As a writer and broadcaster specialising in subjects that
include the unexplained, conspiracy theories and sci-fi, I often
take part in PR campaigns to promote alien-themed movies,
computer games, etc. There's no secret about this and indeed
it's openly advertised on my website:


As part of the marketing campaign for the launch of the alien
invasion-themed Sony PlayStation game Resistance: Burning Skies
I was commissioned to draw up a war plan detailing how the UK
government might respond to a real-life alien invasion. The
document (and a clear explanation of the circumstances that led
to its creation) can be read at the following link, third story


Various media outlets ran stories based on this, but to the best
of my knowledge all of them contained a phrase such as to mark
the forthcoming release of the Sony PlayStation game Resistance:
Burning Skies, Sony has teamed up with former Ministry of
Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope to produce.

It seems that despite the blatant product plug, a few people
didn't spot that this was a marketing campaign.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
