I lived in England at the time this all occurred. The telly show set the whole community buzzing. It was interesting, and the possibility was
"exciting", at least. of course, in those days, we had no internet available, and where I lived was relatively rural, so there was little to be
done in the way of investigation on my own. However, it set my mind alight with the possibilities and spurred me on to investigate things, and see
UFOs in the skies over Essex, as well as get me involved in ghost hunting.
Remind me someday, but not too soon, and I will tell you the story of the incident at RAF Wethersfield. It was virtually known and considerably less
documented, if at all, compared to Rendlesham, not nearly as validated. However, it occurred, and cost at least one gentleman his military career,
based on the belief that he was "drunk" on duty.
Make the same reminder to me, and, someday, I will tell interested parties about a couple of my own ghost hunting experiences. However, all that is
for another day.
The whole Alternative 3 phenomenon kept me buzzing on and off for a number of years. Finally with the advent of the internet, and ebay, I was able to
get a copy of both versions of the book, a copy, somehow, of the original show on VHS, and a VHS copy of a "seminar" of true believers. I remember,
even, paying $135.00 for one of the paperbacks.
It would be very cool if they reissued the show on a dvd. Would love to have a copy of that too. It appears that I am an inveterate hoarder and
collector, after all:
I have no reason now to doubt, whatever, that Mr. Ambrose is telling the truth, but I was sorely disappointed to find out that, in my heart of hearts,
and many years back, that it was all just sci-fi.
