British pubcaster Channel is set to air this week the one-off documentary Confessions of an Alien Abductee (one x 60 minutes, pictured), produced by Off the Fence Productions.

The film follows the people behind Britain’s Anomalous Mind Management Abductee Contactee Helpline (AMMACH), a service for those who believe they have experienced alien abduction. The helpline allows “experiencers” – including a town councillor who believes he has a family of alien children and an alien wife, a housewife who says she has been abducted thousands of times and an accountant who believes her DNA has been genetically altered — to keep in touch with one another.

The doc, which is Off the Fence’s first commission for C4, will air on June 13 at 9 p.m. It was executive produced by Laurence Turnbull and Allison Bean and commissioned by Lucy Leveugle, the network’s commissioning editor for factual entertainment.

“From seeing them at the support group’s AGM to being scanned for alien implants, this film will offer a fascinating insight into the lives of those across the UK who truly believe they have been and continue to be targeted by aliens,” Leveugle said in a statement.
