This past week I have been preparing for a trip to Rio Rancho, NM to meet with Norio Hayakawa to discuss my book on Dulce and UFO research. I’ ve been researching UFOs since my first hearing of Area 51 back in the late 80s. By 1990 I was really involved in Ufology, interviewing experiencers, attending discussion groups, and watching as many videotapes as I could. That’ s right, video tapes – good old fashioned VHS tapes.

If you are as old as I am, or like me, you’ll know that the first real offerings of UFO videos came by way of “Block Buster Video” which was still relatively new at that time.

I can I remember renting every tape off the shelf that was a documentary on UFOs. This would be all the “In Search Of” tapes, and any other series narrated by your typical semi-retired Star Trek actor, etc.

Late one evening in 1996 I remember walking into Block Buster, and there it was … UFO video gold … “Area 51: Secrets of Dreamland – The Uncensored Truth Behind the Cover-up of the Century!” It was new, shrink-wrapped and boy oh boy, there were promises of “new information” … I just had to have it.

As it would turn out, this video was the perfect example for the precursor to what would become the Ufology industry’ s typical talk format used for discussions on secret bases, UFOs, aliens, etc. Yeah, sure there had already been home-made tapes of MUFON conferences and of a few ancillary UFO symposiums in circulation at that time. But this tape was not like those. And no one could rival the level of knowledge that the presenter of this Video could. His name was Norio Hayakawa; yeah, that Norio.
