A fascinating new world has emerged for scientists to study, and it's just beneath their feet. With the emergence of cutting-edge technologies such as ground penetrating radar, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), and 3-D imaging, scientists are now able to research underworlds of secret tunnel networks, ancient structures, and bizarre geological occurrences that offer glimpses into the past. In "Secrets of the Underground," Rob Nelson, an ecologist by trade and an explorer by pastime, travels the country to investigate long-lost, subterranean phenomena. Nelson looks at all things hidden, covert and unfamiliar, from intricate and forgotten sewers and caves to lost civilizations and structures.

There are creatures both legendary and unidentified roaming the Appalachian Mountains, and a band of hard-core hunters and trappers have made it their life's work to investigate them. For generations, supposed sightings of these monsters -- with such names as Wolfman, Devil Dog, Wampus Beast, Mothman and Lizard Demon -- have occurred along the 1,500-mile stretch of mountains, and it wasn't until the members of the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings had their own personal encounters with these creatures that they became believers. Now, the AIMS crew, led by founders "Trapper" John Tice, Jeff Headlee and Willy McQuillian, use both traditional techniques and modern technology to track, trap and capture these monsters. Maybe AIMS will snag its first one while cameras are filming "Mountain Monsters"!
