Film information

Story: This release was first broadcast as part of a 'Science Report' series on UK television in 1977. The supposed documentary uncovered a link between Britain's 'brain drain' of disappearing experts, climate change and the start of an extra-terrestial colony. The programme ended with the credit 'Anglia Television, April 1st 1977', and was in fact a Sci-fi drama, and a deadpan heir to Orson Welles' 'The War Of The Worlds'. But after its broadcast world wide that same week, this programme clearly showed how the medium can manipulate the message, as millions were fooled by the hoax which provoked front page headlines and has inspired conspiracy theories ever since.

Starring: Tim Brinton, Gregory Munroe, Carol Hazell, Shane Rimmer

Directed by: Christopher Miles
