Martin Willis: Hi, everyone. I have my first overseas Skype to Philip Mantle. How you doing, Philip.


Philip Mantle: Good evening, Martin. I’m fine, thank you.


Martin: Thanks for joining us and I saw some information on your book coming out, and it’s about the Alien Autopsy and your research in it, and you were there from the very beginning when that came out, is that right?


Philip: That’s correct. I mean, I was first contacted by the film’s owner, which is a chap by the name of Ray Santilli  way back, now, in 1993, a good couple of years before the film ever surfaced on television, so it was right there from the very beginning, right in the thick of it all the way through.


Martin: Wow, and so you had to keep quiet about it for two years.


Philip: Well, basically, what happened was I was Press Officer for the British UFO Research Association and we’d had a letter from Ray Santilli’s  company asking if we’d be interested in helping with a UFO documentary, so I telephoned him. He was in London. I lived 200 miles north of London, and we had a few polite conversations, and over the course of a couple of months he went on to say: well, actually, Philip, I have film of the UFO crash at Roswell, and not only that the creatures that were autopsied, so what I did in those days, this is the days before email and Skype, I quoted what I could remember from our conversations with Santilli and I informed a small number of people, both here in the U. K. and in the United States and one or two other places privately. Keep this under wraps, but here we have this gentleman whom I’ve never met. He runs this company, and this is what he’s claiming, so I didn’t go public with it but I did keep a number of close colleagues informed of what Ray Santilli was claiming, at that time.


Martin: So, can you tell the listeners how you got involved and how this whole thing came about, please?
