[Isaac - that bit did not make it into the episode and the documentary gave the opposite impression by only showing the bit from the other researcher I mentioned in my question]

I don't know why they decided to avoid the fact that the binary would have had to have been converted from english first.
Excellent observation, and a reasonable supposition.
Here's my explanation:
Commercial sponsors LOVE shows that specifically ATTRACT judgment-impaired viewers who will believe ANYTHING they are told. This means more sales of the sponsoring agencies' goods and services.
The more gullible and disbelief-suspended the audience, the higher the profit.
These advertising strategists have concluded that viewers of UFO and ancient astronaut programs are exactly the kinds of marks they are looking for to invest their money in reaching.

EXPLORATION [of] HUMANITY
52" 09' 42.532 N
13" 13' 12.69 W
FOR PLANETARY ADVAN [CE]
Trying to capture and decode what was shown on Ancient Aliens.
They show a full page around the 5:30 mark.
This is what I found.
01010101010011110101010101010011010100011001001111 = "U=UMFO"
01010010010100000100110001000001010011100100010101010100010000010101001001011001 = "RPLANETARY"
I had to hack the last one to come up with anything readable.
01000001 01000100 01010110 01000001 01001110 00011100 10001001 00001
close with modification....
01000001 01000100 01010110 01000001 01001110 01000011 01000101 01000100 = "ADVANCED"
2nd Page 6:30 mark.
This next one is clear as day because there are pauses in the writing that help determine where the groupings of 8 started.
01000101 01011000 01010000 01001100 01001111 01010010 01000001 01010100 01001001 01001111 01001110 01001111 01001110 01001000 01010101 01001101 01000001 01001110 01001001 01010100 01011001 = "EXPLORATIONONHUMANITY"
There is one more letter I can get as the page pans off screen.
After studying this more I realized that its easier to decode by reading the pauses as they were written.
In Binary the 0 and 1's are bits. 8 bits make a byte. Several places they writing is grouped in eights. So, it's vital to get the scanned copies and not just the transcript.
I am confident that it's EXPLORATION ON HUMANITY instead of EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY.
It would also be helpful to understand this handful of questions.
How fast the numbers were given?
Where there pauses, or Spaces if visualized?
How Certain is James that they were accurately recorded?
One space shows it scratched out, why? Was it a mistake?
Was it lines and a circles or a ones and a zeros?
Were all bits the same height? Were any larger?
Nick Ciske's decode is a good one, but maybe I can help him flush out a little bit more. Once I see the whole context it might be that there were no errors and that would mean there is more to the message. I will visually decode the scans and share so that I can offer the decode to be scrutinized.
Nick Looks like a young lad. He might not know how some punch card registers used to be be able to recite binary one letter at a time. There is a pattern to it and the pattern is based on the English alphabet.
The code that Nick uses is based on standards that were set in 1986. 6 years after the event.
There are similar binary codes that this can be compared to that should decode more. If I see the pages in full context I am sure I can figure it out.
My first guess is that its EBCDIC. This Binary was used from the 50s and 60s but military computers used this through out the 70s and into the 80s.
I would love to talk to Nick about this and maybe work with him on the new decode.
I found his email and sent him a message.
