If other posters are talking about the Channel 4 programme "A Very British UFO Hoax " then this has nothing to do with it.
Firstly the Somerset photo, if the report is correct, is dated 7/4/98 and the Channel 4 programme was aired 7/10/03.
Secondly they "flew" their ufo at night or at least dusk.
Thirdly the hoax ufo was in Avebury Wiltshire, another neighbouring county.
And lastly it would seem that after all the effort put in by the motion-picture SFX crew it was not particulalrly convincing, apparently there was a
contingent from SUFOG there on the night, and they dismissed it as a hoax.
Here is an image of this helium filled ballon which probably does it more justice then it should as a still image does not convey the sound of the
electric motors or its unsteady progress in a light breeze.
