“Missing… Have You Seen This Person?” was the title of a series of three specials produced by John Cosgrove and Terry-Dunn Meurer, which were proposed to NBC in 1985 and broadcast in 1986. Following the popularity of the specials, Cosgrove and Meurer decided to expand the series to encompass all types of mysteries.
There’s nothing better than a whole series dedicated to the world’s most famous conspiracy theories. Each episode of this 12-part series delves further into a separate topic, attempting to present alternative viewpoints on some of history’s most egregious potential coverups. The series covers everything from the moon landings to Nazis, the Cold War, and more exotic topics like UFOs, assassinations, and disappearances.
There are only 12 episodes in total, and each one reveals a different conspiracy! Conspiracy theorists and skeptics debate aliens, government cover-ups, secret assassinations, the secret lifestyles of Hollywood stars, and my personal favorite: the moon landing throughout the series.
