History's Greatest Hoaxes S01E01 (Alien Autopsy) - YESTERDAY


History’s Greatest Hoaxes
UK PREMIERE – NEW SERIES
Thursday 13th October, 7pm - YESTERDAY
S1E1/6. Alien Autopsy Film

This brand new and exclusive six-part series tells the stories of the world's greatest hoaxes through the eyes of the people who set them up, and those that shut them down.

These hoaxers are at the centre of the history of the time, caught up in historical circumstances and contexts that allowed their outlandishness to take root. What started out as harmless fun went on to have serious ramifications for history as a whole, and for those that were involved.

From Hitler and alien invasions, to alien autopsies and war-time subterfuge, History's Greatest Hoaxes tells the full stories behind some of the world's biggest ruses.

How did a film, presented by a dubious producer based in London and purporting to show an autopsy being performed on a dead alien come to convince large parts of the UFO-hungry public that it was authentic? Why did the producer’s reluctance to have the film authenticated and his string of broken promises not raise alarm bells? This episode looks at how a hoax that travelled the world and itself was the subject of a hoax some years later, but also the actual Roswell incident, which gave birth to all alien conspiracy theories back in the 1940s.

The Fastest People on Screen



We all love the idea of having a superpower and there are a range of super-human abilities seen on TV and in the movies.  One of the most popular powers depicted on screen has to be super speed, from comic book characters like The Flash to Disney’s Dash from The Incredibles. To celebrate the release of The Flash: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray and DVD now, we’re taking a look at some of our favourite, fastest characters:

Quicksilver (X-Men Apocalypse)
We last saw Quicksilver portrayed by Evan Peters in the latest X-Men adventure, X-Men: Apocalypse. In this interpretation, Peter Maximoff is an American teenager and mutant with the ability to move, think, and perceive at supersonic speeds. Having been recruited by Wolverine, we find out he is the son of infamous mutant, Magneto. Quicksilver is also played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Pietro Maximoff in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Dash (The Incredibles)
The youngest of our quick characters, Dash is the 10 year-old son of Mr Incredible and Elastagirl (AKA Mrs Incredible) of Disney’s The Incredibles. He’s a reckless and cheeky character who tends to get himself in trouble, especially for using his powers when he isn’t supposed to at school.

Agents (The Matrix)
Agents, who usually work as a trio, are guardians of the Matrix. They possess the extraordinary power of being able manipulate their surroundings; this includes superhuman strength and the ability to move quickly enough to dodge incoming bullets. However, they have their limitations as they can’t perform any other actions outside the boundaries of their programming.

Deathstroke (Arrow)
DC’s notorious assassin features in the TV series, Arrow, where he is portrayed by Manu Bennett, though he is often seen as one of Nightwing’s and Batman’s nemeses. Deathstroke is known for having superhuman strength, speed, agility, and durability. The villain has also appeared in Smallville and more recently, it has been announced that Joe Manganiello will play Deathstroke for the DC Extended Universe film series.

Superman (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice)
Superman is without doubt one of the most powerful superheroes of all time, last seen on screen when played by Henry Cavill in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He is capable of moving, reacting, running and flying at superhuman speeds, though not fast as the Flash on a planet, Superman can fly at speeds faster than light.

The Flash (The Flash)
Barry Allen, played by Grant Gustin, is a Central City police forensic scientist leading a reasonably happy life. However, this all changes when a massive particle accelerator accident creates a dark matter storm that strikes the forensic scientist — bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive.

The Best TV Spin-Off Shows


It’s no secret that TV spin-off shows can be a challenge to get right, and there are plenty of examples of failed attempts. That being said, some of the best shows have created equally popular spin-offs, from Cheers and Frasier to Dr Who and Torchwood. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of the second season of DC’s own epic spin-off THE FLASH on September 12, here are some of the best and most successful ones, past and present:

The Flash 
The TV series The Flash is a spin-off of fellow DC series, Arrow. Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), who also appears in Arrow, is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life. However, this all changes when a massive particle accelerator accident leads to Barry being struck by lightning in his lab. Coming out of coma nine months later, Barry finds that he now has the ability to move at superhuman speed and decides to become The Flash. The first season won the People's Choice Award for "Favourite New TV Drama".

Better Call Saul 
Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould recreated some of the brilliance of Breaking Bad in the spin-off prequel Better Call Saul. This series follows the story of small-time lawyer James Morgan "Jimmy" McGill (Bob Odenkirk) on his journey to becoming his alter-ego Saul Goodman. Saul is not the only Breaking Bad character seen in the series, drug lord Tuco Salamanca and hitman Mike Ehrmantraut also make appearances. The show is in its second series and has received critical acclaim.

Frasier 
Frasier was created as a spin-off of Cheers, continuing the story of psychiatrist Frasier Crane as he returned to his hometown of Seattle and started building a new life. It revolves heavily around his life as a radio host and his family, particularly his brother and dad. The series was critically acclaimed and became one of the most successful spin-off series in American television history.

Torchwood 
This spin-off, which starred John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness and Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, originated from the 2005 revival of Doctor Who. It was highly successful and ran for 4 series following the adventures of a small team of alien hunters, who make up the Torchwood Institute.

Fear the Walking Dead 
The hugely popular zombie apocalypse series The Walking Dead produced a companion series and prequel, Fear the Walking Dead. Set in LA, a dysfunctional family composed of high school guidance counsellor Madison, boyfriend Travis, daughter Alicia, drug-addicted son Nick, and Travis' son from a previous marriage, Chris are forced to fight for survival during the onset of the zombie apocalypse. Due to its popularity, the show has recently been renewed for a third series.

Ashes to Ashes 
The BBC crime drama served as the sequel to the much celebrated Life on Mars, with 3 seasons, coming to an end in 2010. Swapping his Ford Cortina for an Audi Quattro, DCI Gene Hunt, (Philip Glenister) finds himself on the mean streets of 1980’s London. Hunt is joined by a new female detective, DI Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes).  Drake, like Sam Tyler in Life On Mars, has travelled from the future after being shot in 2008.

Angel
From the same creator as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon, Angel focuses on the vampire character of the same name as he moves to LA in a quest for redemption. The story follows Angel as he helps the downtrodden citizens of LA by averting the supernatural creatures that prey on them, in the hopes of making up for his past evil deeds.

Top 10 Star Trek inspired films and television programmes


For fifty years Star Trek has both attracted and created fans of science fiction. Any true Star Trek fan will tell you that the series has inspired numerous films and television shows with its high tech fantasy and boundary breaking plots.

In honour of the 50th anniversary of the series, and the release of the 50th Anniversary TV and Movie Collection on Blu-ray on 5th September, we have compiled a list of the top 10 Star Trek-inspired films and television programmes spanning decades of entertainment history.


1. Star Trek: The Original Series 1966 – 2016 (TV series & Films)

The beginning of possibly the most successful franchise ever, Star Trek: The Original Series was rated the greatest cult show in history by TV Guide in 2004. It maintained its number one spot when the magazine revised the ranking in 2007. It is hard to believe that when Roddenberry first presented the original series to CBS, CBS turned it down and went with Lost in Space instead. The cult following that now spans over 5 decades and across the world was a surprise to all.

An interesting fact about The Original Series is that Roddenberry originally wanted Spock's skin to be a dark red or at least to have a red tint. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) in the world of black and white television the idea was immediately abandoned!


2. Doctor Who 1963-1989 & 2005 - present (TV Series)

Speaking of cult followings, Doctor Who attracted a similar adoring audience from its birth onto small screens. Even now, its influence is undeniable; "Bow ties are cool”, said Matt Smith in his first appearance as The Doctor and bow tie sales shot up by 94% within a month!

Fans have followed the thrilling adventures of a Gallifreyan Time Lord only known as The Doctor and his ever-changing companions for over 50 years. The programme was rebooted in 2005 to much critical acclaim, and new series subsequently saw Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi take the helm as The Doctor.


3. Galaxy Quest 1999 (Film)

A spin-off from a popular TV series, Galaxy Quest received its cinematic debut in 1999 and featured many of the original cast. The success of the film spawned 18 annual conventions around the globe which fans flock to every year.

Director Dean Parisot and star Tim Allen revealed in interviews that the original tone of the film was much darker, with more scenes of violence. After test screenings, the film was recut to emphasize the comedy and obtain a PG rating. This intergalactic adventure, which interestingly was also the feature film debut of Justin Long, has now officially reached cult status!


4. Firefly 2002-2003 (TV Series)

Five hundred years into the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft try to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy smuggling cargo and occasionally people. The crew’s evasion of warring factions and agents of the notorious ‘Alliance’ had viewers hooked and just as the ‘Alliance’ did, fans were tracking every move of this series. The show became an unprecedented cult hit and culminated in the 2005 film, Serenity which was also created by legendary writer and director, Joss Whedon.


5. Serenity 2005 (Film)

In this sci-fi adventure, the crew of the ship Serenity tries to evade a vicious assassin sent to recapture one of the crew members, a young girl called River.

The feature film was a spin off from cancelled television series Firefly, and embraced the western genre alongside its science fiction roots. Interestingly, the DVDs of Firefly and Serenity were flown up to the International Space Station by astronaut Steven Swanson on board the shuttle Atlantis during its June 2007 STS-117 mission.


6. Back To The Future 1985 – 1990 Trilogy (Films)

This trilogy details the infamous adventures of Marty McFly, a 17-year-old high school student who accidentally travels 30 years into the past in the original film. Featuring a now legendary DeLorean, and the eccentric scientist Doc Brown, the films have gone down in sci-fi history. You wouldn’t believe that the script for the first film was rejected over 40 times by every major studio before finally being made in 1985.


7. Stargate SG-1 1997-2007 (TV Series)

This thrilling and action-packed TV series follows the adventures of a secret military team, SG-1, formed to explore the universes made accessible by recently discovered “stargates”.
The franchise began with the film Stargate (2007) and produced two further spin-off series including Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe.

Producers of the Stargate SG-1 kept up with the opinions of their fans. The episode “Ascension” was directly inspired by ideas left in message board comments, showing the commitment and dedication given by the producers as well as the overwhelming fan base.


8. Battlestar Galactica 2004-2009 (TV Series)

This update of the late-1970s series takes an unquestionably darker tone as what's left of humankind struggles for survival against the robot Cylons who have killed millions. Also, in a strange link with No. 5, when character Laura Roslin goes to the doctor’s and finds out she has cancer, the ship from Joss Whedon’s series Firefly can be seen landing through the main windows.


9. Guardians Of The Galaxy 2014 (Film)

An unlikely group of individuals including a talking tree and a genetically modified raccoon are forced to work together to stop a fanatical warrior from taking control of the universe in this modern interpretation of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy comic book characters.
Although the film was popular, and crossed the $700 million worldwide box office mark, it was the sound track that proved a truly exceptional hit... Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 reached the top of the Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album in history consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the chart.


10. Andromeda 2000 – 2005 (TV Series)

Andromeda shares a deeper tie to Star Trek than just being set in outer space; it was based on the notes Gene Roddenberry left behind.  The series that documents the adventures of Captain Dylan Hunt and his crew members as they pilot the Andromeda Ascendant thousands of years in the future, was heavily compared to Star Trek. The show stirred up attention for also using Star Trek’s main writer Robert Hewitt Wolfe, which led to parallels being drawn between the two show’s key characters - Captain Dylan Hunt and Captain Kirk.

Although Andromeda didn’t garner the same commercial success as Star Trek, it ran for 5 series, was re-syndicated on multiple networks and received several awards and accolades - proving that there is still a healthy appetite for sci-fi series!
