Alternative 3 was the last in series of documentaries called the Science Report. Alternative 3 began with the investigators researching an alleged ’brain drain’ in Britain (talented individuals emigrating to other countries), and then discovering that these people had disappeared.
Further research focused on their
allegedly being taken off to work in undisclosed locations. More
investigation revealed that the Earth’s environment is undergoing
great change due to greenhouse gases and that a top secret effort is
underway to move small numbers of the human population to safe
The documentary interviewed an alleged US astronaut ’Bob Grodin’ who claimed that when he went to the moon that others were already there in words that echoed Neil Armstrong’s alleged comments when on the moon:
The documentary finished with a film clip that was allegedly smuggled out by a murdered British scientist that showed a US landing on Mars and an astronaut announcing:
Alternative 3 caused an immediate uproar since the Science Report was a well respected series of science documentaries that had a track record for informative stories that were credible and very well researched.
In 1977 there was no such thing as the internet and cable TV so shows like the Science Report were very influential and reached a wide audience. Anglia television began telling worried telephone callers that the show was fiction and that the investigators and people interviewed in the show were actors.
You can read a good summary of how Alternative 3 was hoaxed here.
The author Leslie Watkins, emigrated to
Australia, and then
explained that the book was ’fiction based on fact,’ and claimed
that the original show was also a fictionalized version of fact. For
many, the Alternative 3 documentary was just an elaborate hoax,
involving actors, and that Watkin’s was just an example of the
people involved trying to cash in on the documentary’s popularity.
First, the Science Report was a well respected British documentary produced by Anglia Television.
Let me now offer my reflections on what really happened with Alternative 3, and its exopolitical significance.
I believe that Alternative 3 was intended to disclose to the general public a truth that was too disturbing to be announced through conventional political channels. The ’truth’ was undisclosed scientific data that indicated that the Earth’s environment was rapidly collapsing as a result of various causes and that events had reached a point where devastating Earth changes were around the corner.
reached by government authorities was that there were going to be devastating environmental changes that would threaten the survival
of humanity on the surface of the Earth. Hence intensive efforts
were underway to prepare for such a contingency through the three
alternatives discussed in the Alternative 3 documentary and book.
Phillip Corso’s book,
The Day After Roswell, he described an ambitious
blueprint for a base on the Moon that was made possible by
extraterrestrial technologies recovered from the
While the book presents the Moon base as an unrealized project, the
implication that Corso is making with the inclusion of these
chapters is that the Moon base was indeed constructed but that he
couldn’t officially disclose this in the book.
The Tall Whites provided the technological information for constructing nuclear powered scout craft that could travel in nearby regions of the solar system, and even provided tours of the Moon and possibly Mars to USAF generals on their more advanced anti-gravity propelled scout craft.
Thus the Hall book series lends support to
alleged whistleblowers such as Michael Relfe who claim to have
traveled to Mars and served in a
secret human colony there. Hall also supports the testimony
of a former member of US Naval Intelligence,
William Cooper, who
claimed to have seen documents describing secret bases on the Moon
and Mars (see
here). It can be
assumed that extraterrestrials such as the Tall Whites provided
intelligence on the impending environmental catastrophe, and
probably struck deals with the
shadow government where both would
benefit in the event of such a global calamity.
There is much evidence to support each of these factors as possible
causes of devastating environmental change on Earth that were
thought to be inevitable so I leave it to the reader to research
each of these and their plausibility.
The idea was to put enough factual material in the documentary so that those that were alert enough, could take whatever measures they could to survive what was about to happen. At the same time, the documentary had to be obviously a hoax using actors playing fictitious personalities so that it could be easily dismissed by those who might panic if indeed there was truth to it.
That way the shadow government could get the word out while maintaining plausible deniability over the truth of what was claimed in the show. I think this best explains why the Science Report went to all the effort to produce Alternative 3, and ride out the predictable public backlash once viewers were told the show was a hoax.
To me, this explanation
is the most plausible as to why Anglia TV and the
Science Report went ahead with the production and airing of Alternative 3.
it’s been 27 years since Alternative 3 aired so if the
government were really behind it to promote some public awareness of
what they believed the evidence conclusively suggested lay just
ahead, how could their bleak assessments have been so wrong?
When you combine the bleak assessment that the shadow government reached, with predictions of impending environmental collapse by extraterrestrials who have communicated with contactees/abductees, and predictions of global calamity by a host of psychics throughout the 1980s and 1990s, then it becomes clear that the shadow government, visiting extraterrestrial races and psychics missed something vital in their predictions of an impending environmental catastrophe.
What factor or variable did the
shadow government, extraterrestrials and psychics miss in making
their bleak assessments about the future of humanity on the surface
The noosphere was an evolving composite of humanity’s thoughts, feelings and social relationships that evolved steadily upward towards a fuller manifestation of human potential. De Chardin’s thoughts on a ’global consciousness’ was independently supported by theorists such as Carl Jung who discovered archetypes of the ’collective unconscious’ of humanity. Rather than solely an abstraction dreamed up by progressive thinkers, the concept of a global consciousness is physically represented through the communications infrastructure of the internet.
The internet probably
more than anything else physically symbolizes the noosphere or ’global consciousness’ that
Chardin was arguing to be a critical
factor in the evolution of humanity.
It can be asserted that global consciousness somehow sufficiently impacted on the global environment to diminish, retard or even negate the environmental catastrophe predicted by researchers reporting to the shadow government, visiting extraterrestrial races, and psychics. It has been shown by a research project at Princeton University that major global events impact on the ’collective consciousness’ or noosphere.
Key events such as the
deaths of Princes Dianna and Mother Theresa, the
911 attack, major
earthquakes and other significant international events have a
measurable impact on global consciousness. So if global events
register or impact on global consciousness, can it work the other
way? In other words, can global consciousness impact on global
events in a way that significantly alters these?
Essentially, quantum physicists were discovering that the observer
of sub-atomic behaviors was a factor in understanding the behavior
of these particles. This realization opened the door to the idea
that consciousness impacts on the observed behavior of sub-atomic
particles. So going from sub-atomic particles to global events, it
can be asked whether changes in global consciousness impact on
So if there has
recently been some dramatic shifts in global consciousness, what
might have been driving this?
All these may be factors driving changes in global consciousness,
but the most instrumental factor has been the communications made
possible by the develop of the internet.
More significantly, the internet has made it
possible for communities to share information and take action to
deal with environmental problems as they arose. The internet has
been a dramatic technological development that has made possible
rapid changes in global consciousness. This change is unrivalled in
human history and perhaps only the establishment of the printing
press in the 15th century rivals it.
This is a difficult question to answer, but it nevertheless points to the idea that changes in global consciousness are an important factor or variable to take into account in analyzing the impact of possible environmental changes on Earth.
The fact that numerous groups around
the planet began to take a keen interest in the environment and
assisting with problems as they were brought to the public’s
attention, demonstrates the power of global consciousness when
focused on a particular set of problems such as the global
environmental changes. In my view, the failure of shadow government
to factor in ’global consciousness’ into their assessments of a
potential environmental collapse, accounts for why they were
dramatically mistaken in planning for inevitable destructive
Indeed, the Charles Hall books point to Tall White extraterrestrials, and likely other extraterrestrial races, having imposed agreements on US shadow government authorities that involve the extraction of significant earth resources to off world locations in exchange for technological know how and permission for extraterrestrials to be housed in bases on Earth (see here).
strong evidence in Hall’s revelations that the Tall Whites are
conducting an interstellar trade using large quantities of Earth
resources possibly including abducted civilians. Significantly, Hall
describes the powerlessness felt by the military in dealing with the
technological superiority of the Tall Whites. These themes are
vividly demonstrated in the recent movie,
The Forgotten, which
dramatizes the phenomenon of civilians being abducted by
extraterrestrials who disappear with records and memories of them
being deleted, while national security agencies are powerless to
stop the extraterrestrials responsible for this.
While national security agencies may
feel powerless to stop such practices due to their perceived
technological inferiority, global consciousness may once again play
a constructive role in warding off a threat that is still not
disclosed to the general public. Using global consciousness against
the threat posed by resource hungry extraterrestrial visitors may be
the best defense national security agencies have in warding off a
threat that still remains undisclosed to the general public.
Global consciousness is an important strategic variable in
dealing with global challenges posed by the extraterrestrial
presence, and requires a profound reversal of the non-disclosure
policy in place for more than five decades by the US and other major
