"The mother of all sightings is centred on Roswell in New
Mexico, where in 1947 (and as it happens, in the week I was
born - just saying) debris was found which was, according to
taste, the remains of a crashed UFO or of a military weather
balloon from a secret spy programme called Project Mogul.

Rumours that dead aliens were found with the debris and hidden
in Area 51, a top secret military base in Nevada, were kept
alive by a scratchy film that emerged in 1995, showing a
large-headed, bug-eyed alien corpse being dissected on an
operating table by a man in a white coat. In 2006, the film
was revealed by its maker to have been a hoax, but Roswell
was the first of a slew of mid-20th-century sightings which
supplied the prototype of the conspiracy theory that still
circulates among believers."


The quote above is not correct. The film-maker never said that
the footage was a hoax. Ray Santilli stated that he had tried to
re-create the footage and that they had mixed some of this
footage with the original footage to make the footage that was
released and became known as the "Alien Autopsy". There isn't
any evidence that the footage is a hoax or makeover.  Nor has
Ray produced any hard evidence that he actually re-created any

Also the footage was not from Roswell, July 1947, but was
connected to a crash and crash site one month earlier, on May
31, 1947, southwest of Socorro, NM.

Ray Santilli has always maintained that cameraman who took
the footage and the crash site he described were 100%
