Okay, so you're probably thinking that we didn't land an unmanned probe on the Red Planet until the 1970's. I don't believe it took that long. Not by a long shot! You see, there is the space program we know, and behind that is the secret space program, funded in part by taxes and in part by the so-called black budget. This covert space program has been in possession of extremely advanced technology - centuries ahead of that in the public sector - for decades. Since at least the 1930's, the American military has been in possession of increasing numbers of crashed extraterrestrial craft. The reasons for the crashes is a whole other story, but let's just say they didn't crash completely by accident. It was the reverse-engineered technology from these fallen vehicles that was used, and is being used, to ferry people to and from the Moon and Mars. It was recognised early on that the world was destined for huge climate and population problems, and so three "solutions" were devised. There were designated Alternatives 1, 2 and 3. The third "solution", Alternative 3, was to establish colonies on the Moon and Mars. It's likely that the 1962 Mars landing was part of Alternative 3. As for the footage, it came into the hands of a guy in the BBC in the mid-1970's. The tape was scrambled, but he obtained from his contact in NASA a decoding device... and there it was, in all its glory. The story how the footage came to light is shrouded in mystery, but it seems to me that the footage, by whatever means, came into the wrong hands and would inevitably become public. NASA, in classic Military Industrial Complex fashion, engineered a situation wherein they would hide the truth in plain sight. The documentary, aired on the BBC in 1977, was called Alternative 3. The BBC were very quick to denounce the documentary as an April Fool's Joke an hour after it finished. There are only two problems with that... it aired in June, and it was four hours long. I mean, come on, the TV networks often pull stupid practical jokes on April 1st, but a four-hour documentary is a bit over the top. Oh yes, and they claimed it was airing so late after April because they couldn't fit it into their schedule. For god's sake, they expect people to believe this rubbish?
Alternative 3 is a television programme, broadcast once only in the United Kingdom in 1977, and later broadcast in Australia and New Zealand, as a fictional hoax, an heir to Orson Welles' radio production of The War of the Worlds. Purporting to be an investigation into the UK's contemporary "brain drain", Alternative 3 uncovered a plan to make the moon and Mars habitable in the event of climate change and 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 1. Alternative 3 ended with credits for the actors involved in the production and featured interviews with a fictitious American astronaut.
....it is false because (I believe) radio communications bewteen thre and Earth takes eleven minutes one-way.
