Editor reviews

This thrilling dramatization, performed with verve by voice actors Valentine Dyall, Blain Fairman, Carole Ann Ford, John Graham, and Jacqueline Stanbury, transports listeners to the highest mountain peaks, the deepest oceans, the furthest corners of planet Earth as it tracks monster enthusiasts and academics in their search for the bizarre and fantastic creatures possibly hidden in plain sight across the globe.

Monsters of the Earth is a fantastic and intriguing romp, skillfully recorded in the style of an old-fashioned radio program, with actors providing unique voices for the various experts and researchers interviewed in the course of the work. Tune in and let your mind wander, wonder - could there be life on Earth which we haven't yet discovered?

Summary

The earth teems with strange creatures. Most we know about. But there are others that seem to flit like ghosts in the background of our experience. Large footprints in the Himalayan snows start speculation about the yeti or abominable snowman. A harsh cry in the African jungle sparks fears of the dreaded chemosit. A dark shape rears up from the waters of a Scottish loch. Could it be Nessie, the Loch Ness monster? What about the sea serpents so feared by ancient mariners? Be prepared for strange and extraordinary tales in this dramatized investigation.
