Storyline

World ecological collapse; the next ice-age has already begun! Lucky for us, governments know what to do. Unfortunately it's a conspiracy to end all conspiracies. Vanishing scientists, dubious space missions, and a freak accident which kills the courier of a tape containing a secret radio message from an unmanned Mars probe - holds the key. Ruthless investigative reporters uncover the ominous master plan. Written by Sven Kahrkling <sven@customized.com>

I Was Caught Out
3 July 2002 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I watched this aged ten and was compelled by the subject matter , scientists disappearing across the world , an apollo mission astronaut loosing his temper while being asked questions as to what he saw on a moon mission , and most disturbing of all secret NASA footage from Mars showing something alive burrowing just under the surface of the red planet . An absolutely shocking investigation . It wasn`t untill a few days later that I found out it was an April fool . I didn`t feel stupid about getting fooled , after all I was only a child , but I did feel very angry that there was no proof of life on Mars . Just think though , there must still be literally thousands of people walking around today who still believe this was a real investigative report
