Trevor-

Good links, thanks. I didn't even check. You are correct about
the availability of the show, which I purchased on DVD more than
a year ago. It should be noted that I purchased it for its
entertainment value.

To be honest, I'm astonished that the TNT site is still active,
since the program aired in 1998. One segment mentions a
newspaper in Russia that mentions one particular incident on the
front page, but when the actual newspaper was obtained from an
archive, it didn't resemble the page shown on the program at
all.

It would be most interesting to learn the provenance of the
footage that is shown of a saucer shaped craft half buried in
the ground at a purported impact site. While I believe this is a
faked incident, it allegedly involved Russian military vehicles
that weren't readily available, and the uniforms appear to be
correct for the period portrayed.

I recall that one person on this list in late 1998, who was very
familiar with Russia, was quite involved in trying to verify
this program and learned of some major flaws that the pointed
out on his web page. Unfortunately, the production company that
was involved threatened him with a law suit, and being unfamilar
with US law he quickly took the site down and ceased posting to
the list.

Of course, this is only really interesting from an historical
perspective.
