An event that happened 70 years ago will be commemorated with a series of programs to be televised by Destination America. The programs mark the 70th anniversary of news out of Roswell, N.M., that launched a worldwide obsession with UFOs.
“On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field announced that they discovered a U.F.O. in Roswell, N.M., only to retract the statement the following day,” the channel says in its announcement. “The event created a pop-culture frenzy shrouded in mystery and conspiracy that still ignites debate to this day.”
In honor of the occasion, Destination America is running a prime-time marathon of the documentary series “UFOs: Uncovering the Truth” on Saturday, July 8.
Here’s the schedule released today by Destination America:
