Go to the limits of human experience? and beyond. From the fringes of the galaxy to our own backyards, the UFO FILES searches for evidence of life beyond our world. Tracing the long, convoluted history of UFO encounters and research, this unique series opens new windows into the controversial field.
The flying saucer is the archetypical UFO, but it has also long been a dream of earthbound aviation designers. REAL UFOS reveals how the Nazis were the first to build a disc-shaped plane, and how the Americans, Canadians and Russians followed suit after the war. Once top secret, the existence of these planes is now common knowledge, and in this episode we will trace the Air Force's attempts to perfect the flying saucer--efforts which left many people convinced that the earth had been visited by extra-terrestrials.
