Apparently when i asked about this video 2 years ago i was told it was part of the alternative 3 hoax.
In the past 2 years i e-mailed NASA about this Video (I don't think I've got the reply but i will have a look) The response i got was the generic
But when I asked them to Debunk the image they said they was unable to do that.
I can't believe that no one on here has seen this before its very very old..
Alternative 3 is a television programme, broadcast in the UK in 1977 as a fictional hoax, an heir to Orson Welles' radio production of The War of the
Worlds. Purporting to be an investigation into Britain's contemporary "brain drain," Alternative 3 uncovered a plan to make the moon and Mars
habitable in the event of a terminal environmental catastrophe on Earth.
The programme was originally meant to be broadcast on April Fools Day, 1977. While its broadcast was delayed until June by industrial action, the
credits explicitly date the film to April 1st. Alternative 3 ended with credits for the actors involved in the production and featured interviews with
a fictitious American astronaut. However, some conspiracy theory supporters have argued Alternative 3 is at least partly true.
n the late 1970s the UK's Anglia Television ran a weekly science series, Science Report. The final episode, Alternative 3, retained the series'
format and presenter, and was written by Chris Miles and David Ambrose. Music was by Brian Eno, a portion of his score being released on the 1978
album Music for Films.
The episode began by detailing the so-called "brain drain:" a number of mysterious disappearances and deaths of physicists, engineers, astronomers,
and others in related fields. Among the strange deaths reported was that of one "Professor Ballantine" of Jodrell Bank. Before his death, Ballantine
delivers a videotape to an academic friend, but when viewed on an ordinary videotape machine the only result is radio static.
According to the research presented in the episode, it was hypothesized that the missing scientists were involved in a secret American/Soviet plan in
outer space, and further suggested that interplanetary space travel had been possible for much longer than was commonly accepted. The episode featured
an Apollo astronaut — the fictional "Bob Grodin," played by Shane Rimmer — who claims to have stumbled on a mysterious lunar base during his
It was claimed that scientists had determined that the Earth's surface would be unable to support life for much longer, due to pollution leading to
catastrophic climate change. It was proposed that there were three alternatives to this problem: the first involved the detonation of nuclear bombs in
the stratosphere in order to allow the pollution to escape. The second alternative was the construction of an elaborate underground city, a solution
reminiscent of the finale of Dr Strangelove. The third alternative, the so-called "Alternative 3," was to populate Mars via a way station on the
The programme ends with some detective work; acting on information from Grodin, the reporters determine that Ballantine's videotape requires a
special decoding device. After locating such a device, the resulting video turns out to depict a landing on the Martian surface — in 1962! As
Russian and American voices excitedly celebrate their achievement, something stirs beneath the Martian soil...
