The much anticipated Roswell series on the above show began Saturday, 12/12/20.
It, the show, was draggy and, as usual, with such shows, muddled with segments presented then abandoned and brought forward again.
But, despite the off-putting appearance of Don Schmitt at the outset, and throughout, the show had some obscure and unknown new items about Roswell.
The host of the presentation, a former CIA guy is pleasant, moderate, and sensible and my pal Kevin Randle was on hand, a nice touch.
One thing that stood out, for me, was how old-timers, who were around during the 1947 “event,” kept referring to statements by their relatives or friends that had them referring to the thing supposedly crashing or at the center of their reminiscence as a UFO, not a flying disc or flying saucer.
The UFO sobriquet was not in use in 1947, having been coined by Blue Book head Ed Ruppelt in the 1950s.
This reference by almost all those interviewed indicated an obsession with later material on Roswell, not an actual recall of conversations at the time of the incident: 1947.
The obsession with a “diary” of Jesse Marcel proved nothing, except that he made non-Roswell notes during the 1947-1948 time frame.
Those things aside, I found the show almost interesting, and look forward to the installment that deals with the Ramey memo, which is said to be eye-opening.
What’re your thoughts, if you saw the program?
