ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(zombies groaning)

- [Emily] When you hear zombie, do you think of shambling,

flesh eating corpses or maybe violent infected humans?

I'm Dr. Emily Zarka and I'm a monster expert.

Americana is steeped in zombie lore,

and we clearly had an appetite for these kinds of stories.

By diving into the historical creatures we fear,

we can learn a lot about ourselves.

- [Announcer] "Exhumed, A History of Zombies",

Friday, October 30th, only on PBS.
