Anyone Remember Alternative 3?

It was branded as a hoax.

I dunno.

Sounds suspicious to me.

With pleasure CGK ...

Alternative 3 is a television program broadcast only once in the United Kingdom in 1977 and later broadcast in AustraliaCanada and New Zealand as a (fictional hoax?).

Never aired in United States!  

An heir to Orson Wellesradio production of The War of the Worlds.

Purporting to be an investigation into the UK's contemporary "brain drain",

Alternative 3 uncovered a plan to make the Moon and Mars habitable in the event of climate change and a terminal environmental catastrophe on Earth.

The program was originally meant to be broadcast on April Fools Day, 1977.

While its broadcast was delayed until June 20, the credits explicitly date the film to April 1. 

Alternative 3 ended with credits for the actors involved in the production and featured interviews with an American astronaut.

If you read about it the plot twist and turns and also has a lot of parallels to today. They were researching it in the 50's. Kinda creepy fascinating .
