Of chief interest to American readers was probably the lecture by Jackie Tonks on her Bigfoot encounter. She saw a brace of Bigfoot and wondered at first if they were costumed hoaxers until one of them broke wind in an explosive manner which was beyond the capacity of a human being.
Music was provided by Marianne Holland, whose voice showed a wonderful range.
We heard about the monsters of Norse lore from veteran cryptozoologist Lars Thomas. In the picture below you can see him behaving in an outrageous manner with Janet Walkley. A sober looking elderly cryptozoologist looks on.
