At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

1965: BBC TV interviews a London University professor who claims he has perfected a technology he called "smell-o-vision," allowing TV viewers to smell aromas produced in the television studio. He demonstrates by placing coffee beans and onions into the smell-o-vision machine and asks viewers to report by noon whether they smell anything. Many viewers phone in affirmative results, some claiming the onions made their eyes water.
