In the United States the modern flying saucer era began in the desert of Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, but in Russia, the modern flying saucer era began in 1908, as villagers from a sparsely populated area of central Siberia, near the Tunguska River, witnessed a large glowing object streak across the sky and explode in midair with the force of an atomic blast equal to over 40 megatons, completely destroying miles of forest.
Bizarre things start happening in the little New Mexico town where UFOs were spotted in 1947. Cut to 1999, when a cute high-school student saves the life of a teenage waitress. Surrounded by cliques of clever, angst-filled classmates, the two form a bond that threatens the survival of a secret universe involving superhuman powers, a yen for hot sauce and an alien gene pool.
Roswell Conspiracies: Aliens, Myths and Legends was an animated program, that originally aired in 1999 as part of BKN, the syndicated's cartoon programing block. The programming segment premiered in 1992. The show was part of BKN's drive to reinvent itself. The show's premise was that aliens had been living among humans for ages, and were the origins of many of the creatures humans know from myth, folklore and legends, including vampires and werewolves.
