Channel 4 is bringing its ‘4’ logo to life in a major new art commission.
A 48 foot-high steel ‘4’ is being constructed on the steps of the channel’s headquarters in Horseferry Road, London. The Big 4 will be unveiled by the Arts Minister Margaret Hodge at the official unveiling on 16th October at 11:15am.
The towering installation, designed by Freestate, in conjunction with award-winning engineers, Atelier One, will mirror the channel’s award-winning idents with steel bars forming the instantly recognisable ‘4’ logo only when viewed from a certain angle.
The work coincides with a major television series on public art and art in the built environment, the Big Art Project (www.channel4****/bigart), which comes to Channel 4 screens in 2008.
Four artists over the course of 12 months will customise the Big 4 starting with Nick Knight one of Britain's most innovative and influential photographers, Mark Titchner, shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2006 and celebrated Ghanaian sculptor El-Anatsui. The fourth artist will be the winner of a competition open to young arts graduates, run in conjunction with the Saatchi Gallery.

The "Disclosure Project was on the 9th May 2001
By 1989, 57 different varieties of alien beings had been catalogued

Dr Steven Greer then explains exactly what the Disclosure Project is about - getting the American government to drop its Star Wars programme and never to put weapons into space as well as releasing the technology aquired from the aliens for the benefit of all us humans bringing an end to global warming.
The first witness up is Mr John Callahan from the FAA Head of Accidents and Investigations. He tells of an incident in Japan on the 18th November 1986. When the first ever recorded data of a Radar sighting of a ufo was obtained. Mr Callahan even produced the FAA report on the incident, the voice tapes, the video taken of the meeting and also all the recorded data for the tracking of the ufo.
Secondly we have Lt. Col. Charles Brown who headed the office of special investigations for the Air Force known as the grudge project in 1949 (preceeds Blue Book). He testifies that many of the UFO sightings he has delt with did in fact have Ground Radar,Ground visual,Airborn Radar and Airborn Visual confirmation of UFO sightings.
The third witness is Michael Smith, who was an aircraft controller for the US Air Force between 1967-73 at Klamath Falls Oregon. The first incident he describes is early in 1970 when he went into work he found his colleagues watching a ufo on the radar! This ufo appeared at 80000 feet dropped below radar and appeared at 80000 feet 200 miles away repeating the manouver several times! When he contacted Norad he was told never to write anything down about ufo's and any sightings are on a need to know basis only. A while later Norad notified him that a ufo would be coming up the California coast, when he asked what he should do they said nothing - it's heads up need to know only.
<p>Next is Commander Graham Bethune US Navy (Ret.) He describes a major incident that happened 50 years ago on 10th Feb 1951.Flying from Keflevik in Iceland to Argentia Newfoundland at night and about 310 miles outside Argentia they reported lights on the water, like a city these lights disappeared and then a disc flew out of the area and interacted with the plane that Commander Bethune was piloting! He explains that several of the planes instruments were affected by the disc shaped craft which was tracked on radar in excess of 1800 miles an hour. Not only did the 31 passengers witness this event Commander Bethune produced the 18 page official Navy and Air Force report on the incident!</p>
Mr Don Philips who worked at the Lockheed Skunkworks and was a CIA contractor describes an incident near area51 where 6 or 7 ufo's put on a display over the base. Flying at speeds of 2400 to 3800 miles an hour. Stopping dead and then flying at acute angles coming together into a circle and then en-mass rotating that circle then disappearing! This event was documented on radar!
Captain Robert Salas describes an incident on march 16th 1967 at Malmstrom Air Force Base Montana. He was the Missile Launch Officer at that base. A security guard called him about seeing strange lights in the sky, later he received another call saying that a ufo was hovering over the front gate. When Robert Salas rang his supervisor to notify him of the situation the missiles under his command started to go down into a No-Launch situation. He lost 6 to 8 missiles that day! Echo Flight lost all ten of their weapons under similar circumstances! He later found out that Minot in North Dekota in August 1966 experienced similar ufo sightings over missile silo's.
Mr Hartland Bently between 1957 and 1959 he was a PFC in the US Army stationed North of Washington DC close to Aldeny Maryland in May 1958 at 6:00 am he heard a noise that sounded like a pulsating transformer! ( This is the same noise that my own close encounter made!) He states that the craft was headed for the ground and impacted causing several bits to fall off - then the craft took off again. The next night whilst on duty, the Gettysberg missile base phoned him and stated that there were 12 to 15 ufo's hovering at 50 - 100 feet above him. Hartland asked "what do they sound like" the caller took off his head set and said listen to them. The sound was the same obviously more of them though so Hartland immediately switched on his radar and got the blip just outside the ground clutter. He then marked it on his radar, the ufo's took off and when the scope came round again they were 2/3rds the way off the screen. To acheive this the craft would have to have a constant velocity of 17000 mph!
Next we have two statements from John Maynard - a retired sergeant 1st class who had access to very sensitive documents! When he first came to office he had to sign for well over 200 documents. He states that in order to sign and inventory these documents he had to know what they werew about. He checked every document to ensure it was complete so that when he handed office over to the next person everything would be in order. He goes on to state that there were many many references to UFO's including MPIC PICTURES also that ufo's HAD in fact been targeted! His department worked on Salt one and Salt two areas and were taking photos all the time for verification of nuclear disarmament and there were objects in those pictures that did not belong there!
