by David Lemon and Mark Eccleston.

Based on real events, this is the story of one of literature's greatest and most long-lived hoaxes, featuring yetis, owls and talking cats.

Directed by Marc Beeby

This is the remarkable story of one of literature's greatest hoaxes; a tale of auras and astral projection; of jealous rivals and embarrassed publishers.

According to his bestselling 1956 autobiography 'The Third Eye', Tuesday Lobsang Rampa was born into Tibetan aristocracy and chosen as a boy to become a Lama. According to others, including the private detective employed to delve into his background, he was somebody else entirely... Lobsang Rampa's books are still in print and have sold millions of copies.
