The Mystery Of The Loch Ness Monster | A Legend Uncovered

Naked Science writes “The truth behind the legend. Fact or Fiction? The legend of the Loch Ness monster dates back 1500 years. Since then, thousands of eye witnesses, countless photographs, sonar records and films have testified to the existence of a Loch Ness monster. Yet despite extensive exploration, observation and scientific analysis, still no real evidence has been discovered.

This documentary takes us through the story of the Loch Ness monster and starts us off charting the early history of the legend. From the first sighting by St Columba in 565AD, to the ‘Spicer’ sighting that kicked off the modern legend in 1933 and the world famous ‘Surgeon’s Photo’ from 1934 that captured what appeared to be a head and neck emerging from Loch Ness.

From the ‘Surgeon’s Photo’, the press, frenzied public and scientific observers soon concluded that the creature living in the loch was a long-extinct dinosaur called a plesiosaur. A preposterous suggestion it would seem.

A fish thought to be extinct 80 million years ago but discovered in 1938, to much surprise, living off the coast of Madagascar.

So just how real is the Loch Ness monster? Is it all rumor’s, conspiracy and speculation? Where is the photographic evidence? Many questions that will be answered throughout this documentary..”
