Here’s an excellent 1996 documentary from the BBC Horizons program about ALH84001 and the controversy surrounding it. Part 1 kicks off with a great story about an episode from 1961 when another meteorite was thought to have evidence of life – only to have that evidence turn out to be pollen grains that blew in through the window.

The whole thing is about an hour long – if you’re only going to watch one of them, go for Part 1 – it’s a great introduction to the whole controversy, and also has video of Bill Clinton’s statement and the NASA press conference that I’ve been searching for.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

Considering that this was produced in 1996, just a few months after the story broke, I’d say this is a fantastic piece of reporting. Enjoy!
