In the early 1960s, UFO contact began its transformation from benign encounters with human looking beings, to the more terrifying incidents involving non-human entities forcing bystanders on board, and subjecting them to medical examinations.

We’ve examined the abduction of Antonio Villas Boas from his tractor early one morning in 1957, but the subject of tonight's episode was groundbreaking. Betty and Barney Hill were an unassuming interacial couple from New Hampshire that didn’t stick out in anyway. They were on their way home from a short vacation in Niagara Falls and Montreal, when a single light in the sky would change their lives forever.

When you hear the name Betty and Barney Hill they are synonymous with the phrase alien abduction. And while they were not the first, their experience would be the archetype of all the others yet to come. In this episode we present the Betty and Barney Hill abduction complete with details you may never have heard before.
