The video, according to the YouTube excerpt, was provided by "Rod Dickinson" - doing a Google Archives search turns up some interesting news stories, assuming it's the same Rod Dickinson
Rod Dickinson is a UK Artist specialising in recreations of historical incidents or events. He first gained noteriety in the 1990's for his pranks involving the creation of crop circles in the UK. He was born in 1965 in the UK and is currently living in Bristol in the UK.

I don't think it is the same Rod Dickinson. If it were the same guy, then surely the story would have come out by now linking the hoaxer to the guy whom actually captured this video in 1998. (snip) surely, they would have mentioned this rather popular video, assuming that it would had to have been his big masterful hoax!
Although Lundberg and Dickinson described themselves as circlemakers or "crop artists", their circlefaking activities were none the less illegal and involved considerable deception. Their compulsion to fake circles and UFOs was best illustrated in an exhibition which they put on with some help from Jim Schnabel at the Independent Art Space in London in February- March 1994. This included pictures of many of their crop circle formations and also faked UFOs - "four anomalous photographs of disk like objects" produced by Rod Dickinson. But their theme of 'the paranormal as art', and their unspoken ideal of creating icons for the true believer, ran even to the inclusion in the exhibition catalogue of two brief items on cattle mutilations. One, by John Lundberg and Bill Ellis, was entitled "Altered Steaks" and the other was an extract from Linda Howe's "An Alien Harvest", reproduced as a project for IAS by John Lundberg. (I do not suggest in any way that either has ever hoaxed cattle mutilations!) Also in the exhibition were 7ft by 7ft oil paintings of the alien head from the cover of Whitley Strieber's book "Communion".

Okay folks, I emailed Mr. Rod Dickinson a few hours ago (snip)
isaac koi did email me about year ago. i said something similar to him. your email has reminded me again that rather annoyingly the science museum still has the original tape.
UFOs over Dorchester, UK, 1998
Photographs and films of UFOs are mysteriously never clear enough to identify the craft as coming from another planet. We all love the suspense of not knowing for certain, but if this footage was clearer, would an Earth-based explanation seem obvious?
