BBC UFO Debate - August 03, 2011

Breakfast Show with Nicky Campbell


Dear colleagues.

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:

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:

John Challis was involved in BBC Inside Out about UFOs last
November:

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:
