32 Patty at 50 (cover story)
Fifty years ago Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin claimed to have encountered and filmed a living Bigfoot. The resulting footage has been dissected, debunked and defended for five decades. Stu Neville casts a British eye on an unlikely screen icon, while Todd Prescott provides an historical overview.

40 Marsupial Pugilism
From the 1890s to the 1930s, boxing kangaroos were all the rage in circuses and music halls across Europe and the USA. Jan Bondeson explores this strange sporting sensation and the Australian icons who conquered the world.

46 The Mystery Lights of East Anglia
Matt Salusbury pursues the will-o-the-wisps that have long haunted the East Anglian coast and learns of a possible geological explanation for "Jenny Burnt Arses".

52 The Bell Witch, Part Two
If there's one piece of supernatural lore that everyone in the US has heard of, then it's probably Tennessee's celebrated 'Bell Witch', but its main legacy is a fictional one. Roger Clarke goes in search of the dark roots and cinematic descendents of this foundational American haunting.
