34 The Making of Bigfoot (Cover Story)
The 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film has long been considered the 'best' evidence for Bigfoot - while simultaneously being denounced as a hoax. Now, Kal K Korff reveals who the hoaxers were and shows how it was done; while Bigfooter Daniel Perez concludes that the case still isn't closed.

40 The Hexham Wolf
Stuart Ferrol reports from his home town of Hexham on the unresolved story of a mystery wolf running free in the North-East of England 100 years ago.

44 Lapp of the Gods
Santa Claus and his alter ego Father Christmas have some roots in ancient pagan myth. Jeffrey Vallance sojourns in Lapland and uncovers more of the legend.

50 The Johnson Cult
In 1964, news magazines carried the bizarre tale of a tribe on a small island off Papua New Guinea trying to buy President Lyndon Johnson to be their chief. Robert Bartholomew and Dorothy K Billings venture to the South Seas and find that a quite different story unfolds - one of cultural difference, political protest and misunderstanding.
