I watched the original live broadcast of this program on TV. Many prominent figures in the UFO investigative community of the day make appearances, and much fascinating and, at the time, new information was presented. The first I had ever heard of the now-infamous Area 51 was on this telecast. The space-age sets and flashy music score were widely criticized at the time, as it tended a bit toward sensationalism, but, in retrospect, those aspects have mellowed, while the content still carries its full original force. The best part was the segment in which one of two mystery men, code-named: "Falcon", gave intriguing and very detailed information on the aliens -- even down to their favorite foods and music! Probably the biggest drawback to the show was doing it live. The axiom: "have something to say, and say it on cue", dictated by the live TV format, killed much of the natural demeanor of the participants. Not without its flaws, but definitely a unique and very noteworthy media event in UFO-lore.
