- No please!

No, please!

No, no!

- The 15th of December, 1967.

The collapse of the silver


46 casualties, two missing

and not found since.

What caused the catastrophe

according to the witnesses

and reports can be seen on the

next slide.

First seen in November of 1966.

Point pleasant, West Virginia.

Near an old explosives factory.

Roger and Linda Scarbury,

Joan and Mary mallet

and their niece.

They said it kept following


even if they tried

shaking it off on road 62.

There were about 100 reports

filed in those two years,

but once the bridge collapsed

just nothing happened.

Whatever is in the photo

it just disappeared,

left the town, never returned.

Where did it go after though?

Another unsolved mystery.

What could it be?

A mythical creature?

A mutation?

Perhaps some kind of military


or maybe this is the angel

of death trying to warn us

before the catastrophe.

What if I told you that it

has allegedly resurfaced?

In Hungary there were 22

reports in the past two weeks.

I am actually going there next


and I will need someone

who can take added footage

so if you would like to join me

just sign up after the lecture.

Thank you for your attention


See you in four weeks.

Same time, same place, different


Have a nice weekend, thank you.

And how long have you been

learning at the university, Adam?

- Actually for two

years, yeah, for two years.

- And what's

at the end of the line?

- If all goes well I'll

be a forensic investigator.

- Wow.

Was it always your dream?

- I think so, yes.

What about you?

- Mine?

- Yeah.

- Actress.

- Okay, two boyfriends.




Anyone else?


No luck?

- No.

Can we go?

- Yeah.

- I just don't know what

kind of person they all like.

I just don't get it.

I been to eight auditions this

year now.

- I don't know.

Maybe you could get into school,

you know?

Film school.

To learn all these things.

Maybe... Intonation.

I don't know because

I'm not involved in it

but I guess you have to learn

that too.

- Yeah I know all this stuff.

Actually I took a term.

Unfortunately I just couldn't

finance it.

And my father didn't want to pay

for it.

You know, he wants me to be an


- An attorney?

- Useful and productive

member of the society,

not just someone who plays a


My sister, my elder

sister Kathy thinks that

it's just a joke, hobby.

And acting barely beats


You just play a role and

sell yourself for money.

This is my family.

- If you ask me I think

everyone plays a role.

Everyone sells themselves.

Nobody's honest.

It's a good thing this

car was waiting for us.

- Yeah, the owner took

a term at our university

and I gave her an extra room

and when she left she

told me to let her know

if she can repay it somehow.

- And you called

in a favor, I guess.

- Yeah.

- Why are we recording

every single moment?

- Well I hope to turn this

into a great documentary

when we get back.

Or not.

But since we have this

let's just use it, okay?

- Okay.

You think we'll find anything?

- I don't know.

I can't tell.

- Alright.

- Can I ask a

personal question, Adam?

- Depends.

- Where are you from?

I mean I know it's impolite

to ask something like that

but I'm so curious.

- You don't like my accent or


- No, no it's not like that.

Your English is perfect.

It's just you're not English


I think you're as British as



- Yes.

- Are you Danish?

- Not exactly.

- I'm sorry, I didn't

want to hurt your feelings.
