IN SEARCH OF...
While searching on Youtube I stumbled across episodes of my favorite TV show when I was growing up: "IN SEARCH OF...". Hosted by Lenord Nimoy, it orginally aired between 1976 to 1982. Being before my time, I was lucky to be able to catch late 90's reruns on the History Channel.
Each episode focused on a mystery like Bigfoot, The Loch Ness Monster, or Easter Island. One of the things that really made the show was the music by Rinder and Lewis. It was particularly effective in creating an aura of mystery and suspense. Think Boards Of Canada only more dark and 70's. Below is one of my favorite episodes about Coral Castle in Florida. More episodes can be found at www.youtube.com/user/g8trman77#g/u.
If anyone has a collection of music from this show please get in touch! There was a record that was put out in the 70's but it was composed of disco remixes of themes from the show. It's almost unlistenable but I posted it below for the curious.
