There was a one hour programme on La 6, the 6th TV Channel in France last night at 1 am, May 21st, on UFOs. It was a rather thorought series of interviews of pilots, expert witnesses, military and civilian authorities in France, Belgium and the USA which showed a lot of evidence and concluded that the phenomenon is of extraterrestrial origin. Although the testimonies included evidence that French Air Force Jets carrying nuclear weapons had been followed by UFOs and that many Governments had done their investigations and concluded that the alien objects were intelligently controlled and far above any technical perfornance known to man, the show did not mention a single case of encounter with the pilots of the craft or alien visitors. One of the persons questioned was Fife Symington, as part of the Phoenix Lights event which was discussed at some length with the testimonies of several witnesses. Symington stated on camera that he had done his own investigation and found that the nearby Air Force Base had scrambled two jets to try identifying and engaging the unknown craft although he had not been able to discover what the result of that mission had been.
The conclusion of the show was given by one of the French astronauts who said that it was well known and officially recognised that alien craft exist and that all space missions are intended to try to find out more about them and about alien life in the universe. It was pointed out that, given teh age of the universe, it was natural to assume that certain intelligent life forms should be many millions of years old and more evolved than human beings.
This is one more effort to inform the public and quietly acknowledge the situation and make people famialir with it, without revealing too much.
