The First Major Alien Abduction Case - Betty and Barney Hill
In 1966, the book The Interrupted Journey was released, detailing the unusual experiences of Betty and Barney Hill, a couple from New Hampshire. In 1975, acclaimed actors James Earl Jones and Estelle Parsons played the Hills in a TV adaptation of the couples’ experience entitled The UFO Incident.
You see, Betty and Barney Hill reportedly were taken aboard an alien spacecraft for two hours and were the subject of medical experiments. Sound familiar? Well, in 1961 it didn’t: Betty and Barney Hill’s case was the first alien abduction claim to be given any real attention in the media and by the public. Even today, more than five decades later, people who go public with their belief that they were abducted by creatures from another planet (or dimension) are subject to ridicule and often the targets of suggestions that they “seek mental help.”
The Hills did exactly that. Years before their book and movie came out, the couple sought out professional mental help because they could not explain what was happening to them, and what had or had not happened to them. What did the Hills say had happened?
Today, 46 years after the UFO abduction of Betty and Barney Hill, more and more people are convinced that UFOs are real and their existence is being covered up by the government. If you have doubts or questions about the Hill case or alien experiences in general, Captured! will give you the answers you're searching for.
