In Search Of

In Search of... is a television series that was broadcast weekly from 1977 to 1982, devoted to mysterious phenomena. It was created after the success of three one-hour TV documentaries produced by creator Alan Landsburg: <i>In Search of Ancient Astronauts</i> in 1973 (based on the book <i>Chariots of the Gods?</i> by Erich von Daniken), <i>In Search of Ancient Mysteries</i> and <i>The Outer Space Connection</i>, both in 1975 (later adapted into popular paperbacks written by Landsburg). All three featured narration by Rod Serling, who was the initial choice to host the spin-off show. After Serling's death, Leonard Nimoy was selected to be the host.
