Award winning journalist investigates UFOs
Michael is joined by Ross Coulthart, author & award-winning investigative journalist, who has spent 2 years investigating the story of UFOs, which he says became the most confronting and challenging story of his career.
Mr Coulthart has been intrigued by UFOs since mysterious glowing lights were reported near New Zealand’s Kaikoura mountain ranges when he was a teenager.
The 1978 Kaikoura sighting is just one of thousands described around the world since the 1940s, and yet research into UFOs has traditionally been seen as the realm of crackpots and conspiracy theorists.
Then, in 2020, after decades of denial, the US Department of Defence made the astonishing admission that strange aerial and underwater objects frequently reported and videoed by pilots and tracked by sensors are real, unexplained and pose a genuine national security concern.
Ross Coulthart’s new book, In Plain Sight, is published by HarperCollins on July 28
