TV show to cover Rendlesham UFO mystery

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.

They demand evidence, not story telling.  Sure people want a good story. I do. I just realize that some stories such as Rendalsham are nothing more than a story.

Perhaps you have no idea what is meant by proof. I am certainly not confusing evidence with proof. The only proof is in mathematics and logic, not in science. A woman makes a claim. That is not evidence. That is a story. The links I provided are full of people convicted by tales and often exonerated by evidence.

Very possible, although I think their is something to what they say. Staging the whole thing seems highly unlikely

perhaps I *do*. How many times has it happened that the "Gods" of science declare something to be proven true, and it wasn't (see Differential Operators  in differential equations).  And how many times have we seen something proven true, only for the gods to say, "NO" -  eg,, the earth is not the center of the universe, the earth is round, etc etc. Most thought Einstein was wrong, early on. The dual nature of light competing theories, and so on. Here is what PROOF really is... proof is nothing more than the consensus of the Gods coming to agreement on a theory. That's IT!  They collectively co... [More]

I don't believe they staged anything. I believe these stories come out of confusion. The participants don't understand what they are seeing or more generally experiencing. Our brains are wired to come up with patterns or explanations. Those are often based on matching what is happening to previous ideas and experiences. If someone has a wish to seeing aliens or UFOs then they can latch onto to that early on in their experience. Others are brought on board by suggestions. Pretty soon everyone is seeing everything in light of this model that they are creating. If someone tapes a sound and p lays... [More]

No scientist would ever "declare something to be proven true". That is BS. Science never proves.  All of your use of proven in terms of science is you being wrong. This just shows that you h ave no idea what proof means.

Agree with all that. But it does not work in your favor here. These people were not "prepped" in the beginning. There had to be a first experience. Maybe the follow up the 2nd night, but not the first. There again, maybe they told the truth on both nights. You can't prove it and I know I can't either. When several people's stories "meld", that gets a little more difficult to explain. Were all of them off their meds or something?

Forget it. I articulated my case to a tee. If all you ever do is say "NYET", then I'm out.

I hope you find this article useful in understanding that science never does proofs.

Of course they were prepped. We are all prepped. A first experience can be anything that leads a person to make an identification. I've been with people seeing UFOs that were satellites. No matter what I showed them they were sure it was alien craft.  The stories have become embellished over time. That happens. It is normal. People do alter their stories to fit what others around them state. That happens all of the time. That is why witnesses are kept apart. It prevents one person's recollections from being altered by another person's statements. That happens when people are trying to tell the... [More]
