The world was shocked in 1995 when a film emerged of an alleged post mortem being carried out on an alien, following an apparent UFO crash in the New Mexico desert in 1947.

It emerged, of course, that the Roswell film was faked, but this intriguing documentary, kicking off a series on famous hoaxes, features an interview with its producer, Ray Santilli.

He still insists that a few frames are genuine and that he had to make the reconstruction because the original film he’d bought from a US Army cameraman, who shot the autopsy, was damaged.

Whatever the truth of the affair, it’s undoubtedly a great story, still fascinating all these years on.
