On a dark winter's night in January 1983, the sleepy Welsh village of Llanilar near Aberystwyth was buzzed by a strange flying craft, which hit trees, scattered shiny metal debris over four fields and flew off apparently unaffected.
One farmer witnessed the debris and clean up operation; one national newspaper carried the story; one civilian investigation team made it to the site; one collection of strange metallic debris remains. Witness for the first time ever in graphic detail genuine pieces of a crashed UFO.
Mark Olly is an author, musician, historian, archeologist and lecturer. Best known for writing and presenting the ITV Granada/Sky History Channel's popular television series "Lost Treasures." Here he presents this first investigation in a series of internationally important hidden mysteries.

The documentary is remarkably dull. It could have been condensed to a 10-minute running time. For the most part we are shown "travelogue" scenes of Wales. Fields, the sea, funfair at Rhyl, the village shop, more fields, crashing waves, the village post office, and on and on. The story is repeated to pad out and fit with the extensive travelogue footage. Towards the end we are shown samples of the debris that the owner keeps in an aluminium security case complete with handcuffs! A mildly interesting event spoiled by the alleged MIB encounter but a tedious documentary.

is this the case in which a farmer took police men in his land rover to the site because it was hard to reach only for the police to be told over their radio to turn back?
