Presented by BBC Radio DJ Craig Charles, alongside renowned space journalist, astrophysicist and award-winning author Sarah Cruddas, Sky HISTORY evaluates evidence to uncover whether unexplained aerial phenomena are prowling the skies above us and, more importantly, why?
In each episode, former Coronation Street and Red Dwarf star Craig investigates some of the most iconic and perplexing extra-terrestrial incidents of recent years, many of them from the UK, calling on Sarah’s scientific expertise along the way.
The series investigates UFO hotspots in Ireland and Scotland, a village in South Wales that seemingly witnessed the military engage in armed conflict with a UFO, as well as a spate of unexplained sightings in Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Puerto Rico and Chile.
With evidence including never-before-heard testimony and disturbing documentation, the team scrutinises each UFO sighting in a specially created ‘investigation hub’, sifting through a range of materials to determine whether there is an earthly explanation for it or whether it is beyond the reach of conventional science.
