Autumn 1989. Thousands of people sighted UFO’s over Belgium. Interceptors scrambled, but were unsuccessful. Some of the objects were picked up on radar, but the phenomenon remains a mystery. The Belgian airforce believe the sightings were genuine. At a press conference general De Brouwer the matter-of-factly without attempting to play them down, as the US air force usually does. He showed the video of an F-16’s radar screen and the flight path over Belgium of one of the objects. UFO’s, Lies and The Cold War is a documentary that attempts to uncover what actually happened at these sightings, and tries to understand whether the media and government played any important role during these events.
