Season 1, Episode 4

The Tichborne Claimant, Loch Ness Hoax

The English country estate known as Upton House became the subject of one of the most unusual inheritance disputes in history, when a crude stranger from Australia claimed to be deceased heir of the Tichborne fortune. On the banks of the Potomac River, the historic mansion Mt. Vernon may have been the setting for a bizarre medical experiment following the death of America's first president. The ancient ruins of Urquhart Castle overlook Scotland's Loch Ness, the home of the legendary Loch Ness Monster, and the site of a bizarre hoax that captured the world's attention.
