Reports of human encounters with mysterious and often dangerous legendary beasts continue to surface. Through eyewitness accounts and scientific research, LOST TAPES creates a dramatic representation of what would happen if someone met one of these obscure creatures – that science refuses to recognize – and it was caught on tape. In the water, in the woods, in the skies – they live among us and LOST TAPES explores what would happen if we met them face-to-face!

Pearl Harbor was one of the biggest sea and air battles in history. For many years, it’s been said that the Japanese soldiers attacked first and that they were guilty of the fatalities. However, many historians have doubts about this and believe instead that the American soldiers overreacted against a simple exploration mission, provoking the Japanese troops to attack. With the help of experts and pictures taken during battle, UNSOLVED HISTORY: MYTHS OF PEARL HARBOR will try to determine what really happened that day.
