Last Show Recap

First Half: In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews, Frank Sheeran confessed to investigative author Charles Brandt that he handled more than 25 hits for the Mob, and for his friend Jimmy Hoffa. Joining George Knapp, Brandt shares an update to his original investigation with more evidence about Sheeran's involvement with Hoffa, new information on other famous murders, and the announcement of a film adaptation of his book from director Martin Scorsese.

Second Half: Pioneering promoter of sci-fi books and films, the late Forrest J. Ackerman, never believed in an afterlife of the soul; nonetheless, he promised a few respected colleagues that if it were possible he would try to send messages from the beyond. Authors and researchers Paul Davids and John Allison, will detail more than 100 incidents of Ackerman's unusual and uncanny messages and phenomena, as well as impressive scientific support of an afterlife. Mark Rollings, current owner of what was once the 18-room Ackermansion, will also briefly join the conversation.

Fatima: The UFO Interpretation

  Fatima: The UFO Interpretation

The mass visions that took place in Fatima, Portugal in 1917 have long been the subject of fascination. Tonight's guest Father Nicholas Gruner believes these events were miraculous communications from the Virgin Mary, as does the Catholic Church. However, a number of ufologists over the years, have looked at the incidents as possibly being an example of a UFO visitation.

The events at Fatima took place over number of months, and were predicted by a young peasant girl named Lucia, who said she received messages from a brilliantly luminous Lady whom she understood to be Mary. As more and more people heard about the events, some 70,000 people gathered on October 13, as Lucia instructed. As the crowd huddled on this rainy day, they saw an astonishing display, where the sun seemed to come down out of the sky, and spin around on itself, in a mad whirl that lasted 10 minutes.

Proponents of the UFO theory, say this bright globe could have been a huge disc-shaped craft, and that many aspects of the incidents, such as reports of unusual beings, ridicule of the witnesses, and dire messages about our planet, parallel current UFO cases. The well-known researcher Jacques Vallee, drew further connections, comparing the weakness and loss of memory some of the witnesses reported, to the kinds of paralysis and lost time that alien abductees experience. And yet, "there is some danger of creating a stereotyped idea of UFOs...and imposing this on the evidence," writes the insightful UFO author Richard L. Thompson.
