UFO’s: The Secret Evidence
Channel 4, History US, 120 minutes
Defence journalist and author Nick Cook takes a journey across the UK, America and Russia, exploring 60 years of UFO sightings. From the earliest observations by World War II pilots to stories of alien abductions in the 80’s and 90’s, Cook hits the road to unravel the mysteries. This feature length film reveals how Nazi scientists were experimenting with anti-gravity technology and cutting-edge aeronautics. Captured by the American’s at the close of the Second World War… many of Germany’s finest minds relocated to the US and continued their work.
German scientific endeavours not only ultimately put man on the moon but gave rise to some of the most bizarre and perplexing UFO reports over the American Midwest. Cook meets ex CIA head of the Moscow desk Melvin Goodman who admits the mass sightings during the 1960 and 70’s were played on by the CIA. Reports of UFO’s were encouraged… a perfect smoke screen for the testing of military experimental aircraft. Using drama reconstructions and extraordinary ‘first time’ interviews, Cook lifts the lid on a subject that still holds a fascination worldwide… is it all a political hoax or has ET really landed?
