Its still 1975 as we hop through some DJ air checks, a 1975 episode of “Another UFO” about the Travis Walton abduction of that year, with some unusual phone calls by local residents and Waltons relatives in which they describe the events as they are coming to light at the time.
International weapons sales are covered by Robert Calvert, and the proliferation of atomic power continues with some cold war ICBM launch control training.
