Japanese Overseas TV pro- ducer and journalist Michi Saito contacted the Roswell Daily Record for permission to repro- duce the 1947 front page as part of a two-part special on UFOs, to be aired on the Aichi Television Network, a local channel which covers three prefectures, which Saito says would be similar to a channel covering three states in the U.S. The first episode aired June 21. The air date of the second "part, which will feature the Roswell story, has not yet be set, Saito said. Saito said the name of the show is "Debate Coliseum." "As far as I know, it was the first time that the news department dealt with the subject of UFOs," Saito said in an email interview. "Stanton Friedman (who will be a featured speaker at this year's UFO Festival) was the main ad- visor." Debates on a couple issues were longer than expected, so the show grew from a one-episode segment into a two-part show, Saito said. "They had no choice but to make a quick decision to save the whole Roswell segment for the future Part II, for which the date is not yet finalized," she said. "I feel it was a good decision, for Roswell is an issue which can- not be handled fully in one seg- ment." Saito says UFOs are a popu- lar subject in Japanese media, with there being more than 20 segments broadcast in various programs featuring UFOs in re- cent history. "It is one of the major seg- ments of supernatural-type vari- ety shows," she said, "and most are by major networks" Saito is a longtime television reporter, producer and has her own coordination company, MM Saito, which specializes in coor- dinating Japanese-language ver- sions of English television pro- ductions.

After that, she visited Roswell, interviewing together with Bill Moore, and she invited Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr., to participate as well. That first segment also covered the atomic bomb testing and the White Sands testing grounds. favorite memo- Saito says ries is meeting .Japanese Overseas TV pro- she has seen Mother Teresa. ducer, journalist Michi Saito UFOs three times "I can't leave this out -- a special gift of mine is having shaken hands with and being blessed by Mother Teresa while working on her documentary," Saito said. A souvenir photo of Mother Teresa with Saito and her film crew is a treasured possession. "I don't belong to any reli- gious sect, but, she, of course, is beyond religion," Saito said. "She passed away about one year later," Saito's first involvement with UFOs as a television overseas producer came about in 1989, when she was working on NTV Junichi Yaoi's UFO documen- tary" for the two-hour show. She traveled to the U.S. to investigate UFO sightings in the States and Europe. Saito was fa- miliar with the U.S., having graduated from Brigham Young University in 1972. The first topic was the Gulf Breeze UFO incident, which took her to Mississippi, where she in- terviewed MUFON founder Walt personally, and her film crew even captured some UFO footage while shooting the Gulf Breeze segment. However, UFOs continue to be spotted in Japan. "I hear there are some spots where UFOs are seen often," Saito said. "Like Mount Fuji, Meiji Shrine, Ise Shrine (most presti- gious). Mount Fuji is a sacred mountain registered World Heri- tage, while Meiji and Ise are one of 'the' shrines out of millions in Japan." Like Stonehenge, Saito said the shrines and Mount Fuji are believed to be on the "lay line" with high energy and also, sightings are often made near military bases. "I have this friend of mine who says he sees a UFO almost every day, but his still/movies/ cell cameras all get frozen when trying to capture them," Saito said. "He lives in the same district as I've just moved in, and he says, Nerima, Tokyo, is the spot to see UFOs," she adds. "We'll see!"
