Not sure where to post this, but it's a nostalgic fictional re-enactment 1970's television series that looks at what some assume as "fictional representation of Project Blue Book"...

The two season 1978-79 show was produced and intro narrated by "Jack Webb" (of TV "FBI" fame)
(posted vid below for the ~30 second intro. Watch entire campy episode at your own risk)

Synopsis​

The show features two U.S. Air Force investigators with the Foreign Technology Division at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, charged with investigating UFO sightings. The first season starred William Jordan as Maj. Jake Gatlin alongside Caskey Swaim as Staff Sgt. Harry Fitz. Swaim, who had never had any significant acting experience before landing the role, added diversity as a Southerner with a pronounced accent. In season two, Jordan was replaced by Edward Winter as Capt. Ben Ryan. Aldine King ("Libby") was another regular. Dr. Joyce Brothers appeared in two episodes.

If you are a real "UFO drama" fan type, you'll remember other 1990's produced fictional shows like "X-Files" and even "Twin Peaks".
(I have the complete Twin Peaks box DVD set, lol)

Yes I actually remember this from when it came out as a child (in nz I think it was called 'project bluebook')
A funny think is on another internet forum about 10-15 years ago some dutch guy was talking about this show from his childhood and his chief memory was one episode with aliens with horse heads, which coincidentally was also the same episode that stuck with me as a child.

heres a list of the epsiodes on youtube

Does anyone have any idea what episode this was?

EDIT: Found it, I remembered the scene took place in a city in a skyscraper so one episode jumped out from the descriptions, ( amazed I could remember this, must of had an impact, as I doubt I can remember more than 100 events from before I was 10, considering now thats >40 years ago )
the scene with the timestamp. I can see why this stuck in my head as a kid

Part of the reason I posted this old "UFO" series..... was the fact that these type "entertainment" shows have been around for a very long time.
"Other"-ideas and of other worldly life.... have been developing since pre-history.
Gods were living in the sun and moon.... and messengers were seen in the skies as meteors, meteorites, asteriods and other visuals.
