there are some things we mere mortals can't explain. >> ufos, i swear to god -- >> from mysterious lights in the sky -- >> it looked triangular in shape, and at each corner it had what looked like a red l.e.d. light. >> to a creepy night at the museum. >> the statue was actually moving. >> i thought someone was playing a trick on me. >> mythical beasts. >> what is that? oh, man. >> and monsters at sea. >> what in the heck is that? >> those things are big! >> you've got to be kidding. what is this? >> i'm convinced there's something in that lake. >> if it's real and true, i think a portion of the
5:01 pm
population would freak out. >> i got it on tape! i got it! >> "caught on camera: eerie and alien." an ancient statue -- >> people were describing this as possibly a poltergeist or a haunted case. >> it would act as an alternative for the spirit. >> shrouded in mystery. >> the statue was actually moving. >> people suggested it was the spirit of this individual returning to the statue. >> the year is 2012, and the manchester museum in england is under construction. >> to celebrate the gallery's 100-year anniversary,
5:02 pm
we decided to display all our archaeology and egyptology objects. we opened in 2012, and at that point i noticed something quite unusual happening in one of the cases. >> a ten-inch-tall egyptian statue dating back to 1800 b.c. is moving. >> i came in one morning, and i noticed that one of the statuettes that had been put on display the previous week was turned 180 degrees around in the case. >> dr. campbell price, the museum's egypt and sudan curator, returns the next day to an even eerier site. >> it was 45 degrees to the right of what i intended to be. i thought this was genuinely strange. i was baffled. i thought someone was playing a trick on me. >> if this is a home, it's an elaborate one. the display case is well guarded. >> there are two locks. one in the bottom of the case, one right at the top. to get right to the top, you need a ladder to open one at the top. then you have to turn the alarms off.
5:03 pm
>> a time-lapse camera is installed in the display case hoping to catch the prankster red-handed. seven days later, dr. price checks the footage. >> we got this very eerie-looking video of him spinning unaided while nothing else moves in the case. >> it's not something you can see if you see it in real time. you can only see it on the time lapse as it slowly rotates around to face the other direction. >> if this is not a hoax, some wonder whether something about the statue's history could be causing it to spin. >> the statuette represents a man named neb-sanu, a security guard, if you like, in ancient egypt. the idea of him spinning around, maybe keeping watch on other exhibits, is very appropriate for his function in ancient egypt. >> appropriate but spookily sinister. >> ancient egypt, especially museum objects from egypt, attract all kinds of wild theories.
5:04 pm
>> people immediately think it's a curse, it's haunted. >> the myth of the pharaoh's curse began in 1922 with the discovery of king tutankhamun's tomb. legend has it anyone who dares disturb the tomb of an ancient egyptian will suffer the mummy's wrath. >> there's a big story about how everyone who is connected with opening the tomb of tutankhamun met with a nasty, grisly end. >> several members of the archaeological team did in fact fall ill shortly after opening the tomb. and lord carnivan, who funded the dig, died just months later. it's said that at the moment of his death, every light in cairo went out. >> ancient egypt has always in some sense to people been unexplained, and we just sometimes like to believe mysterious things. >> but the curse of the pharaohs refers to mummies, not statues. or does it? according to dr. price, ancient egyptian statues like this one,
5:05 pm
were often buried alongside mummies. >> tomb robbery was really common in ancient egypt. the egyptians themselves knew there was a good chance that maybe something bad will happen to my body even if it is preserved after death, so i need a backup option. >> should anything happen to the body, they believed their spirit could transfer into the statuette. >> it would act as an alternative body for the spirit. >> the riddle of the spinning statue turns heads. >> the video became a big talking point. it went viral on the internet. >> and attracts the attention of ghost hunters and scientists vying to solve the mystery. >> it was only when we got a vibration expert in to install sensors under the case that we could really monitor the reason why the statuette was moving. >> scientists now believe that visitors rather than vexations are to blame.
5:06 pm
>> footfall causes vibration. there are also cars and vehicles outside that also cause vibration. even subtle vibration at night. that's why i think he was moving a little bit even during the night. >> but if vibrations are causing this statue to move, why are the others remaining still? >> the statuettes's base is not flat, it's convex, whereas other pieces in the case are flat and are more secure. >> one mystery remains -- why did it take 80 years for the statue to start moving? >> essentially he wasn't moving before because he'd been properly secured. when we redisplayed the galleries here this year, we hadn't thought about securing him in the same way as other statues. and that oversight resulted in this very mysterious movement. >> in april, 2013, dr. price
5:07 pm
secures 3,000-year-old neb-sanu with tape. >> he's known as the spinning statue, he currently isn't spinning. >> he may no longer have the 360-degree view, but manchester's ancient security guard still watches over the other priceless relics, his neighbors in this life. coming up -- >> it was beginning to flag. the interview was not going well. >> an interview shrouded in conspiracy and intrigue. >> if you believe his story, you know, he smuggled highly classified footage. i mean, he'd be in a lot of trouble. >> when "caught on camera: eerie and alien" continues.

if it's true, i think a portion of the population would freak out. >> july 26th, 1996. los angeles, california. filmmaker jeff broadstreet is working at a video distribution company called rocket pictures when a man, identifying himself as victor, calls claiming to have smuggled highly classified footage out of america's most secretive military base. >> he said that he had reason to be at area 51. he wouldn't say whether he was an employee there or not, but wanted to get the information out. >> it's unclear why victor contacts rocket pictures specifically, but what is clear is that his footage is extraordinary. >> it is a typical gray alien, and it's supposedly being interviewed by an area 51 telepath. >> unable to prove whether the
5:12 pm
alien in victor's tape is real or not, broadstreet takes a gamble and produces the documentary, "area 51: the alien interview." >> i thought it looked kind of puppet-y, but there was something compelling about it. it was kind of creepy. that's why i was going to make the documentary one way or the other. >> the mysterious "victor" agrees to be interviewed for broadstreet's documentary only if he's filmed in silhouette and his voice is altered. >> my purpose is to expose the existence of the aliens, not compromise these individuals. i made the decision come forward. i'm taking precautions to protect my own identity. >> if you believe his story, you know, he smuggled highly classified footage. i mean, he'd be in a lot of trouble. big, big trouble. >> victor reveals that the ebe or extraterrestrial biological entity arrives at area 51 in 1989, the same year some believe
5:13 pm
a flying saucer is shot down over the kalahari desert in south africa. legend has it two aliens survive the crash. no word on what happens to ebe number one, but ebe two is allegedly flown to area 51 for questioning. >> he said that they were interviewing the alien a certain number of times a week for a certain number of hours. >> the alien, victor says, is interviewed telepathically. of course, the universal language of human meets extraterrestrial. >> approximately twice a month they sit it down for a session that generally lasts from three to five hours. >> could this alien be part of an elaborate government plan? some conspiracy theorists believe in the existence of project sigma. >> project sigma was a sort of an exchange program. >> the rumored project is believed to have been implemented by president eisenhower in the 1950s following the alleged crash of an alien spacecraft in roswell,
5:14 pm
new mexico. some say eisenhower sought ways to communicate with aliens. he wanted to make a deal. >> eisenhower made the agreement with the aliens that they would get dna from us, and then they would get to abduct a certain number of people. >> he showed up five days later saying he had been captured but not harmed by creatures from outer space. >> we would get technology. after that, we suddenly had fiber optics and night vision goggles and the computer chip. so we made this huge leap forward in the late '50s, early '60s. >> could this allegedly smuggled videotape be proof, as some believe, that project sigma is real and active in the 1980s? if so, we may never know because the video unfortunately or,
5:15 pm
perhaps, conveniently, is silent. >> i can't allow the voices of the project personnel to be heard by the general public. there's a very good chance their family or friends on the outside might recognize them. >> here is the alien interview in its entirety just as it appeared in broadstreet's documentary with victor's commentary as an audio guide. >> we're looking at the interview suite at s4. it's kept dark for the comfort of the aliens. the figure who is just barely visible in the left foreground is the telepath. behind the camera is a seating area for observers. in this case, i was -- the only other person present was a military aide. the alien is seated behind a glass part is which is containment area which is maintained at biosafety level two, the lowest designation.
5:16 pm
that's primarily for the protection of the aliens, not us. the theory is that if they were going to infect with us an alien bug, it would have happened 50 years ago. in fact, all the indications are the aliens eliminated microbial and viral life from their own ecosystem long ago. they aren't susceptible to our diseases directly, but it has been shown that microbes can reproduce and form colonies within their respiratory systems which tends to exacerbate the debilities they tend to suffer in our environment. in fact, you can see here the alien is beginning to flag. the interview is not going well. the telepath was trying to clarify some points from a previous interview but wasn't receiving coherent responses. as you see, the being is in real distress. at this point the telepath is
5:17 pm
sending out a message to the medical staff. he's trying to communicate with the alien, but he's getting no response. there's very little he can do. there's no direct connection between his space and the bio containment area. that's the aide stepping in on the right. the medical staff should be there by now. they're slow in responding. there they are. i have to say the medical personnel in s4 are less than first rate. they tend to be selected for their willingness to keep secrets rather than their medical competence. by the way, he's not shining that light into the eyes. it looks that way, but in fact he's checking for hemorrhaging around the eye sockets and the nasal cavity. i'm sorry.
5:18 pm
it's very hard for me to watch this. >> the u.s. government has never commented on broadstreet's documentary. yet it has denied having evidence that extraterrestrials have made contact with humans. >> i do know the interviews came to an end. whether the being died or was retired -- and i don't mean that in a spy sense of having it killed -- i mean retired from the interview process, i just don't know. >> we found out that, yeah, aliens are really real and they're here among us, there's a big portion of the population that would completely freak out. >> some wonder if this video and its extraordinary subject could, in fact, be real. we asked a specialist. >> i have no doubt that it is an animatronic puppet. >> this is a special effects artist. >> the telltale signs to me are that it goes through repetitively and redundantly a specific set of movements. and those parameters are most likely the cause of the fact
5:19 pm
that there's only so many pieces inside of the head, if you will. >> hedrick also finds the props in the interview room suspicious. >> if i were to set up a scene and we were going to shoot a puppet, i'd want something similar to this where we have limited coverage on the subject within the frame, and then we have a desk or something that enables us to get underneath it in order to puppeteer it. >> what about the lighting? >> ostensibly the alien is sensitive to light. >> it's kept dark for the comfort of the aliens. >> it's a low-light situation, but it's still lit. and as a matter of fact, the one light that we do have is directly on the alien's face and eyes. now, if it was sensitive to light, we could have shot this with infrared or something. as a concept, it's very cool. but i think to just about any working effects artist, it's pretty clear that this is a bit of film magic.
5:20 pm
>> broadstreet's documentary, "area 51: the alien interview," is released in 1997 to mixed reviews. over the years, however, it's become a cult classic. >> if you go on youtube right now, there are literally 10 or 12 pages of people who have posted parts of our show. so clearly, people are fascinated by this stuff. >> despite naysayers, some still believe the footage is real and that we are not alone. >> people want to have something bigger than themselves to believe in. sure, i'd like for it to be real. but until a flying saucer lands on the white house lawn and, you know, the whole press corps is there, nobody's going to believe it. >> use your own judgment, that's all any of us can do. coming up, an ancient myth slithers to life. >> you can almost see the face of this snake.

[ speaking native language ] >> the video shows some snake-shaped form swimming in the river. you can almost see the face of the snake or its eyes. it's amazing, i think. >> runar uploads his uncle's footage to the local news website, and it's an instant sensation. >> the editor of our website
5:26 pm
called me up and told me that the website was almost crashing because there were so many people from japan looking at the video. >> within days, the video has three million views. many believe he's captured the infamous lagarfljot worm on camera. >> there have been all kinds of fairy tales and legends about this animal, ascribing it with all kinds of fantastic supernatural powers. >> everyone here learns about this myth when they are a child. >> the legend of the worm dates back to 1345 to the time of the vikings. >> once there was this little girl who had a golden ring, and put the golden ring in the box. she wanted the gold to grow so she would become rich. so she found a little worm and put it on top of the golden ring. and the worm was supposed to protect it and maybe make it grow. >> but as in so many fables, there's a twist.
5:27 pm
>> and the worm grew instead. and so when she found out, she was very afraid, and she took her box and threw it in the river. and there the worm grew. it became a giant monster. >> storybooks tell of a deadly sea serpent wreaking havoc from its watery dwelling. >> caused a lot of trouble for people in this area. i think that the message of the story is that if you don't deal with your problems, they will grow and become everyone else's problems. >> many here claim to have seen the mythical monster. >> people have been seeing all sorts of weird things floating around in the river as long as people can remember and as early as people have been writing stories in iceland. >> but few have caught it on camera. >> i think that this video will probably make the lagarfljot worm as big as the loch ness monster or bigfoot and the most famous creatures on the planet.
5:28 pm
>> but not everyone here is so excited. there are murmurs of a bad omen. >> people here believe that if they see the worm, something big will happen. probably something bad. >> and then there are the nonbelievers. >> it looks to me like there's a crack in the ice, water's running over this crack, and it -- as it goes through it sort of winds and moves. >> it could have been some debris floating in the river. maybe a net. people can start to imagine all sorts of explanations. >> but for some there is no question that the lagarfljot worm is real and alive.

5:46 pm
>> finally, the lights disappear. >> whoa! where did it go? where did it go? go on. >> and then one solitary light blinks back on. >> there they are. >> this time, everyone's ready. >> what do you see? just a red light. >> i looked through the telescope at this, and from the naked eye it looked like one red l.e.d. light. through the telescope, it looked like it was oval in shape, and it had about eight, maybe -- 8 to 12 red l.e.d. lights around it. >> what made the tinley park sighting very promising is the volume of video footage. the other thing, this is a mass sighting. i'm talking 100 people or more seeing the same event from various perspectives. we had military personnel, we

had municipal employees and police officers as witnesses, doctors, lawyers, amateur astronomers, meteorologists, et cetera. >> some witnesses take the sighting more seriously than others. >> it's so cool. we could actually be invaded by aliens. in a year we could see them again, and our entire species could die out from it because of aliens -- aliens could take over the world. night, tinley park residents are once again looking up. >> the three lights were back again. and that's when i high tailed it home, grabbed the video recorder and started shooting again. okay, the ufos are back. i'm out of breath.
