Topie: New Program called, "Lost Tapes"
November 24th, 2008 01:31 AM
tmedina My name is TMedina. Last month, I watched a program called, "Lost Tapes." This report covered a Game Warden's attempts to investigate black bear poachers and disable the many traps or snares that they set up. The program documented many photos and video caught on DVR. The final report or entry of the Washington State Game Warden was entered on August 14, 2005. The Game Warden was a female Rachel G. and was being pursued and harassed by the poacher(s). The poacher was attacked and killed outside of Rachel G's cabin. It appears that the Sasquatch had been watching her and protecting her. The final report that the Washington State Fish and Game department issued stated, that the poacher was killed in his own traps, but never mentioned anything that was meticulously recorded or documented by Rachel H. G. Anyway, here is the only thing I could find on this report on the internet. I'm sure that most of the Forest employees including the BLM have been instructed to remain silent. Here's the paste:

"Lost Tapes: New Series
Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 17th, 2008

I just had a long talk with Doug Segal, the executive producer of a new Animal Planet series beginning in January 2009. It is a program about cryptids, and of footage of them, entitled “Lost Tapes.” The first two episodes are having a sneak preview on Halloween 2008.

Here is the PR that has slipped out:

Howl-O-Ween

Thursday, October 30, from 4pm - 10pm ET/PT

There’s nothing cuddly about this Animal Planet marathon! Tune in for the creepiest Howl-O-Ween yet, including a sneak peek of an all-new Animal Planet series, “Lost Tapes,” from 9-10 PM (ET/PT). Even in the modern age, reports of human encounters with mysterious and often dangerous beasts continue to surface. “Lost Tapes” is a first person, immersive experience of encounters with bizarre animals that science is reluctant to recognize - in our waters, in our woods, and in our skies - they live among us - you will believe. (Genres: Animals/Wildlife, Holiday, Marathon, Special)

Segal told me the first two episodes shown are on Bigfoot and Chupacabras."


You guys are doing a great job, please remain steadfast!

nugnug I saw clips of this alleged incident somewhere on the internet but I don't remember if it was youtube or not. I remember being a little skeptical while I was watching it.

Could you please go to the "Read this first" section on the forum home page and repost your introduction there? We need to keep the intros all in the same place.

kharmadawg i watched both of these episodes. And all I can say, it was like watching the Detroit Lions play. It was real hard to stomach. You are left wandering not about the cryptids(not refering the big guy hear) but who actually wrote this.

Smokebender I missed it. But then again, I don't watch the Lions play.

I agree this was pure fiction, and a waste of time for anyone serious about the Relict Hominoid.

I agree...I watched a couple episodes and it reminded me of The Blair Witch.

Does anyone know if the show is even based off of real events? I admit I haven't been reading up on Bigfoot for very long, but I would think I would have heard something about the park ranger/researcher/whatever she was by now.

jude The trailers were so terrible, I just can't bring myself to watch the shows.

I can't imagine the decision-making process which led to this series being aired. Maybe it was dirt cheap, and they thought it would appeal to the incomprehensible tastes of the fan base which avidly watches Untamed and Uncut?

ScottC_MA I watched the "Lost Tapes" show tonight and I wish the "Tapes" remained Lost. Probably the worst show I ever watched....until I watched the 2nd episode (back-to-back half hour shows).

ravellette Bigfoot one on Jan. 20th.

BIGFOOT
Premiering Tuesday, Jan. 20, at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
Her field reports clearly indicate that someone or something is watching Rachel Glen, the lone fish and game researcher in a remote forest outpost. On the verge of breaking one of science's most enduring mysteries, she finds herself the victim of a vengeful stalker. Her only hope comes in the form of an unlikely ally ...

minnesota dave24 i will probably check out the bf one for entertainment purposes, but i do think its not real peoples tapes. and at the beginning of the show they have a statement that says the events depicted are inspired by a true story.

in the middle of the show they have what appears to be footage of a creature shot in the past and i think that is the only real thing i think they write a story around the past footage and hence inspired by true story can be said.

i enjoyed it though, for entertainment purposes and for the kids out there who always watch animal planet it might be a good vehicle to get future squatchers involved. i must say though i am surprised animal planet who take on a show like this. it seems out of the norm for them.

Wheellug Watched an episode last night. Very 'dramatic' it seemed. They pose a question as to possible existance of creatures, then create a situation for the 'lost tape'.

Last night was about a girl who sailed around the world.
She responded to a distress call to find a boat empty with blood stains on it.
The creature would bump her boat, eventually causing her motor to die.
The bit that killed it for me?
When she was knocked overboard, she cut her safetly line to swim to the aft.
The boat sailed away.. under full sail.
the reason she got knocked overboard was the main sail was hung and she could NOT raise it and was walking on the side rail.

There it went.. full sail leaving her behind.

Trax I can't believe I waited so long to see that show! how gay was that show! ( i didn't mean that in a bad way ;) ) but that was some of the worst acting and camera work since the blair witch project! it was probably done by the same people!
I wish for ONCE one of these shows would actually produce something worth watching instead of stroking everybody into believing they actually got something on tape. Monster quest is another huge let down that had me all excited for nothing.... Monster dogs? PULLLLEEEEZE! what next crypto chihuahuas!!!

don't bother, just do another make over show instead.

also if you noticed when she "cleared" The motor the first time. She brought a pice of a fin or something on to the boat with her. said it must be a pice of a whale or somthing. But they didn't say anything about them finding a throw pillow sized pice of meat from an unknown animal when they found the boat.

JPaul Okerlund I watched this show last night. I want that hour of my life back. BF killed the evil poacher (then trussed his body up with a steel cable bear snare and hung it from a tree) and saved the pretty forest ranger. How romantic.

The first half hour was even worse.
January 22nd, 2009 10:33 AM
BFSanctum Oh my...I taped it but haven't had a chance to watch it yet! I'm still going to watch it but with no great expectations.
January 26th, 2009 05:33 PM
Dugger DId anyone dig up any information etc. on the forest ranger?...Animal Planet makes the claim that the re-enactments or inspired by true stories...
January 26th, 2009 11:33 PM
Nighthawk I'm 99% sure it's all made up. Watch it for entertainment only, not for some thought inducing TV :)

I dont think SCI-FI would even touch it. Their show Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters Inter. are way better. I agree that this is what you would expect to be sceen as fiction on SCI-FI, but they are showing it as based on fact. Even if you think GHs is made up they do a much better job of it.

sschablin This ill attempt at making a program from someones mis-fortune is one thing,but to exploit the possibilties of hidden/un known creatures is another!Lost Tapes has got the same feel and visual aspects as Most Haunted.I have to ask/wonder,if this is more garbage from the BBC!If you have a legitimate intrest in crypto/unexplained,fine, but try not to ruin or make a fraudulent claim to your research,it only makes the truely passionate people look like fools for trying to uncover the mystery/truth!I cant say i disliked the episode on Bigfoot,all it really did was bring up more questions in my mind.Not so much about Bigfoot,but the valitity of everything else.

dunarabianmare I watched the one with the megalania--not only were the plants fake, but there was no "depth" to the forest--only one layer of trees and then nothing. Whoever made these has no attention to detail. The music video that a friend of mine shot for a community college class turned out better than any of these--then again, he used real woods, not a studio.
