Richard Sarradet Bio

Richard grew up in New Orleans and later joined the Army and became an artillery officer. Eventually Richard moved out to Los Angeles, California where he became a major cast member for the Soap Opera, General Hospital for the next three years. He then entered into film production and wrote and pitched UFO themed programs in the late 1980’s through the mid 90’s.

Rich has done “Friday Nights with Don and Rich” for 7+ years. Their friendship goes back to 1991, when Rich approached Don and Vicki about partnering to develop UFO-themed product for film and TV.

Mark Center Bio

Mark Center started looking into UFO’s after buying a laser disc of the Billy Meier beamships in the late 1980’s. As a movie maniac, Mark has had a high interest in sci-fi, horror, exploitation and documentaries, that material also helped to spark his interest in aliens, Bigfoot, strange archeology, etc.

In 1994 Mark made contact with a few UK based researchers regarding a claim that an alien autopsy video had appeared. With the help of the UFO Audio – Video Clearing House, Mark secured a copy of the video material that was sent to Fox for later broadcast as the “Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction. Jumping in with both feet, Mark’s research made it possible for him to be the first person in the USA to secure a copy of the Japanese broadcast; “Cameraman’s Interview”. At this point in time, Mark started self publishing a newsletter; UFO’s – Aliens and YOU. Each issue covered the Alien Autopsy in depth; what was happening on the CompuServe Encounters Forum, his face to face and phone interviews about that footage and other related UFO and alien information. The newsletter and related videos were all given away, free of any charge, Mark even paid for the postage. To that end, Mark gave away a half million pages of information and video tapes numbering in the hundreds to assist in finding the truth.

His research has been featured on KTVU Channel 2 Oakland, Fangoria magazine and various web sites and publications. He’s appeared on a number of radio shows; Joe Dale Show and The Dr. Bob Hieronimus Show among them.

When not researching UFO’s and aliens, Mark spends his time watching and researching movies, playing and researching music with a focus on guitar, studying and research human behavior, building and constructing interesting and odd things around the house and hosting events to support various causes and just for fun.

Mark Center; “Simple belief does not make a case or event real. Only unbiased, agenda free research will prove a case as real, fake or something in between… and it would help to have verified physical evidence. As of 2018, we have none.”
