it sounds really interesting
Nigel Kneale's three Quatermass series from the fifties, which were all later made into films, also stand out, as do anthology shows such as The Twilight Zone (1959-64) and The Outer Limits (1963-65). Quatermass and the Pit (1957) is interesting in that it features many of the elements that would later arise in discussions about aliens' involvement in man's evolution22, as well as several aspects of the crashed UFO tale, exemplified by the Roswell incident.
Perhaps the Greys are an unconscious portrait of Western Man itself; many see our times as colourless and emotionless, ruled by grey leaders and grey technology and driven by the cold desire for wealth and property. The beings resemble human foetuses, so perhaps they are representations of our future children, born out of the current state of humanity. Enlarged heads and eyes (insect-like and vacant of colour and emotion) are seen by David J. Skal to represent the vast amounts of information and imagery that we are required to intake every day through our eyes from television and advertising, so that the head swells and the rest of the body withers away.

Popular ideas for explaining UFOs
Depending on who is doing the evaluation, between about 3% and 30% of all cases remain unexplained. The remaining residue of unexplained UFO sightings constitute a debate on their ultimate origin. Some of the more popular hypotheses for explaining UFOs are:
The Extraterrestrial Visitation Hypothesis
The Paranormal/Occult Hypothesis
The Interdimensional Hypothesis
The Psychological-Social Hypothesis
The Natural Explanation Hypothesis, e.g.ball lightning
The Earthlights/Tectonic Stress Hypothesis
The Man-made Craft Hypothesis (see Military flying saucers)
More than one explanation--various combinations of the above
