I don't know if they still have the pages on-line, but it was on that site that I read that some strange things happen during the night, while they make the circles.
In the actual TV show, aired first on the Discovery Channel on October 10, 2002, a clip is included showing the group testing their "home-made" (MIT-lab made) equipment on a paved area near some of the farm's out-buildings.
Suddenly, there is an equipment malfunction. Not quite as exciting as a wardrobe malfunction, perhaps, but one of the two most interesting moments in the show.
The microwave generator sprang a leak and the TV camera, which was shooting from directly behind the generator, immediately cut out. Voila! On-camera evidence that microwaves dispersing in the immediate vicinity of electronic equipment cause malfunction.
There was one other curious -- even scary -- event.
Included in the show later on is a clip showing the TV crew in a small airplane, circling the now-completed crop circle in the field below. As has also been very occasionally reported by authentic crop circle investigators (in particular Busty Taylor, a UK pilot who has been locating and photographing English crop formations for many years) the plane engine suddenly cuts out altogether for a few seconds at no more than 1000 ft. in the air, putting the pilot and TV crew in real danger.

Good points you rase .
I had read some where that the first crop circles were discovered in the 17th century? Truly fascinating .
Edit to add ... there were some smart talented people back then so the possibility can't be ruled out simply because of the date , but very interesting none the less .
