Talking of TV, one is reminded of the claim that Betty and Barney Hill's later description of their alleged abductors was influenced by an 'Outer Limits' episode, 'The Bellero Shield' (1964). Somewhat poetically, Travis Walton was in turn alleged to have gained ideas from the timely first transmission of B&B's own TV movie about their case, 'The Interrupted Journey' (1975).
Do you think there is any worth to the kind of experiments that Blackmore undertook, or do they perhaps patronise people who claim genuine, often very traumatic experiences?

Wouldn't somebody have to prove that the Hills and Walton actually saw these TV shows before their abductions to draw a causal connection?
What we're talking about is labeling the experience, not determining whether or not it actually happened. Sloppy pop psyche UFO study. There have been many.
