Mermaids: The Body Found (2012) + Mermaids: The New Evidence (2013)
Mermaids: The Body Found is a science fiction film that originally aired on May 27, 2012, on Animal Planet and June 17 on Discovery Channel. It tells the story of a scientific team’s investigative efforts to uncover the source behind mysterious underwater recordings and an unidentified marine body.
Two former National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration scientists, after investigating mass stranding of whales, claim to have recorded mysterious underwater noises coming from an unknown source. This sound resembled a sound previously recorded in 1997, called the “bloop”. They recovered 30% of the remains of an unknown creature from inside a great white shark which was said to possess attributes of the human body. They alleged that the marine creature had hands, not fins, and the hip structure of an upright animal. These findings, along with many others led the team to determine that this unknown animal was very closely related to humans — a mermaid.
In 26 May 2013, just one year after broadcasting Mermaids: The Body Found Animal Planet aired Mermaids: The New Evidence examining the startling, never-before-seen video evidence of aquatic hominids with the original whistle blower on the Mermaid Conspiracy, Dr. Paul Robertson.
