National Archives UFO Files
In 2007 MoD made a policy decision to declassify and release its entire archive of UFO files. Nick Pope was informed that this news could be made public and duly broke the story in the media. Because of this and because he worked on MoD’s UFO project, he’s been the media's 'go to guy' for this story throughout the ongoing program to release the files. He’s worked with the National Archives previewing the files, selecting cases of potential interest to the media, recording a videocast for the National Archive website and promoting the story with his extensive media contacts. In his capacity as a journalist and broadcaster he's written features on the story for most of the UK's national newspapers and been interviewed on Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Sky News, GMTV, This Morning, Radio 4’s Today programme and literally hundreds of other TV and radio shows.
