Host Bryant Gumbel Unlocks The Mystery Behind The 'Ukís Roswell'
In A SciFi Channel Original Expose

SCI FI Channel crosses the Atlantic to expose one of the most
notorious UFO incidents of the twentieth century in UFO Invasion
at Rendlesham. Hosted by Bryant Gumbel, this original two-hour
documentary special premieres Friday, December 12 @ 9 PM (ET/PT)
exclusively on SCI FI Channel. UFO Invasion at Rendlesham is
part of the SCI FI Declassified franchise, a series of specials
that demystify the place where science fiction meets science
fact. The most recent Declassified special, The New Roswell:
Kecksburg Exposed, was the highest-rated non-fiction program to
air on SCI FI in 2003, and was the highest-rated documentary
program in primetime on basic cable for the month of October
2003.*

SCI FIís expose of the controversial Rendlesham UFO incident
sheds new light on a compelling mystery. In 1980, a series of
bizarre events occurred near two American military bases in
Rendlesham Forest, England. Three American servicemen
investigated strange lights that maneuvered and appeared to be
intelligently controlled. The incident was then covered up and
eyewitnesses were forced to change their stories. In 2002, the
British government acknowledged that it had classified documents
regarding the Rendlesham incident, making this story an exciting
subject for a Declassified investigation. SCI FI brings together
key eyewitnesses and high-ranking military officials who go on
the record for the FIRST TIME to provide new and corroborating
evidence.

The special is directed and executive produced by Jim Milio of
MPH Entertainment. Melissa Peltier and Mark Hufnail of MPH also
serve as executive producers. Jim Milio and Kelly McPherson
serve as co-writers. Through landmark documentary programming
and advocacy-based public affairs efforts, SCI FI works to
expand the contemporary definitions of science fiction to
include ideas, concepts, myths and legends that simply cannot be
explained. Last year, SCI FI launched a Washington, D.C. based
public advocacy initiative to draw greater attention to the UFO
phenomenon and is currently lobbying Congress to gain support
for more scientific inquiry into these issues.

UFO INVASION AT RENDLESHAM is produced by MPH Entertainment
Productions, exclusively for SCI FI. Launched in 1996, MPH has
produced over 130 hours of primetime television programming and
two independent feature films, including co-executive producing
the 2002 smash hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Notable among MPH's
