Yeti enthusiast Andy is in Nepal where he’s stumbled across a photo of strange footprints in the snow. Could these belong to a yeti?

Andy tracks down the photographer who tells him he’s seen footprints several times. He says yetis are often seen by nomads who make necklaces from yeti hair.

Can Andy track down these nomads and get hold of some yeti hair? This means travelling up to the remote district of Lo Mantang, hot on the trail of yeti evidence.

In this 10-part documentary series, Andrew Benfield and Richard Horsey travel through India, Myanmar, Nepal and Bhutan in search of stories of yeti sightings and encounters. They hear from villagers, yak herders, sherpas and mountaineers, who give surprisingly consistent descriptions of a mysterious, large, hairy creature. This series takes us on a journey deep into Himalayan culture as the presenters grapple with their own inner demons to try to make sense of the yeti myth.

Producer: Joanna Jolly. Executive Producer: Kirsten Lass. Sound designers: Peregrine Andrews and Dan King. Composer of original music: Marisa Cornford. Assistant Producer Maia Miller- Lewis.

A Loftus Media production for BBC Radio 4.
