converted attic of his home and he admits that the show
"I love to watch programmes that make you think and
Alien Nation certainly does that.
"I watched it and I was so interested that I got in
contact with some people and it has snowballed from there.
"I have a web site which carries a whole load of news
about the programme and pictures of memorabilia and that kind

"Unfortunately that is dwindling a bit now because Sky
TV no longer screen the show but without blowing my own
trumpet I think I can safely say that I am the number one
authority on Alien Nation."
The show itself centres around a race of aliens who have
crash landed on Earth and must integrate into society, and not
only does Chambers know all about it – he has actually
appeared on it!
"I have become friendly with the props manager and I
went and toured the set whilst on holiday one year, which
ended up in me appearing as an extra. It was like all my
Christmases and birthdays in one."
The Alien Nation Appreciation Society has attracted members
from all over the world including Brazilians, Americans and some
The museum is open by appointment to fellow enthusiasts.
