Nick and List

The show you are referring to did more than lean toward the
Mogul balloon theory - it ended with a comment that Roswell was
just a "myth". I taped for over 6 hours last summer for that
show here in Roswell, as did Stanton, Don Schmitt, Jesse Marcel
Jr. and others at other locations, never being told by the film
crew that the show would air with an obviously biased take on
the Roswell Incident.

Personally I expected a lot more balanced take of the Incident
from the National Geographic channel, especially with a show
title of "The True Story".

Stan and I both wrote articles about the show after it aired
here in the states:




voicing are disappointment with the National Geographic
channel's documentary.

I understand that the International version was several minutes
longer due to not having the commercials the American version
