I'm not sure if Bigfoot exists, and ANCIENT MYSTERIES: BIGFOOT really didn't convince me either way. I am still open to the possibility that Bigfoot does exist, and the possibility that it is the product of a lot of over-imagination. But that is what I found most interesting about ANCIENT MYSTERIES: BIGFOOT, and the Bigfoot phenomenon itself: the way it provides us with something interesting to "imagine" about. The fun of a mystery is that it is not solved and therefore you can make up all kinds of theories. In other words, to me, it is not so much whether Bigfoot exists or not that is interesting. What I find interesting is what people believe about Bigfoot (I'm not concerned with whether the beliefs are true or not), and ANCIENT MYSTERIES: BIGFOOT provided many interviews with people who shared their beliefs. And, much to my surprise, I found that Bigfoot sightings have been made in all 48 mainland states.
Leonard Nimoy is the absolute perfect narrator of this documentary. His voice conveys the sense of "eerie" and "noir" necessary for this subject. And this video contains some beautiful footage of the forests of the Pacific Northwest, which is where most Bigfoot sightings have occured; all of which I find rather exciting because I live in the Pacific Northwest.

A very good documentary for enthusiasts in the field of cryptozoology. The only reason I give it 4 stars and not 5 is the problems I have with all television documentaries on these subjects, and that is, the film makers simply aren't given enough time to put forth all the information and evidence that is needed to fully complete their argument. One hour minus commercial time is simply not long enough. But make no mistake, this documentary has everything needed to start that argument including a detailed discussion of the legendary Patterson film, analysis of distinct and unique footprints with Peter Byrne and the late Dr. Grover Krantz(both integral to the subject of Sasquatch), as well as historical and a few eye witness accounts. Production values are high as usual with A&E but with an extra hour to present more evidence and accounts, the argument for the existence would have been made much more thoroughly to no fault of the film makers or contributers. I'm sure their hands were tied. Anyone interested may want to try and find a copy of Peter Byrne's book, 'Bigfoot: Monster, Man, or Myth'. It is as good and thorough a book as you will ever read on the subject.

Unless you can obtain a copy of "The Mysterious Monsters," the 1975 Sunn Classic Pictures documentary -- hosted by Peter Graves -- that introduced the Patterson-Gimlin footage of Bigfoot at Bluff Creek, California, this documentary is about as good an introduction to Bigfoot as you will find. This video does contain the famous Patterson footage, as well as remarks by the late Dr. Grover Krantz, and the retired Peter Byrne, two of the most (in)famous Bigfoot researchers ever.
The video is broken into five "acts." Act 1 describes the history of bigfoot, citing such individuals who have recorded large, hairy creatures as Leif Erikson, Teddy Roosevelt, 19th-century missionaries in the Rocky mountains, and relevant Indian tribes. Act 2 is devoted to the Patterson footage. Acts 3, 4 and 5 describe the international interest in the creature, and also include some video footage taken by two men who were trying to capture Bigfoot on video. Did they? I will admit that their footage of two distinct eyes peering at them from a shadowy copse is intriguing and quite creepy. It is not, however, anything compared to Patterson's footage.
If you are interested in Bigfoot documentaries, there really is not much available these days. Some claim that the best documentary ever made was The Mysterious Monsters, but you may have difficulty finding it (although it IS available. Use your Internet imagination and see where it leads you).
One last thing: "The Hunt for Bigfoot," hosted by Clu Gulager, has got to be the most preposterously shameful excuse of a so-called documentary ever created. It is a transparent sham, and in no way should be mistaken for respectable research into the Bigfoot phenomenon. DON'T BUY IT!

I am a fanatic of Bigfoot lore and have several books on the subject. I jumped at the chance to buy this video, and it was an excellent production. Leonard Nimoy provides an excellent narrative that flows along well with the five parts in the documentary. There have been too many sightings all over the country for this to be a hoax. It is a primitive form of primate that has yet to be documented. New species are being discovered on a daily basis, even as crowded as our planet is becoming with human population. There is a lot of territory in the Pacific Northwest that man has never set foot on, and still plenty of room for a few thousand of these creatures to roam virtually undetected until one or more of them stumbles upon a camper, hiker or a hunter. This is probably the best documentary I have seen on the subject, covering the Indian lore of Bigfoot, looking at it from a scientific approach through Grover Krantz's analysis, seeing the Patterson-Gimlin film, and even the commercial aspects of Bigfoot in Willow Creek, California. A must see for the Bigfoot fan!
