In March 1995, an extremely bizarre one hour television special aired in only 5 US cities without advertisement, and without repeat. The special titled, “Alien Encounters From New Tomorrowland” has a unique tone that’s impossible to ignore. The film presents UFO sightings, alien abduction, and visitation as a matter-of-fact.
Now as we approach a new millennium mankind is in the midst of the most profound event in history, actual contact with intelligent life from other planets. For nearly 50 years officials have been documenting routine alien encounters here on Earth, and thousands of people have seen or experienced this alien presence. Yet many others still refuse to acknowledge the obvious evidence all around them. -Robert Urich, as Host.
Behind the upbeat music, and peppy narration there is an actually legitimate UFO investigation into such serious topics as, UFO sightings, government dis-information campaigns, and human abduction. The topics are presented so sensibly that it almost carries an indication of ridicule for those who are resistant to the phenomenon’s legitimacy.
Disney World’s latest attraction with the same name was the obvious advertisement underlying this curious presentation, but why make a one-hour special on the factual presence of the UFO and extraterrestrial phenomenon?
Was this an attempt to measure public reaction to the possibility of inevitable contact? Leave your comments below.
