'Codename Rendlesham' will assert that the famous UFO incident has become something of a legend.
Directed by Adrian Frearson and produced by Chill Factor Films, the new documentary is the latest to explore the ongoing mystery behind the UK's best known UFO case.

The strangeness began on December 26th, 1980 when US servicemen stationed at RAF Woodbridge witnessed an unknown object descending into 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 into the woods to investigate.

What they saw that night would go on to haunt them for the rest of their lives.

"Our security team observed a light that looked like a large eye, red in color, moving through the trees," said Halt. "After a few minutes this object began dripping something that looked like molten metal. A short while later it broke into several smaller, white-colored objects which flew away in all directions."
Over the years there has been a great deal of debate over what the object could have been, with theories ranging from an extraterrestrial spacecraft to a nearby lighthouse.

In the new documentary, Frearson will maintain that the mystery has become so ingrained in popular culture that, like King Arthur and the Loch Ness Monster, it has gained legendary status.

"Now it may have been a lighthouse," he said. "It may have been some natural phenomena. That is beside the point. We've reached an impasse. There are those who can only see it in black and white terms - aliens or people from the future came here."

"Or it's the skeptical version - that people are lying or they have been misled by ordinary things. The more it is elaborated on, the more it becomes a legend."

'Codename Rendlesham' is due to be screened at Woodbridge later this year.

Pretty recently, I heard a radio dramatization, like a radio theatre, of the incident, on Swedish public service radio (channel P1). Unfortunately, I was busy doing other things at that moment so I didn't listen very carefully but I was pretty surprised to hear it anyway.

I found it here, could be interesting if you understand Swedish but I guess that you can probably only access it from Sweden: . There are a lot of other UFO pods as well there in Swedish.
