Unsealed: Alien Files (2012–…): Season 2, Episode 11 - Blackouts! - full transcript

{\an8}THE MODERN WORLD IS
COMPLETELY RELIANT ON

ELECTRICITY. IT CONNECTS AND
POWERS OUR MACHINES.

>> ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WALK
DOWN THE STREET AND YOU CAN SEE

HOW DEPENDENT THE HUMAN RACE HAS
BECOME ON TECHNOLOGY.>> HIGH VOE

EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND
VULNERABLE TO MECHANICAL
+-

FAILURE. RECENTLY, THE U.S. HAS
EXPERIENCED MASSIVE POWER

BLACKOUTS, AFFECTING MILLIONS OF
PEOPLE AND THROWING THEIR LIVES

INTO SUDDEN CHAOS. BUT SOME
EXPERTS BELIEVE POWER GRIDS ARE

NOT FAILING DUE TO HUMAN ERROR.
THEY ARE BEING SABOTAGED BY

AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL THREAT.
SINCE THE 1950s, UFOs HAVE BEEN

REPORTED HOVERING OVER POWER
FACILITIES, DRAINING RESOURCES,



AND POTENTIALLY PLUNGING CITIES
INTO LAWLESS DARKNESS. DO

BLACKOUTS OCCUR AS A SIDE EFFECT
OF ALIEN TECHNOLOGY, OR IS THERE

A DARKER AGENDA AT WORK? JOIN US
AS WE REVEAL THE GLOBAL POWER

GRID UNDER SIEGE ON "UNSEALED:
ALIEN FILES."

A GLOBAL EFFORT HAS BEGUN.
SECRET FILES HIDDEN FROM

THE PUBLIC FOR DECADES DETAILING
EVERY UFO ACCOUNT ARE NOW

AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC. WE ARE
ABOUT TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH

BEHIND THESE CLASSIFIED
DOCUMENTS. FIND OUT WHAT THE

GOVERNMENT DOESN'T WANT YOU TO
KNOW. "UNSEALED: ALIEN FILES,"

EXPOSING THE BIGGEST SECRETS ON
PLANET EARTH.

ARGENTINA, NOVEMBER 2009.
HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARE OUT

WEATHERING A HOT NIGHT IN
THE TOWN OF JOAQUIN V. GONZALEZ.

SUDDENLY THE SKY BEGINS TO GLOW
AND HUNDREDS WATCH IN TERROR AS

A STRANGE, GIGANTIC, LUMINOUS
SHIP MOVES TOWARD



THE HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATION
ON THE JURAMENTO RIVER.

THE OBJECT HOVERS FOR SEVERAL
MINUTES AND THEN DISAPPEARS, BUT

NOT BEFORE OVER ONE MILLION
PEOPLE ARE PLUNGED INTO TOTAL

DARKNESS. DID A SINGLE UFO CAUSE
A BLACKOUT OF OVER 100 SQUARE

MILES?
>> IF EXTRATERRESTRIALS ARE

REALLY SHOWING UP, WE HAVE TO
ASK WHY. OBVIOUSLY THIS ISN'T

A SHOW OF FORCE BECAUSE LET'S
FACE IT, WE'D BE GONE IF IT WAS+

A SHOW OF FORCE. THEIR
TECHNOLOGY IS SO FAR ADVANCED

FROM US.
>> THE ANSWER MAY BE FOUND

DECADES EARLIER IN EVENTS THAT
TOOK PLACE ON U.S. SOIL.

ACCORDING TO A REPORT BY
THE NATIONAL INVESTIGATIONS

COMMITTEE ON AERIAL PHENOMENON,
THE 1950s EXPERIENCED A WAVE OF

UFO SIGHTINGS THAT WERE LINKED
TO ELECTROMAGNETIC ACTIVITY.

UNSEALED CASE FILE--
THE LEVELLAND, TEXAS INCIDENT.

LEVELLAND, TEXAS. NOVEMBER 2,
1957. DOZENS OF WITNESSES REPORT

LIGHTS IN THE SKY HOVERING FOR
OVER 3 HOURS. A SIGNED STATEMENT

BY A LEVELLAND PATROLMAN GIVES
TERRIFYING DETAILS OF

THE INCIDENT. "I SAW
A STRANGE-LOOKING FLASH, WHICH

LOOKED TO BE DOWN THE ROADWAY.
THE FLASH WENT FROM EAST TO WEST

AND APPEARED TO BE CLOSE TO
THE GROUND." AS THE LIGHTS

DESCEND TO A BUSY STRETCH OF
ROADWAY, 10 VEHICLES ARE STOPPED

DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS. RESIDENTS
ALL OVER TOWN REPORT POWER BEING

DRAINED FROM THE CAR ENGINES.
WHEN THE LIGHTS DISAPPEAR INTO

THE SKY, THE VEHICLES START AND
CONTINUE ON THEIR WAY UNDAMAGED.

AMERICA'S TOP SECRET UFO UNIT,
PROJECT BLUE BOOK, IMMEDIATELY

INVESTIGATES THE INCIDENT. THEY
DETERMINED UFOs MAY BE USING

A TYPE OF ELECTROMAGNETIC
INTERFERENCE. EDWARD RUPPELT,

FORMER CHIEF OF PROJECT BLUE
BOOK, ADMITS, "WE HAD REPORTS OF

RADIATION AND INDUCTION FIELDS
IN CONNECTION WITH UFOs."

THE 1957 WAVE OF ELECTROMAGNETIC
CASES PRESENTS, QUOTE, "A WHOLE

NEW DIMENSION TO UFO
INVESTIGATION." COULD THIS ALIEN

ELECTROMAGNETIC PHENOMENA BE
USED TO DISABLE MORE THAN CAR

BATTERIES AND HEADLIGHTS?
FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR,

THE INSTALLATION OF MASSIVE
POWER GRIDS ALLOWED AMERICA TO

TRIPLE ITS ENERGY CONSUMPTION.
COULD THIS SUDDEN LEAP IN ENERGY

USAGE BE ATTRACTING ALIEN
ATTENTION? EXETER, NEW

HAMPSHIRE, 1965, A SMALL
PICTURESQUE NEW ENGLAND TOWN.

BUT THE QUIET ATMOSPHERE IS
SHATTERED ONE AFTERNOON AS

MULTIPLE WITNESSES REPORT
A SERIES OF GLOWING ORBS

DESCENDING FROM THE SKIES AND
TAPPING DIRECTLY INTO POWER

LINES. LOCAL POLICE ARRIVE ON
THE SCENE AS AN AIR FORCE BOMBER

APPEARS IN THE SKY.
THE UFO QUICKLY FLIES OFF WITH

THE PLANE IN PURSUIT. BUT WHAT
HAPPENS JUST 9 WEEKS LATER WILL

TRANSFORM THE POWER INDUSTRY
FOREVER. NOVEMBER 9, 1965.

A MOTHER AND HER CHILDREN
OBSERVE A FIREBALL STREAKING

ACROSS THE SKY OVER SYRACUSE,
NEW YORK. AS IT PASSES,

THE LIGHTS IN THEIR HOME FLICKER
OMINOUSLY.

NOVEMBER 9, 1965.

THE LARGEST BLACKOUT
THE CONTINENT HAS EVER SEEN

DESCENDS ON NORTH AMERICA.
THE GREAT NORTHEASTERN BLACKOUT

PLUNGED 30 MILLION PEOPLE ACROSS
TWO COUNTRIES INTO TOTAL

DARKNESS. 8 EASTERN U.S. STATES
AND MUCH OF SOUTHERN CANADA ARE

LEFT WITHOUT ELECTRICITY.
SYRACUSE AIRPORT, NEW YORK.

PLANES BEGINNING THEIR DESCENT
ARE MET BY A PITCH BLACK

RUNWAY. WITHIN ONE MINUTE OF
THE BLACKOUT, PASSENGERS AND

THE DEPUTY AVIATION COMMANDER AT
THE SYRACUSE AIRPORT WITNESS

A MASSIVE 150-FOOT FIERY DISC
MOVING ACROSS THE SKY. AS

THE AIRPORT PLUNGES INTO
DARKNESS, A FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR

AND HIS STUDENT BEGIN THEIR
DESCENT TOWARD THE TARMAC.

WHILE PREPARING FOR LANDING,
THEY WITNESS ANOTHER STRANGE

GLOWING LIGHT OVER THE NEARBY
CLAY SUBSTATION, A SUPER HIGHWAY

OR POWER. THEN, AT 5:27 PM,
POWER CEASES FOR APPROXIMATELY

25 MILLION PEOPLE. NEW YORK CITY
RUSH HOUR DESCENDS INTO CHAOS,

LOADED ELEVATORS STOP IN
THE SHAFTS, AND 800,000

COMMUTERS ARE STRANDED IN SUBWAY
TUNNELS. ABOVE GROUND, STOP

LIGHTS FAIL, TRAFFIC JAMS
EXTEND MILES IN EVERY DIRECTION,

AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF
PEOPLE RUSH INTO THE DARK

STREETS. A BRIGHT LIGHT IN
THE SKY APPEARS ABOVE

THE DARKENED CITY. IS IT THE
SAME UFO WITNESSED AT THE CLAY

SUBSTATION, OR IS A SECOND
MYSTERIOUS CRAFT DRAINING NEW

YORK CITY OF EVERY KILOWATT OF
POWER? WHEN THE NEW YORK POWER

AUTHORITY DISPATCHES A TEAM TO
THE CLAY SUBSTATION, THEY ARE

ALLEGEDLY MET BY FBI AGENTS. BUT
WHILE LOOTING AND FIRES GRIP

THE CITY, THE POWER AUTHORITY'S
INVESTIGATION FINDS NOTHING OUT

OF THE ORDINARY AND POWER IS
RESTORED 13 HOURS LATER. THE FBI

REFUSES TO COMMENT OR EVEN
ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR INVOLVEMENT.

BUT WHY WOULD A POWER OUTAGE
EVEN REQUIRE MULTIPLE AGENTS OF

THE FBI? OVER THE ENSUING WEEKS,
A MEDIA FRENZY SPECULATES THAT

AN ALIEN CRAFT IS THE CAUSE OF
THE BLACKOUT. "LIFE" MAGAZINE,

ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED
MAGAZINES EVER PUBLISHED, RUNS

A PHOTO WITH THE CAPTION "COULD
THIS BE A UFO?" BUT IT ISN'T

UNTIL 3 YEARS LATER THAT
THE POSSIBILITY OF ALIEN

INTERFERENCE IS INVESTIGATED.
THE U.S. GOVERNMENT'S HOUSE

COMMITTEE ON SCIENCE AND
ASTRONAUTICS HOLDS A SPECIAL

SESSION. UNSEALED CASE FILE--
THE SYMPOSIUM ON UNIDENTIFIED

FLYING OBJECTS. WASHINGTON DC,
1968. JAMES McDONALD,

A RENOWNED PROFESSOR AT
THE INSTITUTE FOR ATMOSPHERIC

PHYSICS, SHARES HIS UFO
FINDINGS. McDONALD HAS BEEN

GRANTED UNPRECEDENTED ACCESS TO
EYEWITNESS TESTIMONY,

GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTATION, AND
EVEN THE TOP SECRET BLUE BOOK

FILES ON UFO ACTIVITY. McDONALD
WARNS "THERE IS A PUZZLING AND

QUITE DISTURBING COINCIDENCE
BETWEEN THE SIGHTINGS AND POWER

BLACKOUTS. GREATLY EXPANDED
ATTENTION TO THE UFO PROBLEM IS

URGENTLY NEEDED." McDONALD'S
FINDINGS MAKE HEADLINES AND SEND

SHOCKWAVES THROUGH THE AMERICAN
POWER STRUCTURE. THAT SAME YEAR,

RENOWNED PHYSICIST EDWARD CONDON
AND HIS TEAM PRESENT A HIGHLY

ANTICIPATED GOVERNMENT UFO
REPORT TO THE SCIENTIFIC

COMMUNITY. MANY BELIEVE
THE ANSWER TO THE UFO QUESTION

MAY FINALLY BE AT HAND. UNSEALED
CASE FILE--THE CONDON REPORT.

ONE CRITIC DESCRIBED THE REPORT
AS "THE MOST INFLUENCE PUBLIC

DOCUMENT CONCERNING
THE SCIENTIFIC STATUS OF THIS

UFO PROBLEM. HENCE, ALL CURRENT
SCIENTIFIC WORK ON THE UFO

PROBLEM MUST MAKE REFERENCE TO
THE CONDON REPORT." INDUSTRY

WELCOMES A SCIENTIFIC REPORT
BEING APPLIED TO THE UFO

PHENOMENON. ONE SUCH LEADER IS
THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY,

STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTANDING
INCREASING INCIDENTS OF UFOs

DRAINING POWER FROM CARS ALL
ACROSS AMERICA. NICAP,

THE NATIONAL INVESTIGATIONS
COMMITTEE ON AERIAL PHENOMENA,

OFFERS ITS HELP TO
THE GOVERNMENT IN STUDYING

THE ALLEGED SIGHTINGS AND THEIR
MYSTERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.

NUMEROUS TESTS AND STIMULATIONS
ARE RUN BASED ON

THE ELECTROMAGNETIC EVIDENCE,
BUT THEY ARE UNABLE TO DETERMINE

HOW THE CARS WERE IMMOBILIZED.
IT SEEMS THE DAY OF DISCLOSURE

COULD FINALLY BE AT HAND.

WASHINGTON DC, 1969. REPORTS OF UFOs
SIPHONING POWER, IMMOBILIZING

CARS, AND CAUSING CITY-WIDE
BLACKOUTS HAVE RAISED CONCERN

WITH BIG BUSINESS, MEDIA, AND
THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY. IN

RESPONSE, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT
COMMISSIONS THE CONDON REPORT TO

DETERMINE THE TRUTH. BUT THEIR
OFFICIAL FINDINGS MAY BE

ANYTHING BUT. UNSEALED CASE
FILE--THE CONDON REPORT COVER

UP. A LEAKED MEMO IS DISCOVERED
THAT RIPS THE CONDON

INVESTIGATION APART. ACCUSATIONS
EMERGE OF A GOVERNMENT COVER UP.

IN THE MEMO, ONE LEAD RESEARCHER
REFERRED TO THE SEARCH FOR

EXTRATERRESTRIALS AS NONSENSE.
NICAP IMMEDIATELY WITHDRAWS ITS

INVOLVEMENT, CLAIMING
THE INVESTIGATION IS A SHAM AND

NO REAL RESULTS WERE EVER
INTENDED. IN THE FACE OF

MOUNTING EVIDENCE AND HUNDREDS
OF EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS,

THE CONDON REPORT STILL STATES,
"NOTHING HAS COME FROM THE STUDY

OF UFOs IN THE PAST 21 YEARS
THAT HAS ADDED TO SCIENTIFIC

KNOWLEDGE. CAREFUL CONSIDERATION
LEADS US TO CONCLUDE THAT

FURTHER EXTENSIVE STUDY OF UFOs
PROBABLY CANNOT BE JUSTIFIED."

ON THE HEELS OF THE CONDON
REPORT, THE GOVERNMENT SUDDENLY

CEASES ALL INVESTIGATIONS INTO
UFO PHENOMENON. THE AIR FORCE

OFFICIALLY CLOSES PROJECT BLUE
BOOK ON DECEMBER 17, 1969. JAMES

McDONALD ADDRESSES THE MEDIA
BEFORE THE REPORT'S RELEASE AND

CLAIMS THE INVESTIGATIONS WERE
DESIGNED TO FAIL. A NEWSPAPER

ARTICLE OF THE DAY STATES, "HE
REPEATED THE ACCUSATION THAT

THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY
HAD ORDERED THE AIR FORCE TO

DEBUNK UFO REPORTS."
>> SO THAT WAS REALLY A POLICY

THAT WAS IMPLEMENTED BACK IN
1953 THROUGH THE CIA, AND

ESSENTIALLY, THAT CONTINUES TO
THIS VERY DAY, WHERE MOST

SCIENTISTS, MOST PEOPLE WHO
OCCUPY SENIOR POSITIONS IN

THE BUREAUCRACY OR IN THE MEDIA
OR ANY POSITION OF INFLUENCE, IF

THEY TALK ABOUT THIS TOPIC, THEY
WILL BE VERY EASILY RIDICULED.

>> IT APPEARS THE GOVERNMENT
WOULD GO TO ANY LENGTHS TO

CONTROL INFORMATION ABOUT UFO
PRESENCE. BUT WHAT IT COULD NOT

CONTROL WAS THE ESCALATING
THREAT. THROUGHOUT THE NEXT

DECADE, AMERICA DEVELOPS A VERY
DIFFERENT KIND OF POWER TO FEED

ITS INSATIABLE NEED, ONE THAT
MAY PUT US DIRECTLY ON

EXTRATERRESTRIAL RADAR. BY 1977,
TENSIONS OVER ECONOMIC CONCERNS

AND A NORTH AMERICAN ENERGY
CRISIS HAVE THE POPULATION ON

EDGE. U.S. PRESIDENT CARTER
INFORMS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

THE ENERGY CRISIS IS A CLEAR AND
PRESENT DANGER TO OUR NATION.

BUT IS CARTER REFERRING TO
THE MIDDLE EAST OIL CRISIS OR

AN ALIEN THREAT?
JULY 12, NEW YORK STATE.

THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS IS
STRANGELY QUIET. THE SERIAL

MURDERER KNOWN AS THE SON OF SAM
HAS RECENTLY CLAIMED HIS SIXTH

VICTIM. BUT NEW YORK IS FACING
AN EVEN MORE SHOCKING, UNEARTHLY

ASSAULT. WHILE DRIVING HOME,
A FAMILY WITNESSES TWO

UNIDENTIFIED CRAFT DESCENDING ON
THE NUCLEAR POWER PLANT AT

INDIAN POINT. THE HIGHWAY IS
SOON FILLED WITH PARKED CARS AND

ONLOOKERS WATCHING IN AWE AS
THE GLOWING CRAFTS HOVER OVER

THE PLANT. REPORTEDLY, THEY ARE
EERILY SILENT. RED, GREEN, AND

BLUE LIGHTS ROTATE ON THE TOP OF
THE CRAFTS. ARE THEY MONITORING

THE INDIAN POINT NUCLEAR
FACILITY?

>> THERE ARE UFO CASES WHERE
THEY WOULD APPEAR AND ACTUALLY

SHUT DOWN THE NUCLEAR FACILITY
SOMETIMES FOR MINUTES ON END.

THEY WOULD HAVE AN ACTUAL
PHYSICAL EFFECT ON THE BASE.

>> EVENTUALLY DOZENS OF
WITNESSES REPORT SEEING UFOs

THAT NIGHT. THE VERY NEXT DAY,
JUST 30 MILES SOUTH OF INDIAN

POINT NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, NEW
YORK CITY IS HIT WITH ANOTHER

DEVASTATING BLACKOUT. HUNDREDS
OF STORES AND HOMES ARE LOOTED.

RAMPANT ARSON DESTROYS ENTIRE
NEIGHBORHOODS. 35 BLOCKS OF

BROADWAY ALONE ARE DESTROYED.
POLICE AND FIREMAN STRUGGLE TO

MAINTAIN SOME KIND OF ORDER,
BUT THE CITY IS IN A STATE OF

TOTAL CHAOS. OVER 55 POLICE ARE
INJURED AND OVER 4,500 PEOPLE

ARE ARRESTED. IN THE MORNING, AS
THE SUN BEGINS TO RISE, SEVERAL

FIRES STILL RAGE ACROSS
THE CITY. NEW YORK CITY MAYOR

ABE BEAME TOLD THE PRESS,
"THE BLACKOUT HAS THREATENED OUR

SAFETY AND HAS SERIOUSLY
IMPACTED OUR ECONOMY. WE'VE BEEN

NEEDLESSLY SUBJECTED TO A NIGHT
OF TERROR IN MANY COMMUNITIES

THAT HAVE BEEN WANTONLY LOOTED
AND BURNED." NEW YORK CITY

EVENTUALLY REBUILT AND
RECOVERED. BUT IN THE DECADE TO

COME, MANKIND WOULD FIND NEW
WAYS TO FEED ITS THIRST FOR

POWER AND TECHNOLOGY. DID OUR
ESCALATING RELIANCE ON POWER

MAKE US EVEN MORE VULNERABLE TO
ALIEN INTERFERENCE? UFO

SIGHTINGS OVER NUCLEAR
FACILITIES ARE STILL OCCURRING

ALL AROUND THE WORLD. WHY ARE
UFOs ATTRACTED TO NUCLEAR POWER?

IS IT MERELY A CONVENIENT SOURCE
OF FUEL? IF SO, THE GREATER

QUESTION IS, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN
IF OUR NUCLEAR OUTPUT FAILS TO

MEET THEIR INCREASING NEEDS?

EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT UFOs MAY

HAVE BEEN SIPHONING ENERGY FROM
OUR INFRASTRUCTURE GRID FOR

DECADES, CAUSING DEVASTATING
BLACKOUTS AND WIDESPREAD CHAOS.

AS OUR DEPENDENCE ON TECHNOLOGY
INCREASES, SO DO OUR ENERGY

NEEDS, FROM COMMUNICATIONS TO
FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS TO

HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOMS. EVEN
THE POLICE AND MILITARY RELY ON

COMPUTERS AND ELECTRONICS TO
SERVE AND PROTECT THE POPULOUS.

A GLOBAL BLACKOUT WOULDN'T
MERELY DISABLE US, IT WOULD

PARALYZE US. WE WOULD BE
COMPLETELY VULNERABLE TO ATTACK,

FROM WITHIN AND WITHOUT.
BUT WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE?

>> HOW MUCH ENERGY DOES IT TAKE
FOR A CRAFT TO GO 5,000 MILES

AN HOUR, 10,000 MILES AN HOUR?
OBVIOUSLY, HUGE AMOUNTS OF

ENERGY.
>> FUELING AN ALIEN SPECIES

CAPABLE OF TRAVELING ACROSS
MULTIPLE GALAXIES COULD QUICKLY

EXHAUST THE EARTH'S NATURAL
RESOURCES. AND IF EARTH IS NO

LONGER A SOURCE OF FUEL, WHAT
IS? THE SUN IS THE GREATEST

POWER SOURCE IN OUR SYSTEM,
PRODUCING 384.6 SEPTILLION WATTS

EVERY SECOND AND SUSTAINING ALL
LIFE ON OUR PLANET. BUT IN 2012,

NASA'S SOLAR DYNAMICS
OBSERVATORY CAPTURED FOOTAGE OF

WHAT APPEARED TO BE A UFO
CONNECTING TO THE SUN BEFORE

ACCELERATING OFF INTO DEEP
SPACE. IS THIS EVIDENCE THAT

THE SUN IS THEIR NEXT TARGET? IS
EVEN THE POWER OF A STAR ENOUGH

{\an8}TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF ALIEN
ENERGY NEEDS? EXPERTS BELIEVE

{\an8}THAT AN ALIEN SPECIES MAY EVEN
BE ABLE TO DRAIN THE SUN,

{\an8}THE VERY LIFE SOURCE OF OUR
PLANET. AND IF SO, ARE THEY

{\an8}PLANNING TO PUT HUMANITY IN
THE DARK ONCE AND FOR ALL?

{\an8}THIS IS "UNSEALED: ALIEN FILES,"
EXPOSING THE BIGGEST SECRET ON

{\an8}PLANET EARTH.
