In a 1995 TV special, Fox aired footage of what London resident Ray Santilli claimed to be an alien autopsy. The special featured interviews with well-known experts, including an Oscar-winning make-up artist and a forensic pathologist, who speculated on-air whether the autopsy was authentic. It was the highest-rated TV special in Fox history. Years later, it was discovered that Ray Santilli staged the entire autopsy video. It was also discovered that the TV special's editors had cut portions of the expert interviews to make the autopsy seem more believable.
