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

Great Video with PROOF of UFO's
24 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Everything in this documentary is GREAT with PROOF of UFO existence.Everything except the Billy Maier baloney that is.I wish that mess was not in this documentary,but 9 out of 10 is not bad.Plenty of hard evidence here.President Jimmy Carter,J.Edgar Hoover,Military Officials,and many other CREDIBLE witnesses are featured in this show.I mean Betty Hill describing Amniocentesis BEFORE it was INVENTED says VOLUMES.As does a handwritten memo from J.Edgar Hoover,attesting to the existence of UFO's.There are soil tests that are DEMONSTRATED,and also many,many legit photo's of UFO's(don't count the Billy Maier crap near the end of the movie,lol).Everything in this is intelligently written and presented.99% of the evidence presented here stands up today still(Again the Maier stuff is a joke,but not the main item here,thank God).This and a few of the recent UFO's documentaries with Bryant Gumble is very well done also.I want to get those as Gumble shows the military's outright LIES explaining people seeing BODIES after the Roswell crash.The Military explains them as "Crash Test Dummies".Then Gumble points out the dummies were NOT used until 7 YEARS AFTER ROSWELL.Get your cover ups STRAIGHT Military!
