Monster Quest: The Real Hobbit
Travel to the interior of Sumatra, in Indonesia, in a search for what locals call the Orang Pendak [sic], translated as: Man of the Woods. In 2004 skeletal remains were found on the neighboring island of Flores and named “the Real Hobbit.” Could Orang Pendak [sic], with its human face, be a surviving ancestor to the Flores Man? An expedition is launched deep within the rainforest. The natives claim to see the creature often, and they even find footprints of an unknown upright walking beast. Will camera traps reveal its identity? One-part history, one-part science and one part monster, discover the truth behind these legendary monsters. (MonsterQuest/History Channel promotional blurb)

It is followed by the repeat of “Deepsea Detectives” episode on the Loch Ness Monster at 11 PM eastern / 10 PM central on the History Channel. (BTW, I do know the ocean is six miles from the loch, not one.)
