NICK POPE - LEADING UFO RESEARCHER
Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope worked at the UK Ministry of Defense for 21 years. His postings included being assigned to the Joint Operations Center during the Persian Gulf War, where he was a briefer in the Air Force Operations Room. He left the MoD in 2006 after his final posting, in which he served as an acting Deputy Director in the Directorate of Defense Security.
Between 1991 and 1994 Nick Pope was posted to a division called Secretariat (Air Staff) where his duties included researching and investigating the UFO phenomenon, mirroring the work done in America by the United States Air Force’s Project Blue Book. Although most sightings could be explained as misidentifications of known objects and phenomena, a small proportion appeared to defy any conventional explanation. These included cases where the witnesses were pilots, police officers and military personnel, cases where UFOs had been tracked on radar, and cases where there had been near-misses between UFOs and civilian aircraft. Nick Pope takes no position on the true nature of the UFO phenomenon, but can testify, based on his official research and investigation, that it raises important defense, national security and air safety issues.
While working on the MoD's UFO project Nick Pope also looked into alien abductions, crop circles, ghost sightings at military bases, and people who claimed to have psychic abilities and wanted to volunteer their services to the UK's intelligence agencies. When details of Nick Pope's work became public, after the introduction of the UK's Freedom of Information Act, the media started referring to him as the real Fox Mulder.
Because of his government background and his rational approach and views, Nick Pope is the film, TV industry and media's go-to guy on UFOs, the unexplained and conspiracy theories. He has done consultancy and promotional work on a wide range of Hollywood movies, TV shows and video games on these themes. He has worked for clients that include Microsoft, 20th Century Fox, 7-Eleven and Sony Pictures, and has been involved with movies such as Super 8, Battle: Los Angeles, Paul, The X-Files: I Want to Believe and the remakes of War of The Worlds and The Day the Earth Stood Still. He contributes regularly to various news programs, chat shows and documentaries, with appearances including Good Morning America, Today, Larry King Live, Nightline, Geraldo at Large, The Joy Behar Show, and Campbell Brown. He has been interviewed on TV news shows on ABC, NBC, CNN, Fox News and the BBC, and has appeared as contributor on numerous US and UK documentaries on networks including Science Channel, Smithsonian Channel, Discovery Channel, History Channel, and National Geographic.
Nick Pope is the author of five best-selling books, published by Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Dell, and Thistle Publishing. These are Open Skies Closed Minds, about UFOs, The Uninvited, about alien abductions, Encounter in Rendlesham Forest, about the UK's most famous UFO sighting, and Operation Thunder Child & Operation Lightning Strike, two sci-fi techno-thrillers about an alien invasion.
Recently, Nick Pope has been the public face of a program to declassify and release the entire archive of the British Government's UFO files. This ongoing process, which started in May 2008, has involved the release of around 55,000 documents, some of which were classified Secret UK Eyes Only. As Nick Pope worked on (and wrote) many of the documents concerned, he made a promotional video for the UK's National Archives, announcing the release, advised them on selecting cases of interest to the media, and has given literally hundreds of TV, radio, newspaper and magazine interviews to promote the story.
In his capacity as a freelance journalist Nick Pope has written numerous articles and features for newspapers (including most of the UK's national dailies), magazines and websites, on a range of subjects including the unexplained, conspiracy theories, fringe science, sci-fi, space, defense and intelligence - though there are strict limits on the last two subjects, in view of the UK's Official Secrets Act, which is binding for life. Nick Pope lectures all around the world, has addressed the Oxford Union and the Cambridge Union Society, as well as speaking at the Royal Albert Hall, the Science Museum, and at Global Competitiveness Forum 2011, where other speakers included President Bill Clinton and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.
