On March 8th, 1957, former Marine Air Corps pilot, Major Donald Keyhoe, Director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), was interviewed on national television by then ABC reporter, Mike Wallace.
Throughout the 1950s, Major Keyhoe was conducting ongoing UFO investigations and public inquiry into the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). Keyhoe appeared on television regularly to discuss the subject of "Flying Saucers" and the need for complete government disclosure. I was watching with my parents as a 9-year old boy on the night that CBS TV "pulled the mike" on him when he appeared on the Armstrong Circle after he began to speak about Congressional hearings into UFOs.
In this interview, archived at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, Major Keyhoe talks to Mike Wallace about the United States Air Force cover-up of UFOs, relates reports of UFO sightings by professional airline and military pilots, discusses various theories explaining UFOs, exposes official government cover-ups employing scientists as debunkers, reveals the existence of the Robertson Panel Report (as well as, AFR 200-2) and expounds on the possibility of interplanetary war in the future.
THE MIKE WALLACE UFO INTERVIEW
With Major Donald E. Keyhoe, USMC (Ret.)
March 8th, 1957
WALLACE: Good evening, tonight we go after a fantastic story, the story that flying saucers from other worlds are visiting our planet, just as we are exploring outer space with our own rocket satellites. Our guest is Former Mariner Air Corps Major Donald Keyhoe, who has the support of scores of prominent businessmen, military men, and some scientists in his campaign to prove that flying saucers exist.
If you're curious to know why Major Keyhoe charges that the Unites States Air Force is deliberately deluding us when it calls saucer stories "the bunk," if you want to hear his own evidence that the saucers are real, and his reaction to the claim of two Americans who say they've spoken with men from Venus. We'll go after those stories in just a moment.

For UFO Cover-up & Parliament "Hi-Fi"
WALLACE: My name is Mike Wallace; the cigarette is "Parliament."
WALLACE: We'll meet Major Keyhoe in just a minute.
WALLACE: And now to our story.
Major Donald Keyhoe is the Director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena. As head of this private group, interested in flying saucers, he's repeatedly attacked the United States Air Force, and others, for claiming that flying saucers are apparently flights of fancy and not flights by Martians or men from the Moon.
Independent surveys show that millions of Americans do share his belief in these celestial saucers.
