We're a little late to the live feed of the Sykes Yeti special, but here's what they're talking about, so far:
- They're going to discuss whether or not it's possible for a bear to creature a "doublestep" that makes their print look like a bipedal footprint.
- 300 year old Tibetan manual script reveals that Yeti refers to many versions of bears.
More to come... Check back here for updates...
[Update] OK. So, there's nothing really new that we didn't already know. Apparently, there's an ancient polar bear in the Himalayas that's undiscovered. The next step now is to find it.
[Update #2] We're waiting for someone to upload the episode to YouTube.
[Update #3] Here are Adam Davies thoughts he shared with Nadia Moore on the revelation about the new hybrid bear discovery by Dr. Sykes: "I think its exciting. It’s just one type of the `Yeti` though. I have interviewed people in Nepal who know the difference between a Yeti and a bear. The anatomical analysis done by the presenter was also very superficial. The explanation given for the divergent toe found in Yeti prints was wholly inadequate. The analysis of records was also flawed. I chose not to appear in the program myself. There are accounts of Yetis written many centuries earlier that describe a `wildman`. I could go on. I do think Professor Sykes is a decent honourable man. That is why I have said that people should wait to see all the results gathered and his experiences which will be detailed in his book. I know there is plenty more to come yet. But I don't hold my breath for the second episode personally. Sykes analyses the evidence as he finds it. This is an exciting find but its just one part of the explanation of the Yeti, not the whole."
