Thanks for those. Will check them out later.
Years ago I used to listen to radio 4 in bed and fall asleep listening to the world service.
One night I woke up and heard the most bizarre thing I've ever heard. I'm sure I turned white and my hair stood on end.
I can't remember much about what was said except it was described as an artists translation of some medieval poetry
I've tried to find it on multiple occasions but with no success. Its probably something that a sound engineer could do or even just some sound effect that's easily done with a PC these days.
That was about thirty odd years ago and it scared me to death!

back on topic, in 1977 this broadcast hijack became the basis for many alien myths.
The Fortean Times article went on to criticise reports of the incident appearing in newspapers:
Inexplicably the News Of The World and D. Mail call the owner of the voice "Gillon, of the Ashdown Galactic Command" and that he said: "Unless the weapons of Earth are laid down, destruction from outer space invasion will quickly follow." I hope their regular news reportage is more accurate than that, for the indication is that they've simply invented a more shocking message.
