increasingly disturbed by fragmented memories of their encounter and recurring nightmares, Betty and Barney seek the help of a noted psychiatrist, Dr Benjamin Simon.
Simon interviewed Betty and Barney separately and together, and then he began six months off separate hypnosis sessions.
Simon uses a then revolutionary technique known as hypnotic regression, a process by which Betty and Barney are put under a trance and then are encouraged to recall memories that are not available to the conscious mind.
When I have a person in a hypnotic regression, they will relive this experience.
Men and women will go through what they went through back then.
The trauma, the fear.
In sessions lasting over six months, Dr Simon uncovers shocking facts about the first ever modern account of an alien abduction.
Audio recordings of hypnosis sessions never before heard on national television reveal the frightening moment when Betty and Barney are taken.
And I looked a little look, I can big head King Dr, but do they work all right?
I believe I can be Betty Hill told me.
She resisted, she described it to me, is almost like getting in a fistfight with these entities.
Whatever they were.
She became terrified when they tried to take her, and she fought for her life.
It was very frightening because they saw these beans approached the car and they took them out of the car and led them into the craft.
I told my eyes, They took me and carried me and my feet.
I am going inclined.
I'm afraid to open my eye according to their own words.
Once inside the craft, Betty and Barney are taken to separate sterile environments.
They're placed on tables where extraterrestrials began to examine them.
First, they wanted to remove her dress, but they didn't know howto operate a zipper.
They tried to pull it apart.
It tour the stitching and a tour the thick zipper fabric.
Did you feel you were going to be operating?
If I keep quiet, I won't be home.
They examined their hands, their feet, their joints.
And they seem to do a test off their nervous systems.
They seem to be counting his vertebrae as they would push on his spine with something for Betty.
She believed it was part of her neurological test, so they underwent the same type of examination separately you're telling me something?
What did he tell you to keep my eyes?
At the end of Betty's examination, Theo Examiner produced a very large and he plunged the needle into her neighbor, causing so much trauma, so much pain that Dr Simon had to end the session early.
Betty and Barney's sessions are incredibly disturbing, and yet their stories are remarkably similar.
Whatever happens to Betty and Barney Hill, they believe that it happened, and they are reporting it as accurately and truthfully as they know how.
Now Dr Benjamin Simon didn't go so far as to say, It's really and they've been on a spaceship.
But his point was, they believe that it's real and they've been on a spaceship.
One of the things that Betty was exposed to is this star chart right at the end of their abduction, and the leader apparently shows her this chart of some sort with stars.
And he says, this is our trade routes, and she was able, after hypnotic regression to remember this.
At least she believed that she could and drew it out.
It's an interesting little sidelight of this experience is that there is a woman some years later named Marjorie Fish, who made it her life's mission to reconstruct a three dimensional model of this, based on the local groupings of stars around us, she didn't a remarkable piece of investigation.
Honestly, I mean, it's not easy to do this, you know when you think about the three dimensional nature of the space around us.
But she was able to do it.
She had strings hanging and the balls for the stars.
Based on her own assessment, she concluded that these beings came from the star system Zeta, particularly no.
Zita, too, particularly, is around 37 light years from what this means is that if this is true, we know where to find them.
It's interesting now to ask the question.
Should Zita to articulate the a particular target safer astronomers looking for exoplanets?
And should it even be a location to which we might consider actively sending messages?
After six months of hypnosis therapy, Betty and Barney believe they've uncovered the truth about their close encounter.
In time, they accept what happened and move on with their lives.
Betty and Barney decided to tell the family close friends, and they spoke to scientists and UFO investigators who were interested.
They also spoke to the Air Force, and they made a project, Blue Book reports.
The Hill's encounter becomes the first widely publicized credible report of alien abduction in history.
