Download link for Audio - I strongly suggest downloading, listening and archiving it on your hard drive. Its a good representative piece for later historical reconstruction of UFO media debate in this period of time: http://tinyurl.com/3ffr6jw Only UFO references are extracted in the link above from the 60- minute BBC show. I've worked on this since this morning. There were also 2 follow-up shows - I will post those later as it will take me some time to process them. Dave Haith and Isaac Koi also already reported on the story on different Lists and forums. BACKGROUND: This morning (August 03, 2011) there was a lively and quite an intensive debate on BBC Radio 5 Live on the Breakfast show with host Nicky Campbell. The reason for the debate in the first place was a sighting by BBC sport reporter Mike Sewell of a disc shaped object which was allegedly circling above a field in Hertfordshire. Guests on the show were Mike Sewell, Timothy Good, Tony Robinson, John Chillis, Nick Pope and others. It was interesting to hear Tony Robinson and John Challis views about the subject. For those who are not familiar with British sitcoms, Tony Robinson played character Baldrick in classic sitcom "The Black Adder". John Challis played Boycie in classic sitcoms "Only Fools and Horses" and "Green, Green Grass". They included them in debate because Robinson worked on documentary series Unexplained: http://tinyurl.com/3m52xh4 John Challis was involved in BBC Inside Out about UFOs last November: http://tinyurl.com/2a5lpug My favorite part of the BBC debate was on the 14:50 minute of audio when Timothy Good clashed with uniformed skeptic about JAL-1628 incident. In fact similar thing happened here in Croatia recently on one radio show that was broadcast on April 12, 2011. That show deals with popularization of science. At the time one caller also posed question about JAL-1628 incident. As I said, almost the same thing happened on that Croatian show too. Skeptical guest probably also never heard about that incident so he replied like this (translated from Croatian audio that I have): "From all of those - so called best sightings - whenever the details were checked, those cases were exposed as hoax, some other interest was involved or it was only a second hand story. So we can say that there is not a shred of evidence about those sightings. They have earthly explanations and they can be also explained with military involvements." So as you can see in that Croatian show, skeptical guest in fact hasn't addressed case that he was asked in the first place. Now let's return to this latest BBC story. Those are also some other pieces about the story: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14387365 Articles: Daily Mail: 'Freaked out' BBC reporter tells millions of radio listeners of the moment he faced a UFO on his way to work http://tinyurl.com/3capucp The Sun: BBC man's shock at UFO sighting http://tinyurl.com/3vsuoyw Stay tuned for the follow-up shows in the next few days.
