[video] MonsterQuest - Death of Loch Ness

"Throughout history there have been countless sightings of mysterious creatures, from Megladon, the father of the great white shark; to gators in the sewer, a result of the rising gator populations clashing with human encroachment; to the Snow Beast of the Colorado Rockies that is thought to be hunting the elk population while fleeing man. Most of what we know of these creatures comes from campfire stories, blurry films and grainy photographs. In Season three, MonsterQuest brings science and technology to bear on these creatures of legend and seeks new, reliable evidence of their existence. Open-eyed historical research and hardcore analysis set the stage for groundbreaking field work: high-tech expeditions to the terrain these famous monsters are said to inhabit. Deploying state-of-the-art equipment, each episode scientifically examines the best evidence available, from pictures and video, to hair and bones, to actual eyewitness accounts. From pilots to policemen to ship captains, a number of seemingly credible people have seen things they can't explain. One part history, one part science and one part monsters, MonsterQuest discovers the truth in these sightings, and the legendary creatures behind them." -- iTunes Store

Episode Summary
The search for the Loch Ness Monster has captivated the world for decades, but now a startling realization about "Nessie" might shatter this age-old myth. Could the Loch Ness Monster be dead, and do its remains lie hidden at the bottom of the lake? Robert Rines, a world renowned inventor, believes he may have seen the remains of this mythical beast and is on a mission to find evidence to prove it. Rines, who believes he saw the creature surface in the lake in 1972, caught sonar images of the monster's remains. He believes Nessie's death may explain the decrease of sightings in recent years. Our search team looks for evidence and deploys the latest technology including remote operating vehicles (ROVs) and sonar and underwater cameras as it goes on the ultimate search for Nessie's remains.
