** The episode on Eva Braun features David Irving, who is presented as a respectable historian. In later years, Irving would be exposed as a Holocaust denier and historical falsifier. At the time this episode was made, he was already a very controversial writer with a reputation as a Hitler apologist.

The series conducted investigations into the controversial and paranormal (e.g., [=UFOs=], Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster). Additionally, it featured episodes about mysterious historical events and personalities such as [[DidAnastasiaSurvive Anna Anderson/Grand Duchess Anastasia]], the Lincoln Assassination, the Jack the Ripper murders, infamous cults (e.g. Jim Jones), and missing persons, cities, and ships (e.g., UsefulNotes/AmeliaEarhart, Jimmy Hoffa, D.

''In Search Of...'' is a syndicated documentary television series that was broadcast weekly from 1977 to 1982, devoted to mysteries and phenomena. It was created after three successful one-hour TV documentaries, ''In Search of Ancient Astronauts'' in 1973 (based on the book ''Chariots of the Gods?'' by Erich von Däniken), and ''In Search of Ancient Mysteries'' and ''The Outer Space Connection'' (both of which were written into popular paperbacks by series-creator Alan Landsburg) in 1975. All three feature narration by Creator/RodSerling, who was the initial choice to host the series. After the death of Serling, Creator/LeonardNimoy was chosen to be the host of the spin-off series.

* DidAnastasiaSurvive: There's an episode about Anastasia Romanova, including an interview with an ancient-but-still-living Anna Anderson. In 1991, DNA evidence proved Anna Anderson was not Anastasia. Furthermore, Anastasia's body was found in 2007, proving she was killed along with the rest of her family. As a side note, the episode is clearly an artifact from a time when [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar certain issues]] prevented Western historians from having direct access to Russia. Come to think of it, that probably played a large part in how that legend survived so long.

* {{Dracula}}: There was an episode dedicated to him, complete with StockFootage from ''{{Film/Nosferatu}}'' being used to illustrate the Creator/BramStoker version of the character. There isn't really a mystery as such, since the episode mostly just relates the history of UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler. Although the episode itself leans towards HammerAndSickleRemovedForYourProtection, it's interesting to note that it was filmed on-location in {{UsefulNotes/Romania}} at a time when that country was ruled by the more modern tyrant of Nicolae Ceaușescu (who admired Vlad the Impaler, no less!)
