I was visiting the Open Minds website (thanks to BoA Audio) and noticed an article about this television show. An episode of Paranormal Witness aired featuring the Travis Walton abduction story. I had never heard of the show, but I've always loved Fire in the Sky and have been interested in the case since the movie came out. I had to watch it. The show impressed me quite a bit. The documentary series features those who have experienced the paranormal first hand and allows them to tell their sides of the stories uninhibited. The Travis Walton episode featured Travis, Mike Rogers, some of the other loggers, the sheriff, a deputy, the medical examiner, and the polygraph administrator. Each of them were allowed to tell the story the way they remembered it. It seemed like Travis was able to get his full story out without any interference from the film crew, as I've heard him tell the story before and it matched up.

There are no announcers, "experts", or spaz's running around the woods at night with infrared. Other than reenactments and occasional news/amateur footage/pictures, it's purely eyewitness accounts of the strange. I've now watched most of the series and find this simplistic style to be quite refreshing. According to the wikipedia page, the series has been picked up for a third season with 20+ episodes. I hope, Tim, that if you haven't been able to check it out yet, that you can do so soon. I think you'll like it a lot and maybe even get some show ideas from it. It would be pretty sweet if you could get ahold of a producer or somebody from the show. That would make a great episode of BoA - (If you do, make sure you tell them about skinwalker ranch, lol)

I just assumed it was more garbage like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObYL5YQi3lM so I've never tuned in. I'll reconsider that decision now. I'd certainly listen to Travis Walton.

I am pretty sure I remember network news (I think NBC since that's what my dad watched) reporting on the Travis Walton case when I was a 7 year old kid. I remember a news graphic of a bright disk with lines drawn on it, shooting a beam down (not animated) as the announcer spoke about it. It scared the crap out of me. I wish there was an easily searchable archive of old news footage.

EDIT:

Actually, I found the NBC News archives, but I haven't trolled through all of it yet to find the transcript of the Walton case.
