A DOCUMENTARY about Bownessie, the legendary monster of Windermere, has been shown on prime time television in Canada.
The TV show, Destination Monstre, was part of a series called Boogeymen which explored myths and legends around the world, including the Californian abominable snowman known as Bigfoot, and a monster that lives in the fiords of Norway.
It includes interviews with Steve Burnip, the journalist who took the first photos of a “creature” in the lake in 2006, along with people who have had close encounters, including Thomas Noblett of the Langdale Chase Hotel, and scientist-sceptics.

The programme also features the giant toy monster developed by Windermere businesswoman Naz Craig, who said: “There has been such a lot of interest in the Scottish monster, Nessie, for many years, and it is really good that our own Lake monster is gaining international recognition.”
