The Men Who Invented Flying Saucers

Alas, as much as I'd like to have the market cornered on UFO films, I don't.

Here in Halifax, Mike MacDonald of Roadhouse Films has made a couple of good UFO-related films, including the well-known Shag Harbour Incident, and the less well-known (so far) Northern Lights two-parter, about UFOs in Canada.

You can get more information on these and other films by Mike at:

While Mike and I seem to have the Canadian UFO market cornered, there are always filmmakers eleswhere that are working on UFO-related projects.

For example, here's a documentary mini-series in the works from the United Kingdom that sounds interesting:

"The Men Who Invented Flying Saucers
(A 3 x 1 hour documentary series)
This is the story that blows the lid off the Flying Saucer myth.It demonstrates that everything people believe about this vast, often dark cultural phenomenon can be traced to the actions and beliefs of just nine men.It is not a story of lights in the sky. It does not try to prove wild unsupported theories. It is the definitive untarnished account of how, between 1947 and 1969, UFOs invaded the public psyche. And it is told through the eyes of the people who made it happen. Some in high places. Some in secret. Some who searched for the truth. And some who manipulated it..."


Hmm... sounds like a film certain to anger ETH proponents, and please (perhaps) Nick Redfern fans.

The point is that there's more than a few serious filmmakers out there willing to take the UFO phenomenon seriously.

Now, whether you agree with or like their films is a different story - as always, it will depend upon your point of view.
