Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Going far beyond the standard, oft-told tales of Roswell and Area 51, this three-part cable documentary series chronicled the history of "close encounters" over the past 5,000 years (at the very least). The content of the series was implicit in its episode titles: "When UFOs Arrive," "UFO Hot Spots," and "UFOs in the Bible." It perhaps goes without saying that the program was top-heavy with eyewitness accounts and "authenticated" film and videotape footage. Telecast as part of a "UFO Week" on the History Channel, UFOs: What You Didn't Know premiered on January 28, 2003.
