Our first new video catalogue contains 38 endearing episodes of ‘The Adventures of Skippy’, as well as ‘Skippy the Movie’ first produced in the 1990s. The episodes follow on from the much-loved original 1960s ‘Skippy’ series and developed a widespread following when first broadcast.
Our second video catalogue contains captivating footage known as ‘Alien Autopsy’ as well as fascinating documentaries featuring this 1990s autopsy of an extraterrestrial body alleged to have been recovered from the infamous UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico. The documentary about the autopsy, presented by Jonathan Frakes, was widely considered to be one of the most controversial TV documentary specials ever aired on US Prime Time television. The autopsy footage was later used in the movie ‘Alien Autopsy’ starring popular television personalities Ant & Dec.
