Monsters Behind the Iron CurtainThis program investigates mountain wild men, lake monsters and the elusive tales of the Mountain of the Dead
For centuries the Soviet Union was a land of mystery and secrets. This program investigates mountain wild men, lake monsters and the elusive tales of the Mountain of the Dead. We uncover age-old mysteries with the help of new technology and harrowing first-hand accounts of wild attacks.
Using eyewitness testimony, powerful dramatic reconstruction, unique graphic-novel style illustrations and real artifacts, the programme brings to life the bizarre and frightening tales of these mythical monsters. With the help of a group of top scientists from the UK and Russia, Monsters Behind the Iron Curtain/Russia's Mystery Files also looks into human psychology, explores the physics of the metaphysical and the biology of the beasts. From the wild men in the mountains and Romania's Forest of Lost Souls to mutant dogs and the mysterious Mountain of Death, we discover that nothing is quite as it seems as they seek to unlock the strange truth behind the legend.
