Overview


Are Urban Legends no more than harmless tales of modern folklore, or is there something more sinister lurking beneath the surface? Taking you back to the old campfire classics that send shivers down the spine, to the paranoia that followed the horrific events of 9\11, Jarvis Redman investigates.
The tragic events of 9\11 gave birth to an explosion of Urban Legends. During a sensitive time of high emotion and anxiety it was hard to know what to believe. Redman filters out the truth from the fiction.
Marvel at how the creators of the Blair Witch Project used the power of Urban Legends to great effect as a clever marketing tool, and how Churchill and Hitler played mind games with each other, using Urban Legends as part of their wartime propaganda campaigns.
Redman investigates why and how Urban Legends are deliberately manufactured to target large corporations such as Microsoft and Mc Donalds, with the sole intention of destroying their reputations.
Explore the culture of Netlore, and understand how hoax E-Mails and virus's have almost brought business's and governments to their knees.
Project 2067 explores the origins of Urban Legends, and why they exist. Redman sifts through the nonsense and cuts straight to the chase, presenting his findings in interesting bite-size summaries that are easy to digest.
Don't believe everything you are told.
