These are the questions posed by host Robert Davi at the outset of an ambitious TV special purporting to offer the first hard evidence of the truth behind reports of UFO phenomena. It begins with a look at photographs and video of UFOs--home video from Mexico, controversial footage from the space shuttle and the two 1950 McMinville, Ore., photographs that have so far withstood critical scrutiny.
The show then offers a history lesson on the modern beginning of the UFO phenomenon: in 1947 the first widespread reports of sightings of "flying disks" and a fanciful recreation of the now-famous Roswell incident. It balances this mythology with details from the U.S. Air Force's own report discrediting the Roswell UFO sightings and leaves the issue up in the air.
The special then examines reports from alleged abductees, shows gruesome recreations of abductees' supposed experiences, and interviews abduction author Budd Hopkins and multiple-abductee Jesse Long. There are also countervailing arguments by clinical psychologists and other skeptics.
