This is actually an audio documentary originally sold as a  two vinyl record set released in 1978. The total listening time is 90 minutes.  The individual segments are what they claim to be, interviews with actual  UFO close encounter witnesses. Included in this collection  are first-hand testimony of abductees whose stories are discovered while placed under hypnosis. High-end production values along with a terrific audio mix of music and effects makes it fun to listen to. What’s nice is that they don’t overpower the narrative.

The original sleeve contained two 33 1/3, 12” records and opened book-like after the shrink wrapped was removed. Printed on the inside gatefold are photos and drawings of saucers, aliens and witnesses.
Produced by: Investigative Research Associates, INC., Chicago Illinois*.

The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World’s
First Documented Alien Abduction
by Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden
(Betty and Barney Hill’s niece.)
Almost 60 years after the UFO abduction of Betty and Barney Hill, more and more people are convinced that UFOs are real and their existence is being covered up by the government. If you have doubts or questions about the Hill case or alien experiences in general, Captured! will give you the answers you’re searching for. The 1961 abduction of the Hills stirred worldwide interest, primarily because of the book The Interrupted Journey, the subsequent media coverage, and a 1975 TV movie, The UFO Incident. The case is mentioned in almost all UFO abduction books. It also became a target for debunkers, who still attack it today. But the complete story of what really happened that day, its effect on the participants, and the findings of investigators has never been told…until now.

Extraterrestrial Contact: What to Do When You’ve Been Abducted
By Kathleen Marden
It has been 20 years since the publication of How to Defend Yourself Against Alien Abduction by Ann Druffel. This new book by UFO researcher Kathleen Marden is the handbook for this generation. It is the essential reference guide for those who have experienced contact with nonhuman intelligent entities, families and friends of those “experiencers,” and anyone interested in alien abduction/contact and UFOs.

How to Defend Yourself Against Alien Abduction
By Ann Druffel
In 1988 Ann Druffel, who has researched UFOs for 40 years, discovered a little-known fact that had been drowned in abduction hysteria–documented evidence that people have successfully fended off attack by the “greys,” the short, big-eyed aliens now familiar through so much popular media. Using her database of 250 case studies, including 70 “resisters,” Druffel has ascertained 9 techniques that witnesses use to ward off alien entities and even break off abductions in progress. And perhaps even more astonishing, this evidence points to the possible true identity of the greys and their link to the abducting entities of myth and folklore.

Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers: The Truth Behind the Misinformation, Distortion, and Derision by Debunkers, Government Agencies, and Conspiracy Con-men
by Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden
The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the U.S. government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up. And a few professional writers have helped to successfully label any scientists who have been persuaded by the evidence and brave enough to take a stand as unscientific charlatans, fanatics, and kooks.
