Two TV Programs on Loch Ness and the Monster

Firstly on the National Geographic Channel, "Secrets of Loch Ness" as part of the "Drain the Oceans" series which states "Advanced scanning technology is used to explore the depths of Loch Ness. However, as a full sonar sweep of the loch's depths is performed, more than a monster is revealed.". This will televise at 8pm tonight UK time and further details here. I will interested to know what they mean by "full sonar sweep" as we have had that term bandied about before.

Also, the popular BBC train travel series "Great British Railway Journeys" hosted by Michael Portillo finally gets to Loch Ness and you can watch it here on iPlayer from the UK. Both are being advertised by Adrian Shine's Loch Ness Centre facebook page, so that makes me wonder if Adrian will be making an appearance in both. As an aside, one used to be able to get a train right up to the shores of Loch Ness at Fort Augustus. Then the car came along and the Government closed the line, so that may be discussed as well.

Finally, despite the new "In Search Of" series' visit to Loch Ness being on YouTube for long enough, I just waited until it finally televised on the UK History Channel last week, so I will get round to reviewing that once I have watched it.
