The eight-part series, which will star Laurence Fishburne, will re-enact the events of the famous UFO incident.
The veteran actor, who played the role of Morpheus in 'The Matrix' movie trilogy, will play the lead role of a retired American airman who was stationed at RAF Woodbridge during the Cold War.

Series director Joe Ahearne was particularly intrigued when he heard the Rendlesham UFO story.

"When Eleventh Hour Films drew my attention to this extraordinary piece of British and American history it pressed all my buttons, and I think it will do the same for a wide audience," he said.

Even to this day, the events that inspired the show continue to remain a topic of heated debate.

The strangeness began on December 26th, 1980 when US servicemen stationed at RAF Woodbridge witnessed an unknown object descending in to the woods. Upon investigating they encountered a glowing metallic object which seemed to move through the trees as they approached. When they returned the next day they found three triangular impressions in the ground at the same spot.

On December 28th the object appeared a second time, prompting deputy base commander Lt Col Charles Halt and a group of servicemen to venture out in to the woods to investigate.

What they saw that night was well documented thanks to Halt's micro-cassette voice recording - a bizarre light show that was witnessed by the men for several minutes before disappearing.

While there has been a great deal of controversy and skepticism surrounding the incident, no definitive explanation for what happened has ever been found.

Whether that will change once the new show airs however remains to be seen.

I agree. The cash cow gets bigger when plenty of woo of artistic license is used to embellish the story.

Couldn't agree more, my man. No proof of that at all. I will add however, that once string theory became widely accepted, I changed my view of alleged alien UFO's and took into consideration, it may indeed be humans from the future. Either way, it can't be proven in this case or any other. for now :-)

Jim Penniston touched the mysterious glyphs on the craft's surface. As soon as he did, he became engulfed in a bright light and lost all sight and sound. When he came to, he found himself standing near the craft. It took off and vanished. The following day he began to see images in his mind of thousands of ones and zeros. He didn't know what they were but wrote them down in his notebook. 30 years later, in 2010, he was contacted by the producers of a TV series called Ancient Aliens. It was because of this that he revealed the existence of his notebook filled with ones and zeros. It turns out ... [More]

The Penniston notebook and its binary code downloaded telepathically seems to be a work of fiction. http://www.ianridpath.com/ufo/pennistonnotebook.htm I am surprised that the notebook does not use zulu time.

You can't really believe anything Ancient Aliens has been involved with.

Funny when something shows up for a TV show that could have been revealed a decade earlier. Gotta keep milking that cash cow for all its worth.

I totally agree. This is a very intriguing turn of events. Multiple witnesses +Radar evidence+ physical evidence.....

So what?

So what? It seems rather clear to me that Penniston created the notebook after the event to make more money.
