    UFO Speaker: Nick Pope
    Former administrator and investigator of the British Ministry of Defense's UFO Project
    Emceed by Peter Davenport
    Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope used to run the British Government's UFO project at the Ministry of Defence. Initially skeptical, his research and investigation into the UFO phenomenon and access to classified government files on the subject soon convinced him that the phenomenon raised important defense and national security issues, especially when the witnesses were military pilots, or where UFOs were tracked on radar.

    While working on the MoD’s UFO project, Pope also looked into alien abductions, crop circles, animal mutilations, remote viewing and ghosts. He is now recognized as a leading authority on UFOs, the unexplained and conspiracy theories. He does extensive media work, lectures all around the world and has acted as presenter, consultant or contributor on numerous TV and radio shows.

At the time he was living in Houston, and was also working as a successful land developer in North Carolina. Initially an unwilling abductee, his experiences transformed once he was able to put aside rage and overcome fear. Jim began to understand he was encountering powerful technologically from intelligent advanced beings from other worlds.
