Richard D Hall is a leading UK UFO researcher and broadcaster.
In 1990 he graduated from Newcastle University in Electrical Engineering, working in that profession until 2002 when he became an IT consultant. In 2008 he launched the website richplanet.net which has hosted a series of his documentaries which focus on fringe subjects including 9/11 conspiracy theories, media manipulation and of course UFOs.
His journalistic integrity, allied with his other talents, has enabled him to produce substantial work on, amongst other subjects, crop circles, UK UFO cases which had not previously been investigated, and animal and human mutilation cases. With respect to human mutilation, he has gone a long way towards uncovering "section five eight", the NATO unit dedicated to securing sites in which UFO activity has occurred, be it a crash retrieval or a mutilation site.
