Storyline

Leonard Nimoy hosted this quasi-documentary television show which portrayed unusual natural phenomena and 'investigated' the paranormal. Its style of interspersing 'talking heads' with sensationalistic video segments may have been the forerunner of 'info-tainment.' Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Want to know about Bigfoot, The Honey Island Swamp Monster of Louisiana, and other monsters and the unexplained then go "In Search of". "In Search of" does a great job of exploring the hidden while at the same time the program searches for answers by research and actual reports and accounts. Leonard Nimoy is great at hosting this series his voice is among the best ever. Watch the reruns of "In Search of" on the History Channel.
