UFOs: Tom Snyder interviews J. Allen Hynek and Peter Gersten

We have hundreds of taped [VHS] TV shows about UFOs, from 1976 forward.

We had uploaded many to YouTube about seven years ago but those videos were eliminated.

We're now uploading a few, again, and this one with Tom Snyder interviewing J. Allen Hynek and attorney Peter Gersten, from the early 1980s, provides some intriguing information about UFO sightings and the U.S. government cover-up(s) of the sightings, even after FOIA disclosures. Peter Gersten provides details.

J. Allen Hynek tells Snyder what researchers needed to do to ultimately explain the UFO phenomenon but all these years later his astute advice is still being ignored.

The video ends abruptly after about fifteen minutes from, I think, YouTube's previous limit on video timing.

  • I don't think we'll ever see the likes of the Tomorrow show on network TV again. Pity. Nice post Richie!

  • Thanks, Frank...

    Your Facebook link might provide some fans for the sadly departed Tom and J. Allen too.

    (We have other Snyder UFO interviews, which we'll be adding to YouTube upcoming.)

  • Interesting interviews. Gersten over-emphasised those documents a bit. According to Phil Klass, a lot had nothing really useful about UFOs. Some did, but even they stopped well short of proving a grand UFO cover-up. I expect the great majority were trivial routine messages, offering little useful UFO information.

    Hynek was better. This was the early days of CUFOS. He hoped his well qualified scientific contacts would soon help to resolve the enigma, but it didn't happen.

    Really we are hardly any further forward than we were when the interviews took place in the early 80s. Are we?

  • That's the point of the video, I think, Christopher: we are nowhere further along with an explanation or mode of research that is viable than we were about 30 years ago.
