Alien Autopsy Film watched by 12 million ...

In 1995, a video showing the gruesome autopsy of an alien by ‘government pathologists’ in protective suits shocked the world – and made millions.
Now the film-maker (and ex-magician) behind it revealed how the ‘Alien Autopsy’ film fooled the world (and inspired a ‘classic’ film starring Ant and Dec).
Spyros Melaris says that the film claiming to show an alien body being examined in 1947 actually shows a foam body filled with cow and lamb organs from a local butcher.
Roswell UFO video faker finally reveals how he did it.
Melaris told The Sun that he considered using raspberry jelly for the ‘brain’ but rejected it as ‘too dark’ as he filmed in a north London flat in 1995. He spliced his film footage onto a 1947 Pathe newsreel to fool experts at Kodak – and a documentary on the film aired three times on Fox, being viewed by 11.7 million people.
The effort was privatised by Channel 4 by bringing in a company with "deep pockets" that could give the broadcaster a "stronger future", the Culture Secretary John Whittingdale has said.
Merlaris said, ‘Our whole film was made up but we hung it on little elements of truth.
‘Something crashed in Roswell and we pinned the film on this being a body that could have been picked up in that crash.’
Ray Santilli claimed to have received it from a cameraman who worked at Roswell – and it was broadcast on television in 33 countries.
Melaris sourced 1940s surgeons’ outfits and medical instruments from prop providers in the UK and USA.
The ‘government pathologists’ filmed dissecting the pale, potbellied corpse of the extraterrestrial being were his brother and then girlfriend in the Camden apartment.
In 2006, Santilli admitted it was fake – but said that it is a ‘staged reconstruction’ of a genuine alien dissection film he had been shown in 1992.
Melaris says, ‘It was a giggle. That was all it was. It was not supposed to last 22 years. It was supposed to last a week or 10 days.’
Melaris says it took him years to realise that Ray Santilli, who financed the film, had actually made millions from it. He now plans to write his own tell-all book.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said, ‘There is very little evidence to support the idea that a flying saucer crashed near Roswell in 1947, and the same applies to other flying saucer crash incidents.
‘Indeed, they can be regarded as part of an American folklore tradition that stretches back to 1897 when newspapers reported stories of ‘airships’ invading the skies and in some cases crashing.
‘The most famous one refers to a crash of an alien spaceship in Aurora, Texas, which was obviously a made-up story that cashed in on this craze. ‘This hasn’t stopped ufologists searching for the alleged grave of the Martian who was found inside this craft.
