On this day in 1977, a mysterious six-minute message was broadcast across southern Britain.
The chilling warning, from someone identifying themselves as “Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command,” has never been explained.
It was on Saturday 26 November 26, during a routine broadcast of Southern TV’s 5 o’clock news, that viewers saw newsreader Andrew Gardner’s image wobble strangely while a deep buzzing sound came from their TV sets.

Then came the bizarre message: “This is the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you.,” it said.
“For many years you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet Earth.
“We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your world so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disaster which threatens your world, and the beings on our worlds around you.”

Explaining that the Earth was moving into a new era which could usher in an age of peace and harmony for all mankind the voice when on to warn that it was time to ban all weapons of mass destruction: “All your weapons of evil must be removed. The time for conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the higher stages of its evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this. You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill.”
Vrillon, presumably referring to UFO sightings, adds “We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies,” and claims that “there are more beings on and around your Earth than your scientists admit.”

Signing off with a warning not to listen to false leaders, Vrillon says that he and his colleagues at Ashtar Galactic Command are “now leaving the planes of your existence” and that it’s time for us to evolve into a higher form.
The message was never repeated and never explained.
The rational response is that it was a hoax and that someone had hijacked the TV transmitter for the region.
A spokesman for Southern Television told reporters at the time "A hoaxer jammed our transmitter in the wilds of North Hampshire by taking another transmitter very close to it."

A spokesperson for The Independent Broadcasting Authority said that a hoax of this kind would take "a considerable amount of technical know-how"
But the alleged hoaxer never came forward to claim responsibility for the bizarre broadcast, and they have managed to keep their secret for 42 years.
Or, of course, it’s possible that Vrillon really is out there, watching over us and waiting for us to give up our nuclear weapons so they can welcome us into an interplanetary community.
