Radio DJ, actor and presenter Craig Charles is to front a new 10-part series for Sky History, to be broadcast in early 2022.
Craig Charles: UFO Conspiracies follows long-time UFO enthusiast Craig and astrophysicist Sarah Cruddas as they scrutinise evidence relating to some of the most perplexing UFO encounters of the past and present, revealing never before heard testimony to separate fact from fiction.
Each episode will see Craig and Sarah tackle one major UFO sighting in the specially created ‘Investigation Hub’, sifting through a range of evidence to determine whether there is an earthly explanation for it or whether it is beyond the reach of conventionally understood science.
Charles and Cruddas investigate notorious cases including the US Defence Department’s leaked footage of unidentified aerial vehicles buzzing around US warships off the coast of California in 2004 and the infamous Rendlesham Forest incident of 1980.
Craig Charles said: “The making of this programme was a thrill for me and led us on an extraordinary journey into the unknown. We were given the opportunity to examine some of the most unbelievable cases from around the globe and heard mind-blowing first-hand witness testimony...
“Working with Sarah and using her scientific scrutiny, we examined a mountain of evidence in which we were able to hunt for the truth about what is really going on in our skies. The whole experience was eye-opening and sometimes left us unable to come to an earthly conclusion!”
Sarah Cruddas said: “We are living in an incredible time for space exploration, but we are only just beginning to scratch the surface of what is out there, what it is that we are a part of. This programme has been a unique opportunity to delve into the some of those unknowns...
“Marrying together Craig’s passion and enthusiasm with my own thirst for evidence and an application of science, we have been able to explore what is going on in our skies like never before. Some of the answers are likely to be stranger than anything you could ever imagine.”
