A fascinating news report from 1966 on Ufos. It's anchored by the late great Walter Cronkite. It's worth a watch. Great for those like me who enjoy learning about the history of U.S. ufology.

There's some marvelous history captured in the doc. The Michigan sightings reported on were the ones that led to Hynek's infamous Swamp Gas theory and to Gerald Ford calling for the Congressional investigation. Hynek comes off as open minded and we now know he became shortly after the most famous "defector" in Ufology.

The appearance of a very young Carl Sagan, more than a decade before Cosmos, with the same anti-people/anti-religion/science is God rap he maintained until he died was a sight to see.

There was too much time spent with contactees, and a lot of time spent on radar/NORAD. Of course the NORAD material was all a blatant lie. Any one with a passing knowledge of UFOs knows there have been many radar hits over the years.

The gentleman named Frank from Michigan was a compelling witness/interview subject. All in all, I think the documentary is a must see.

I have to admit I'm still watching it. I find the whole progression of the medias coverage of ufos fascinating.

I never saw them before yesterday. I certainly remember the 1973 flap, that's when I first got really interested in UFOs.
