Linda Moulton Howe, reporter and editor of Earthfiles, presented interviews related to a 1967 case of UFO ‘retaliation’ over the Bermuda triangle region. Two military witnesses gave accounts of a fast moving UFO that the HAWK surface to air missile system placed a radar lock on.
The unidentified object retaliated with an instantaneous polarity reversal of the radar equipment, rendering it useless.

Joining host, New Zealand broadcaster and author, Ray Waru (book link), discussed intriguing stories from New Zealand archives. He was given access to thousands of boxes that included records of secret tsunami-causing weapons, grisly exhibits from murder trials, and famous UFO sightings. Waru uncovered documents about ‘Project Seal,’ a joint US-New Zealand effort begun in 1944 to potentially create huge tsunami or tidal waves that could damage coastal cities or military sites. A US naval officer named Gibson came up with the idea when he noticed that unexpectedly large waves were produced when using explosions to clear coral reefs for military installations.
Some 4,000 experimental explosions were conducted off New Caledonia island, and while the tests showed promise using an array of explosions near the surface, its use as a tsunami weapon was shelved after the nuclear attacks on Japan, he recounted, suggested that the procedure had likely been developed for potential use against Japan during WWII. Waru delved into documents about UFO sightings in New Zealand that dated as far back as 1909, when a kind mystery “airship” described as a long black object was repeatedly seen. The pilot/adventurer Francis Chichester, who conducted the first solo flight between New Zealand and Australia in 1931, told of an encounter with a “dull grey-white airship” that almost collided with him during the flight.
Waru detailed the 1978 Kaikoura Lights sightings, in which pilots saw unexplained lights that seemed to move around their aircraft, and the objects were tracked by Wellington radar. Subsequently, a TV crew took the same route as the original flight, and saw and captured the mysterious lights on film, he reported. He also spoke about viewing a letter written by the great 18th century navigator Capt. James Cook, the treatment of the Maori in New Zealand, and a dolphin that guided ships in a stretch of water between two islands.
Ray Waru has been involved in the television and radio industries for more than 30 years. He joined Television New Zealand in 1977 and directed and produced such local favorites as ‘Fair Go’ and ‘Country Calendar’. In 1980 he established the first dedicated Maori television production unit in TVNZ which created a stream of primetime Maori and Pacifica series and documentaries. In 1989 he was appointed chief executive of the Aotearoa Maori Radio Trust and established a network of Maori radio stations throughout the country.
In recent years he has produced documentary projects on many subjects and worked with a diverse range of people including Alan Duff and Kiri Te Kanawa. In 2000, Waru co-produced the six-part history documentary series Our People, Our Century, which won Best Factual Series at the New Zealand Television Awards and in 2005 made the 13-part history of New Zealand, Frontier of Dreams, which won awards at the Houston International Film Festival and the US International Film and Video Festival. Waru has been involved with a range of organizations including the Peace Foundation, and has judged the Maori Record of the Year.
The tsunami bomb was an attempt during World War II to develop a tectonic weapon that could create destructive tsunamis. The project commenced after US Navy officer E.A. Gibson noticed small waves generated by explosions used to clear coral reefs. The idea was developed by the United States and New Zealand military in a programme code named Project Seal.
Tests were conducted by Professor Thomas Leech, of the University of Auckland, in Whangaparaoa off the coast of Auckland and off New Caledonia between 1944 and 1945. British and US defence chiefs were eager to see it developed, and it was considered potentially as important as the atomic bomb. It was expected to cause massive damage to coastal cities or coastal defences.
The weapon was only tested using small explosions and never on a full scale. 3,700 test explosions were conducted over a seven-month period. The tests revealed that a single explosion would not produce a tsunami, but concluded that a line of 2,000,000 kg (4,400,000 lb) of explosives about 8 km (5.0 mi) off the coast could create a destructive wave

Author and actress Shirley MacLaine shared opinions on such topics as 2012, reincarnation, and fear-based religion. “Religion was the jailer of man’s minds for many, many hundreds of years,” she mused, “and now you could say that science is.” MacLaine revealed that Stephen Hawking confided in her that the renowned scientist believes he is the reincarnation of Sir Isaac Newton. “He doesn’t just think it, he believes it. He knows it,” she declared. On the propensity for comedians to make light of her well-known esoteric beliefs, MacLaine quipped that “the only thing I’ve been insistent on, if people make jokes about me, is that the jokes be funny.” Over the course of MacLaine’s appearance, she also talked about her conversations with President Jimmy Carter and Dennis Kucinich about UFOs as well as her thoughts on a “new species” of humans emerging on the planet.
Shirley MacLaine has been nominated for six Academy Awards, won the Oscar for Best Actress is 1984 for “Terms of Endearment,” has appeared in more than fifty films, and has won three Emmy awards and ten Golden Globe Awards. Shirley is the author of ten international bestsellers and her latest work is Sage-ing While Age-ing. She currently resides in Malibu, California, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
MacLaine was married to businessman Steve Parker until their divorce in 1982. They had a daughter, Sachi. In April 2011, while promoting her new book, I’m Over All That, she revealed to Oprah Winfrey that she had an open relationship with her husband. According to her, she had had affairs with prime ministers and leading actors.
MacLaine has a strong interest in spirituality and metaphysics. Many of her best-selling books, such as Out on a Limb and Dancing in the Light, have it as their central theme. Her interests have led her to such forms of spiritual exploration as walking El Camino de Santiago, working with Chris Griscom, and practicing Transcendental Meditation.
Her well-known interest in New Age spirituality has made its way into several of her films. In Albert Brooks’s romantic comedy Defending Your Life (1991), the recently deceased lead characters, played by Brooks and Meryl Streep, are astonished to find MacLaine introducing their past lives in the “Past Lives Pavilion”. In Postcards from the Edge (1990), MacLaine, playing a character loosely based on Debbie Reynolds, sings a special version of “I’m Still Here”, with customized lyrics created especially for her by composer Stephen Sondheim. One of the lyrics was changed to “I’m feeling transcendental — am I here?” In the made-for-television movie These Old Broads (2001) — written by Reynolds’ daughter Carrie Fisher — starring MacLaine, Debbie Reynolds, Joan Collins, Elizabeth Taylor, and Carrie Fisher, MacLaine’s character is a devotee of New Age spirituality.
She has such a serious interest in UFOs that she has given numerous interviews on CNN, NBC, and Fox news channels on the subject through 2007–2008. In her book Sage-ing While Age-ing (2007), she mentioned her alien encounters and witnessing of Washington DC UFO incidents in the 1950s.
