From London, Japan, the USA and across the world, people came to a remote, cold lake in the Highlands of Scotland.

WW2 veterans together for one last adventure, excited scientists and hairy hippies – all competed in the frantic search for what they passionately believed could be the natural history discovery of the century... capturing evidence of the Loch Ness Monster!

Rumours and sightings of a dinosaur-like creature had persisted at the loch for decades, and the 1970s saw a frenzy of "monster hunting". No qualifications were required to join the hunt – just enthusiasm and wonder – but monster egos, fakes and frustrations, rivalries and ridicule meant that Loch Ness quickly became home to a very different type of beast, with research teams turning on each other.  

Director John MacLaverty’s humane and hilarious documentary is a fresh take on Scotland most famous story, the unbelievable story behind the unbelievable story!
