"Alternative 3" was the final documentary done by the well respected "Science Report" of Anglia Television in England on April 1st 1977. Within an hour of broadcasting the television station issued a hurried statement stating that the show was a hoax.
We believe that the film is 95% fake but that 5% of it is the most important footage of the 20th Century and totally accurate. That is the NASA footage of people on Mars. We believe that much of the story is also the truth.
Besides filming the show on April 1st, the producers later said that the show was fake. It was quite evident at the end of the movie that something was fake because almost every single person filmed on the show was an actor, not genuine footage. It's a huge let-down when the list of credits role at the end, and a source of major confusion if you are expecting that this whole thing is real. We believe that there is no way that a respected documentary would be explicit that it was produced on April 1st unless it was decided beforehand that that was what they wanted to do.
The people who created this show risked a HUGE amount. They risked that people would never again trust that anything on TV or portrayed by science is the truth. However, we believe that somebody felt that this risk was worth taking because they needed to DISCREDIT THE NASA TAPE OF MARS and the story that went with it, before somebody got it out to the public.
Remember, in the times we are in, "DISCERNMENT " is a KEY ABILITY. Learn to trust your intuition, your gut feelings, your "knowingness" while at the same time being as rational as Sherlock Holmes.
The TV Show "Alternative 3" starts off as an investigation of the "Brain Drain" of England where hundreds of top scientists were leaving the country. Then it turns out that 24 of these scientists just vanished, never to be heard from again.
The name "Alternative 3" comes from the third of three different propositions to save the human species from extinction in the event that humans are wiped off from planet earth by global warming, catastrophes etc.
One man mailed a reel of video tape to an editor at a newspaper whom he was friends with. He then drives to meet with this editor but is killed in a car crash before he gets there. The Science Report TV Show gets hold of the tape but there is only static on the tape.
Later another man who has connections with NASA gives to the Science Report a decoder circuit board from NASA which makes the tape viewable.
What you will see on this tape may do for you what it did for me – my hair stood on end (I believe this is an indication of the truth). It shows the view through a window of some kind of flying vehicle that is flying over the surface of Mars. You see a blue sky and you can hear American and Russians in the background cheer that they have found life on Mars, when they see a small burrowing animal on the ground.
The 'bad guys' have a spiritual law that they have to tell you what is going on, it's just that they don't have to portray the truth in any particular way. Hence there is much truth in many movies. We believe that the movie "Total Recall" has elements of truth in it also. Al Bielek, survivor of the Philadelphia Experiment, said that he remembers being taken to Mars and seeing ancient machines like those on Total Recall, and that these machines were used to recreate an atmosphere there, which had been locked up in the soil.
Interestingly, they mentioned this same theory in Alternative 3 – that the atmosphere had been locked up in the soil.
After the show, a book came out called "Alternative 3" by Leslie Watkins. Here is what Leslie Watkins had to say:

The Truth about Alternative 3 from its author, Leslie Watkins
(This article is taken from the Windwords newsletter) address not available
In our June issue, we told you about the controversial book Alternative 3, by British author Leslie Watkins. In out attempt to find out if the shocking theories in the book were true, we called Avon Books, the American publisher; they said the book was out of print in the states.
We called Penguin Books in London and found that it was listed on their NON-FICTION list.
A senior editor there told us that it was officially classified as FICTION BASED ON FACT.
The author's agent told us it was most definitely fiction.
We wrote to the author himself to try to get the real story, and here is the letter he sent us.
Dear Ms. Dittrich: Thank you for your letter, which reached me today. Naturally, I am delighted by your interest in Alternative 3 and by the fact that you plan to sell it in the Windwords bookstore. I will certainly cooperate in any way I can.
The correct description of Alternative 3 was given to you by the representative from Penguin Books. The book is based on fact, but uses that fact as a launchpad for a HIGH DIVE INTO FICTION. In answer to your specific questions:
1) There is no astronaut named Grodin. 2) There is no Sceptre Television and the reported Benson is also fictional. 3) There is no Dr. Gerstein. 4) Yes, a "documentary" was televised in June 1977 on Anglia Television, which went out to the entire national network in Britain. It was called Alternative 3 and was written by David Ambrose and produced by Christopher Miles (whose names were on the book for contractual reasons).
This original TV version, which I EXPANDED IMMENSELY for the book, was ACTUALLY A HOAX which had been scheduled for transmission on April Fools' Day. Because of certain problems in finding the right network slot, the transmission was delayed. The TV program did cause a tremendous uproar because viewers refused to believe it was fiction.
I initially took the view that the basic premise was so way-out, particularly the way I aimed to present it in the book, that no one would regard it as non-fiction. Immediately after publication, I realized I was totally wrong.
In fact, the amazing mountains of letters from virtually all parts of the world- including vast numbers from highly intelligent people in positions of responsibility-convinced me that I had ACCIDENTALLY trespassed into a range of top-secret truths.
Documentary evidence provided by many of these correspondents decided me to write a serious and COMPLETELY NON-FICTION sequel.
Unfortunately, a chest containing the bulk of the letters was among the items which were mysteriously LOST IN TRANSIT some four years when I moved from London, England, to Sydney, Australia, before I moved on to settle in New Zealand.
For some time after Alternative 3 was originally published, I have reason to suppose that my home telephone was being tapped and my contacts who were experienced in such matters were convinced that certain intelligence agencies considered that I probably knew too much.
So, summing up, the book is FICTION BASED ON FACT. But I now feel that I inadvertently got VERY CLOSE TO A SECRET TRUTH. I hope this is of some help to you and I look forward to hearing from you again.
With best wishes, Leslie Watkins
Captain Bill Robertson in a Lecture he gave in 1990 made these comments on the NASA footage which comes at the end of the Alternative 3 show. It would appear that Captain Bill believes the whole video to be true, but his comments are of interest never-the-less. (Source: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/pages/alternative3.html)
And you are going to see it and are going to see and analyze what it really means.
This is the supposed landing on Mars 1962 by the Americans. That's the tape.
Now the thing he said at the last, he says – Boy, when they take the wraps off this, it'll be the biggest day in history. 22nd May 1962, we're on Mars and we have life.
Now, we're gonna watch this – I'll show you something interesting. OK let's pause. All right, here you go. Look; let's first of all examine the possibility that this was made in Hollywood. If they did make it in Hollywood what would be the point of making it so secret that they had to kill people to keep it from being known? Would they just be doing it to…Why would they keep it a secret, if they made it in Hollywood? They would want everyone to know about it and say – Look we landed on Mars! and they never said that. So what would they want it for as a fake, and how could this professor have recorded it coming from outer space, this tape, if they made it in Hollywood, you see. So let's take their word for it is true. They did kill enough people, they threatened the radio station with closing the license – I mean the television with closing the license of the program, they did fire the people who worked on it. And when the book came out they banned it in America. So knowing all those indicators of a secret conspiracy going on, let's take it as a true tape, but let's analyze it as to what is the real truth.
Look at that porthole they are taking the pictures out of. That is not from an earth type spacecraft. That has a square, curved outer hull surface, and it's very thin as you can see. There's no bolts, you understand, and all that stuff they have on American and Russian spacecrafts. Right, it's very big. You remember the first spaceships that went up. They had little tiny holes in them like that with bolts, like on a ship. That's the first point I want you to see. Now I want you to see something else here. There, you see the curves? Aha, you see this – stand by to scan, that's what he said. Now watch this, watch what happens to the picture. See how slowly it's moving? America and Russia never had any spaceships that are landing on the Moon, landing on any other planet that could slow down and do this. Watch this: the ship is rotating, slowly. Then it stops – Stand by to move on. Watch… see there, now they're back on the landing pattern.
If you analyze this from an aeronautical point of view, you have the ship coming in. All of a sudden it stops, rotates around like this stand by to go-ahead, resume landing. Does that remind you of anything? It reminds you of the stories of "flying saucers". They go, they stop, they move around a little bit, they go. All right. What's that? (I never saw that one before.) OK, we go on with the analysis.
That, see this? Every time they change mode there's interference on the transmission, or they've stopped the transmission and started it again. This interference with any radio transmission frequency is caused by a high intensity electromagnetic field. Also this is in the stories of UFO reports where people's car radios stop and the pilots, their compass goes around like this. There are also stories written how, obviously, UFO's are controlled by high intensity electromagnetic fields. And if you were broadcasting from there back to Earth you would expect the broadcast to be interfered with every time they had to change the controls, altitude or path of the flying saucer, and it does!
And now… watch again. Now look how slowly it's going. Temperature 4 degrees Celsius, 21 km/h wind. 707,7 Mb air pressure. 760 (is normal), no 1013 Mb. This is only 7/10 as much as Earth. OK, next. I want you to observe this place they're coming toward. You didn't notice that, did you? There's a tower, like a control tower. And there are 1, 2, 3 pads to land on, but they are only round ones, and they look like they are a hundred or so feet in diameter, 30-40 meter or more. 1, 2, 3 and they're round. Now what could you land there if you have never been there before? Could they have built a landing base, if they had never been there before? Now watch this when they land: They get to static again, because they have to put in the electromagnetic field. So you don't see them actually landing there, but you can believe they are going to land on this one or one of these. Right. Watch that closely. You see that? There it is, there it comes. Stand by for landing. Let's do it again, so you can see it. There are: 1, 2, and 3. There's the building. Now they are obviously sitting on one of the pads looking out away from the building. And now they see the brown very closely. Americans… some kind of mole, a mole. OK, now.
What the cover-up was, what the secret of Alternative 3 was, which is still a secret, is that the Americans did get to Mars in 1962 with a radio and television camera, but they didn't make the ship. That was an alien flying saucer. You want to see it again? This is the big secret. That's what they didn't want anyone to know. They were just passengers. Imagine it…. on a flying saucer, you see it? The base, the little pads. OK.
So I told you it would be amazing. I took you on a videotrip on a flying saucer as the first thing. That's how they work, just like that, you see it from the inside. How did you like that trip? That was the big secret of Alternative 3. The Americans did not land on Mars. They took as passengers on a flying saucer. All this Alternative 3 stuff was cover.
