'In Search Of' - TV Mysteries Program Hosted by Leonard Nimoy

Post by jamesbond »

In Search of... is an American television series that was broadcast weekly from 1977 to 1982, devoted to mysterious phenomena. Leonard Nimoy was the host. The program conducted investigations into the controversial and paranormal (e.g., UFOs, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster).

Additionally, it featured episodes about mysterious historical events and personalities such as Anna Anderson/Grand Duchess Anastasia, the Lincoln Assassination, the Jack the Ripper murders, infamous cults (e.g., Jim Jones), and missing persons, cities, and ships (e.g., Amelia Earhart, Jimmy Hoffa, D. B. Cooper, the Mary Celeste, the Titanic, the lost Roanoke Colony).

Because the show often presented offbeat subjects and controversial theories, each episode's opening credits included a verbal disclaimer about the conjectural nature of the evidence and theories to be presented: "This series presents information based in part on theory and conjecture. The producer's purpose is to suggest some possible explanations, but not necessarily the only ones, to the mysteries we will examine."

Here is the intro and ending credits and theme song for the show, "In Search Of."

"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"

"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."

I remember the intro to that show. I watched that show when I was about 5 years old. I didn't make the connection that Mr. Spock was the narrator at the time.
