“I believe these advanced intelligences have been
visiting this planet since the dawn of time, and I believe
they’re here to assist evolution to another level.”
- Mary Rodwell

Presents an extraterrestrial experience like no
other in My Mum Talks to Aliens on
Tuesday 30 November
at 8.30pm.

This gripping documentary follows a mother
and son on a journey of discovery, as they travel the country in pursuit of solid evidence of an alien presence here on Earth.

In My Mum Talks to Aliens there is one issue that is driving a wedge between mother and son - Mary and Chris Rodwell - the existence of extraterrestrial life. Chris is a self-confessed alien sceptic, whilst his mum Mary is a leading global authority on the subject. But her beliefs have come at a cost, her husband left and it is now impacting on her relationship with Chris.

Mary attempts to convince and educate her son, and thus the world about aliens. She introduces her son to her clients who have had first-hand alien abduction experiences, including one who claims to have had sexual intercourse with an extraterrestrial being. She reveals shockingly clear, never-seen-before footage of UFOs, and visits acclaimed Astrophysicist, Ragbir Bhatal from the University of Western Sydney. Bhatal is one of only three people in the world whose job it is to scan the skies for alien communications.

Mary is affectionately known as Australia’s “Alien Lady” and is one of the World’s most sought after and respected experts on all things to do with the UFO phenomena. A former midwife and nurse, grief counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist, she founded ACERN (Australian Close Encounter Resource Network) in 1997. The organisation has now grown to be the largest of its kind specialising in helping alien abduction victims’ deal with their traumas with the support of qualified medical doctors, psychologists and therapists.

To date, Mary’s ACERN has supported some 1,600 cases of ET encounters worldwide from countries including the USA, Japan and Russia. Mary says, “For those with encounter experiences, my work offers them validation and an understanding in their own personal journey.”

A compelling raconteur with controversial subject matter, Mary has previously been invited to speak at Oxford University in England as well as at UFO symposiums in Hong Kong, USA, UK, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand. In 2006, she joined the Former Canadian Defence Minister, Paul Hellyer at the World Peace Conference in Hawaii to call for greater understanding of the UFO phenomena and compile an historic mission statement on Exopolitics, the political
implications of an extraterrestrial presence.

Mary maybe one of the world’s leading alien abduction councillors, and she maybe in demand all over the world for her expert extraterrestrial advice, but can she convince her own son about her out-of-this-world beliefs, and save her most precious relationship of all? To find out tune into My Mum Talks To Aliens only on SBS on Tuesday 30 November at 8.30pm.
