Storyline

One of many 1970s UFO documentaries, this one features lots of still photos of alleged UFOs, some UFO motion picture footage, and the usual stock footage and images acquired from government and military sources. Among the many people interviewed are UFO researchers Stanton Friedman and Ted Phillips, UFO abductees Betty Hill and Travis Walton, optical physicist Bruce Maccabee, and retired U.S. military officers Jesse Marcel and Wendelle Stevens. The documentary supports the view that alien visitors regularly come to Earth and have perhaps done so for centuries. Written by JHC3

Not flawless
13 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

I gave it a 9 as I'm a believer and was very pleased to find something close to the topic. A no skeptic person will certainly find it amazing and a little creepy, especially if you watch it at night, alone.

However.

Don't know about 1979, but these days it is about to convince mostly those eager to believe whatever they see. I wish it had more solid facts, expertise and analysis -- less talking and those stupid alien wax figures! My girlfriend who has a MS degree in physics just nothing but laughed during the most "ingenious" episodes.

Anyway, for those who are interested, it's a must watch.
