This is one of the first abduction cases in a public view. Great story line of a flying object, people taken, a gift offered, missing time, then memories brought back by hypnosis.
Back in the 70's, a serious look was done with this one particular case and some interesting stuff came out.
But first, a little trip down memory lane. There were a couple of sci-fi shows that were very popular back in the late 50's and the very early 60's. The first and foremost was the Twilight Zone. Then there was the Outer Limits. The Outer Limits was not touchy feel good, like the newer one is. It was downright scary on some episodes.
A web site that would explain what I want to say about this, but in more detail is found here:
Basically, Barney and Betty had something happen. Whether it was an alien abduction or not is the very basic question. It just happens to parallel a TV episode of a show that had fairly high ratings. The time frame is highly coincidental and the details of the Hill's encounter are right out of the show.
