On this DVD, we are given an artistic reenactment of this landing near the end of the documentary. It follows almost word-for-word the text of Chapter 18 of Emenegger's book. AND, if I am not mistaken, it appears that a portion of the ACTUAL film footage is presented--namely, the scene inside a building when someone picks up a camera and runs to the windows. If you slow down this brief segment of film, you can observe a craft bobbing up and down over the runway outside!
Another reason to watch "UFO'S: It Has Begun" is that we are given an opportunity to see J. Allen Hynek, Jacques Vallee, Lonnie Zamora, and other important names in the history of UFO's, as themselves. We are also taken to the exact spots where famous landings or sightings occurred. So, this DVD definitely contains film footage of historic value.
The second documentary on this DVD, "UFO Syndrome," is also interesting from an historic viewpoint.Read more ›
Nice to see good prints of these films. They obviously held on to Rod Serling's footage from 1975, he looks like he is behind the 1970s version of the Doctor Who opening credits. Also good to see Jose Ferrer and Burgess Meredith taking part.
Great narration by cult favorite Anthony Eisley as well as some interesting interviews.
The reason why I rated this DVD at 4 stars is due to the unsatisfactory conversion of the original footage to the modern TV format. The original footage was shot in 3:2 aspect ratio - which was standard until recently (the widescreen TVs first became popular at the beginning of 2000s). The publishers of this DVD "converted" both documentaries to a widescreen format. Unfortunately the conversion consisted of simply removing the bottom and top parts of the original picture. This is unfortunate as in few instances one can't see (or read) what the narrator refers to but was part of the original footage.
Another unfortunate aspect of the conversion is the increased color saturation. Both documentaries have been made more colorful. That is the intensity of the colors have been increased (not to look outdated I suppose).
Personally I always prefer to see any re-released material as close to its initial state as possible. As that gives me a more authentic representation of the original product.
