THE TENT FOOTAGE ON UK TV.
Last night the British cable TV station UK Horizons broadcast its
'Top Ten Hoaxes' show at 7.00 pm. One of the items briefly
discussed was the so-called 'Tent Footage' section of the Alien
This saw the first TV interview of Keith Bateman. one of the
co-owners at the time of AK Music, the company that faked the
Tent Footage. Bateman discussed how they had received film from
Santilli to clean and transfer to video. When looking at the film
there was nothing on it so they decided to have some fun at
They faked the Tent Footage and passed it back to Santilli
without him knowing what they had done.
This is in contrast to Robert Kiviat's 'World Greatest Hoaxes'
show of a few years back in the USA. Here one of the technicians
from AK Music, Elliot, who doubled as one of the 'actors' in the
Tent Footage, stated quite clearly that they had been paid by
Santilli to fake the film. Santilli, not being happy with it,
allegedly then went else where to see if someone could do a
better job. The result allegedly being the Alien Autopsy and
I briefly took part in last nights UK Horizons show but the fact
remains that it was the research conducted by myself and my
colleague Tim Matthews that uncovered the Tent Footage fake and
exposed it as such. The full story of this will form a full
chapter in our planned book.
The Alien Autopsy Film itself still remains unproven one way or
the other. To date no one has come forward to conclusively prove
it to be authentic or for it to be a fake. Indeed evidence is
available to support both points of view but no definitive proof.
Tim Matthews, myself (Philip Mantle), along with a number of
colleagues in different parts of the world are continuing our
research into this film in the hope that one day we will
eventually get to the bottom of it one way or the other.
I'd therefore still like to request that if you have any
information on this film to contact me at the earliest
