Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

From `Broadcast Now`..

The picture on the left shows Jon, Corinna and Max out on their next trip to Ireland in search of material for YouTube trools to talk crap about. No it doesn't, of course; it is a still from everyone's favourite mildly crypto TV show, which despite being axed earlier in the year, has been brought back for at least two more series.

ITV has resurrected hit sci fi drama Primeval for two new series in 2011, after agreeing a ground breaking co-production deal that will see UKTV have the first run of the fifth series.

Just a shame we have to wait almost 2 years for it! Still, what with the delectable True Blood, the ostentatious Warehouse 13, fab Sanctuary repeats and a new series of Fringe starting this weekend, I am sure we are all well catered to :)
