After becoming friends @ X-Conference I in Washington, D.C, 2004, Peter Robbins and I sat down for a marathon conversation on September 5th, 2005 for an in-depth discussion on the book he co-authored, "Left at East Gate", and its topic : the UFO incident at Rendlesham/Bentwaters, particularly, the story of Larry Warren and his role both in the incident and following it, trying to bring it to the attention of the mass public.

In this week's installment, we discuss Peter's background prior to getting involved in the Rendelsham case, an comprehensive clinic on the 3 days in December known now as the "Rendelsham Forest Incident" as Peter takes us through the entire story with remarkable detail. We also discuss Larry Warren's reaction to being a witness as the Bentwaters story broke, his conduit to Ufology, Larry Fawcett, the early TV segments devoted to Bentwaters and how it was a historic story for CNN, Peter's role in meeting Larry Warren and the subsequent decision to co-write "Left At East Gate" and much, much more.

Along the way, Peter previews the new updated edition of "Left at East Gate", coming soon, and also a new Rendlesham documentary that will be on the History Channel in December.
