The original 1980s science fiction television series started out with a 200 minute mini series and a sequel about aliens known as Visitors, who came to Earth with an agenda. They offered to share their advanced technology in exchange for minerals and chemicals needed for their world. A photojournalist boards one of their ships and discovers that the Visitors are really reptiles disguised as humanoids who eat rodents and birds. He takes pictures of them secretly and plans to expose them to the world.
