Full Forrest Ackerman interview from 1997 'Secret Lives' film released for first time - 2015-01-09
Wow, this is a fun leak, which was brought to our attention by Jon Atack.
In 1997, Channel 4 in the UK aired an hour long documentary titled Secret Lives — L. Ron Hubbard. We've posted it here at the Underground Bunker in the past, and it's long been considered one of the better documentaries about the organization and its founder. It contained interviews with key people, such as Hana Eltringham Whitfield, who captained one of Hubbard's ships as Scientology was run from sea in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It also featured a brief interview with Forrest Ackerman, the famous science fiction promoter who was once Hubbard's literary agent.
And now, the raw footage of Ackerman's entire interview - most of which did not make the finished documentary - has been released. It's a real treat!
