Within the last week or so, we've had another thread on ATS on the Guardian footage.
For ease of reference, I'll repeat a few points I made in that thread.
The relevant video (but NOT the new poor soundtrack on the version of the video is currently on Youtube and elsewhere, with a couple of young men/boys
talking about the UFO) is from the well known "Guardian" footage, purportedly showing a UFO landing in the Carp area of Ontario, Canada.
The fully story is rather complicated but, basically, from about 1989 onwards several Canadian and American researchers received a VHS tape with the
word "GUARDIAN" written on it. They also received some photographs and some documents that described a 'conspiracy' between the Chinese and "Grey
Aliens that are planning to take over the world".
The video subsequently appeared on quite a few documentaries, including "Unsolved Mysteries", "Sightings" and "Encounters". The video was
supported by a few well known ufologists (particularly Bob Oechsler and Bruce Maccabee).
However, the video is largely regarded as a hoax - partly due to a detailed report by Canadian representatives of MUFON (Tom Theofanous & Errol
Bruce-Knapp in 1994/1995).
Their report can be found at:
They concluded: “… the Guardian video of a 'UFO landing' has, after analysis, proved inconclusive and likely is either a pick-up truck or
(according to the RCMP investigation) a helicopter.”
Relatively few people supported the video following that report, although Bruce Maccabee did write a fairly long response which contended that "the
alert reader [of EBK's report] will realize that the article presents no convincing evidence to show that either the witness testimony or the video
constitute a hoax". See Bruce's comments within a letter dated 25 May 1994 to the editors of the MUFON Journal at the link below:
The above summary should contain plenty of keywords to use in Google searches. Also, checking my database of allegedly hoaxed UFO videos, I note that
the Guardian video was discussed on ATS in May 2003 in the relatively brief thread (containing comments by Gazrok and a few others) below:
All the best,
