Synopsis:
First broadcast as part of the "Science Report" documentary series, 'Alternative 3' uncovered what appeared to be an astonishing link between Britain's "brain drain" of disappearing experts, climate change and the start of an extra-terrestial colony. The programme ended with the credit "Anglia Television, April 1st 1977", and was in fact a sci-fi drama - a deadpan heir to "The War of the Worlds". But after its broadcast world-wide that same week, 'Alternative 3' clearly showed how the medium can manipulate the message, as millions were fooled by the programme which provoked front page headlines and has inspired conspiracy theories ever since.
