Author Philip Mantle has released a new four-part documentary series available on Amazon and iTunes that looks into the "UFO crash" at Roswell, New Mexico fin 1947 and the controversial Alien Autopsy film released in 1995, which supposedly depicts a medical examination of an extraterrestial being.

Mr Mantle has published numerous books on the subject and is a former director of investigations at the British UFO Research Association.

He said: "This year is the 25th anniversary of the infamous alien autopsy film hoax. I was involved in it right from day one and I am known, among other things, as an authority on this film."

To coincide with the anniversary Mr Mantle has published a revised edition of his book Roswell Alien Autopsy: The Truth Behind the Film that Shook the World, as well as the documentary, which is available now.

Mr Mantle said: "The documentary was released in May. It was due to come out later in the year but with the lockdown in place and people sat at home it made sense to release it a little early.

"I'm still involved in UFO research and investigation and now that the lockdown is being eased I am willing to look into people's reported UFO sightings once again.

"The new book has gained a lot of interest from many different parts of the world, especially now that I have released a lot of new documentation in it.

"There are those that still believe that the alien autopsy film is the genuine article but now that I have released all of this new material there can be no argument that it is 100 per cent fake and all of those behind it are exposed in full."

UFO is the initialism used to denote "unidentified flying objects", a phenomenon that has its roots in Roswell, America in 1947.

There are an average of 70,000 reported UFO sightings every year, worldwide.

The most famous incident in UFO history is Roswell, in July 1947. After the incident, the US Air Force announced being in possession of a flying saucer but later changed its statement, saying it was a weather balloon.

Mr Mantle used the lockdown to finish two further books Intoducing UFOs: A Young Person's Guide and UFO Landings UK. There a no publishing dates yet for these two books, but Mr Mantle has sold the documentary rights for the latter and it expecting filming to begin shortly.
