Episode 52: Vrillon of the Ashtar Command

Episode 52: Vrillon of the Ashtar Command

In 1977 on a normal Saturday afternoon the broadcast of the evening news on Southern TV was interrupted. The interloper was an alien being called Vrillon and he had a message and a warning for the people of Earth (or Berkshire at least.
And as TV viewers were left choking on their fish and chips, a woman and her gentleman friend took a drive that would take a devastating intergalactic turn.
Who was behind these events? Is it all linked to the Wessex triangle? Who won the T-shirt competition? Listen to this episode to find out.

The Wessex triangle is a mysterious area of Southern England marked by the cities of Wantage, Winchester and Warminster.

This episode we look at the (still unsolved) Southern Television incident and the bizarre alien encounter of Joyce Bowles.
