Documentary Description

Right away Clarke removes any doubt as to his opinion of UFOs – he states that he has been interested for 50 years and claims to have observed at least six. He even goes on to say, sightings are very common. He does, however, reserve his opinions concerning them; revealing more and more of his ideas on the subject as the episode progresses. Including the Robert Taylor incident and an interview with Kenneth Arnold.
