The Roswell UFO Crash – BBC Documentary

I find it funny that one of the best documentaries about the UFO crash outside Roswell was made across ‘the pond’ in England by the BBC. What makes this documentary stand out is how many key witnesses they interview with either direct involvement, or by providing testimony as relayed directly to them.

The Roswell UFO Crash – BBC Documentary

Over 20 witnesses are interviewed in this documentary. Here are a few:

Loretta Proctor—who saw actual debris brought to her ranch by Mac Brazel, the ranch hand who found it on the Foster Ranch.

Jesse Marcel, Jr.—son of Major Marcel, the officer who responded to the crash site and returned with some of the debris. Major Marcel showed it to his son and wife before taking it to the base because he wanted them to see something so amazing.

Frankie Rowe—daughter of Dan Dwier, a Roswell Fire Brigade firefighter, who was at the station when her father brought in some of the debris. She was later threatened to ‘forget’ what she saw or it was a big desert in which to disappear.

Frank Joyce and Jud Roberts—from KGFL radio station who shared threats of closing it down if they didn’t stop broadcasting about the crash.

And the military witnesses:

Butch Blanchard—who in 1965 as a 4-star general told a friend that what he saw he had never seen before.

Major Jesse Marcel—in a rare 1978 interview admitting that he thought there was a cover-up.

Colonial Thomas DeBose—General Roger Ramey’s Chief of Staff at the time and shown with General Ramey posing with the weather balloon pieces that were substituted for the real debris. He retired as a Brigadier General and in an interview in 1991, shortly before his death, said the balloon was a cover story.

Even Congressman Steven Schiff was interviewed questioning the number of changing stories as an explanation for what happened in those July days of 1947.

Perhaps the only downside of this documentary is inclusion of footage from The Alien Autopsy. This footage was originally ‘discovered’ by Ray Santilli, a British musician, record, and film producer and released to the viewing public in 1995. It wasn’t until 2006 that he admitted the footage was a staged  reconstruction of a film he had seen in 1990, and was too damaged to use. It is sad that such attention was placed on this film when it was most likely a hoax. Even if what he said was true, he could have produced the damaged film along with the ‘reconstructed’ footage, so that we could make up our own minds. Even so, the film has become a part of the story of The Roswell Incident and is worth inclusion. You will find the full 17 minute film at the end of the documentary.

Take the time to watch this great production and then ask yourself—could all of these people be lying?

The Roswell Incident, as titled, was produced by Channel Four Television Corporation for the BBC and first aired in 1995. Thanks to Producer John Purdie and Director Tim Shawcross for an outstanding documentary.

5 Star review by Tina S., June 15, 2018:
In this colorful coming of age tale, you will feel as if you were right there with the characters and their journey through an unexpected series of events. With vivid detail, the author does an outstanding job of carrying you along on a wild ride through suspenseful twists and turns that keep you guessing.

5 Star review by Portland night owl, May 18, 2018:
I loved this book, plain and simple. The plot revolves around aliens which I love and had a great feel to it with the kids interacting in an honest believable way. As a kid growing up with “Stand By Me”, “Goonies”, “Monster Squad” and other films in that genre it was nice to get that feeling from a book. It’s well written and has some good twists to the story. I am awaiting a sequel and will be looking forward to future releases by Schneider.

5 Star review by: Glenda R. on March 26, 2018 : 
I am an avid reader. This usually isn’t my genre, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is smartly written with a good plot. It took me 4 days to read, once I started is was hard to put down. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read.

5 Star review by: Donna T. on February 8, 2018:
Great read! Fun story and hard to put down. Such insight into a teen’s thoughts. Excellent UFO ideas and imagination.

4 Star review by: Roselle S. on Jan. 28, 2018 :
I enjoyed this book a lot. I couldn’t put the book down, I was interested from the get go. It was suspenseful and funny and it all came together really well. I would recommend this book to all my fellow bookworms.

4 Star review by: Shelley D. on Dec. 01, 2017 :
Although I haven’t been much into reading lately this book really grabbed me. Couldn’t put it down. Three kids start off thinking of pulling a prank, which quickly goes wrong and leads them into something much bigger then they could ever have imagined. Had a great flow and kept me hooked from the first page.

Reviews average 4.7 out of 5 stars! Glad you enjoyed my book! And if you have not read it, download it and find out why it is getting such high ratings.

HOAXES- The Novel

It is 1966. You have pieces of wreckage from the UFO crash that happened outside Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. The Air Force and KGB will do anything to get it…
…and you are a young girl trying everything you can to fulfill your father’s last wish.

Mel has just moved in next door. She likes wearing sleeveless t-shirts, jeans, and converse tennis shoes, and throws a really mean curve ball, but that doesn’t stop Frankie from falling for her.

It is the summer of 1966 and there have been a rash of UFO sightings all over the country. Together, with their friend Beanie, they plan a hoax to make a fake UFO and launch it over Oswego Lake. But it all goes really bad, catching a tree and a house on fire. They know they are in big trouble, but before anyone finds out what they did, some really strange things happen. There are UFO sightings in the area, a reported nearby landing, and the apparent abduction of the neighbor from the very house they burned. It all becomes national news and throws the little town of Lake Oswego into a frenzy.

How could all this start from just their stupid, little hoax? Mel, Frankie, and Beanie have to find out. Each clue helps them to uncover how Mel’s father really died, and why. It sets them on a path to a discovery that involves the most famous UFO crash in history, the United States Air Force, and international espionage. Every step leads the kids toward unearthing a long-kept secret that puts them in great danger.

Readers say that if you liked the kids in the Harry Potter series, Netflix’s Stranger Things, or the boys in Stephen King’s Stand By Me, then you had better join Mel, Frankie, and Beanie on their mysterious quest in Hoaxes.

Read my book, then ask yourself–is this just a novel, or could it really have happened?

The Roswell Legacy book review

Having done extensive research back in the ‘90s on the Roswell crash, I was excited to finally have the opportunity to read this book. After all, if there were a single human focal point for the event, it would have to be Major Jesse Marcel, Sr.

I expected this book would finally provide the platform on which Major Marcel could share what happened that fateful day and in those that followed. As we all know, he was told to keep quite about anything relating to the crash and he did so for most of his life.

Through this book finally coming out, I expected he would have his day and share his observations, as only he could, on the timeline of the event through information and memoirs that he had held and saved, giving it to his son for publication after his death. I was hoping to hear how he felt when things were suddenly turned around at the press conference when the debris was switched and he was forced to have his picture taken with remnants of a weather balloon.

Thus, I am somewhat disappointed to find the book is really a memoir by Jesse, Jr. regarding his experiences and recollections. Though he does share his feelings on the effects of this event throughout his life and how he felt it affected his father, it lacks the insight I had hoped we would get from Jesse, Sr., held inside him ever since the he visited the crash site back in early July of 1947.

It does offer some good background about Jesse, Sr. prior to his station at Roswell Army Air Field. And Jesse, Jr. spends almost too much time defending his father against the many naysayers out there that really don’t deserve that much attention.

The book is worth the read since valuable information can still be found within it. Perhaps it is just me, and my disappointment that I am not getting some form of insight from a long-held diary by Jesse, Sr., rather than hindsight from Jesse, Jr.
