John Keel´s Strange Creatures From Time and Space, originally published in 1970 with artwork by Frank Frazetta, is a comprehensive encyclopedia of monsters from around the world, including: Fantastic flying saucer occupants; True psychic phenomena; Phantom killers of people and livestock; The full story of West Virginia´s man-bird, ´´Mothman´´; The elusive ´´Bigfoot´´, Sasquatch, and Yeti; Giants of Minnesota and the Appalachians; Sea serpents and lake creatures; Vampires and werewolves; Angels and demons´ The dangerous and enigmatic Men in Black (MIB). John A. Keel has been on the trail of weirdness for decades, investigating wild tales of alien abduction, hairy monsters, and mysterious entities that can terrify and even harm humans. He has become the top man in the field of the inexplicable. Keel actually has explanations for the unusual things he recounts - which have long left others baffled. In this mountain of way-out evidence, he sees a pattern and draws original, startling, and convincing conclusions. Keel was born in monster country - on a farm in Silver Lake, New York, home of one of America´s native sea serpents. He began writing articles on UFOs in 1945, two years before the ufomania began. In 1952, he produced a Halloween broadcast from the Frankenstein Castle in Germany, and in 1954 he saw his first flying saucer while exploring the Upper Nile. For years, Keel wandered around Asia in search of the secrets of the occult. The last American to enter Tibet from the Indian side, Keel spent weeks tracking the Yeti. After having written many books and magazine articles, Keel remains an open-minded skeptic. There is no one better qualified to report on and interpret today´s flood of ´´anti-rational´´ evidence than Keel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Ferrand.

In this hour, Deborah Blum tells the remarkable story of the two scientists who invented forensic medicine and figured out how to catch killers using poison. The late 19th century was the golden age of arsenic, when poisoners got away with murder. That all changed in the 1920s when these New York scientists learned how to detect toxins in the human body. Then, a few maverick physicists in the 1970s revived interest in the philosophical dimensions of physics - especially quantum mechanics - by investigating some of the deepest questions in science: quantum entanglement, the connection between quantum reality and consciousness, even the paranormal. Some actually managed to get CIA funding for their research on ESP. Next, science historian Holly Tucker chronicles the controversies over the first blood transfusions in the 17th century and why this raised fundamental questions about what it means to be human. It´s a great story about the origins of science, the fear of monsters and it even involves a scandalous murder trial. And finally, journalist Steve Volk believes the paranormal can be studied scientifically and says it´s also a great subject for journalists. He considers a range of paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, UFOs, life after death, and also talks about a memorable ghost story in his own family history.
