Abduction, Alienation and Reason

on BBC Radio 4 FM

The late John E Mack was an eminent professor of psychiatry at Harvard University. He was also passionately interested in the phenomenon of alien abduction, but the university found his research irrational and tried to stop it. Sue Nelson tells the story of Mack's battle with his academic colleagues to keep an open mind and of his struggle to understand those who claim to have been abducted. Producer Angela Hind
