingAfter years of hunting, I've finally found a very poor copy of the BBC's The Ghostman of Skye on, of all places, the Russian social network, Odnoklassniki: Here - if anyone's interested.
Very much in the style of the BBC's old 40 Minutes documentary strand - much more Molly Dineen than Ghosthunters. Gentle, evocative and quite moving - I really enjoyed it, and am glad to have the opportunity to watch it again.
(I think it may see occasional repeat broadcast on BBC Alba - but I've never managed to catch it.)
Haha, I've watched so many dodgy Bigfoot films since then, I'm probably getting it all mixed up. I forget what it was all about now, just the last final moments of footage etched into my brain.I think Shooting Bigfoot is still on iPlayer, at least it was last time I looked. More a portrait of a con artist than a doc about Bigfoot, though, I'd say.
Two weeks until the 40th anniversaryI'm just watching this: "The West Lothian Question" - which interviews Bob Taylor (and his doctor, the police and the forensic scientists). He said he was attacked by spiky spheres in a forest in Dechmont Law in 1979. It seems very measured and non-sensational (finding fortean stuff on youtube that isn't annoying dross is tediously time-consuming don't you find. This is by 'Waterborne Productions' in 2004).
It's interesting that the "explanation" the sceptic comes up with is so much more convoluted and difficult to stomach, than to just accept that Bob experienced something (whatever that something was and why he experienced it). I think it's a really interesting programme!

They include undertaker Jeremy Massey, who has experienced some strange and profound things when grief has reduced people to their most raw state, and Robin Kelly, who recalls taking possession of his human body at the age of three and believes his soul came from somewhere else in the universe.
