Ep 115: David Davies – Witness to Broad Haven

 
 
 

Scott: "With all those decades of research is there anything that you felt like aligned with what you saw more than any other particular hypothesis?"

Dave: "No, absolutely nothing."

From our interview with eye-witness to the Broad Haven UFO Incident, Dave Davies

 
 
 

Location:

The Broad Haven Primary School, in Broad Haven, Pembrokeshire, Wales, where eye-witness David Davies and a group of fellow classmates spotted a UFO landing nearby on the playground in 1977.

 

Background: 

Anyone who has experienced what is considered a paranormal event will tell you that it's not easy to tell others about what you had witnessed, especially if that experience was dramatic and significant.  Testimony about such things is often met with ridicule, scorn and sometimes violence by those who feel threatened by such challenges to their reality.  Therefore it takes no small amount of courage and resolution to tell your truth and stick to it.  Such are the qualities that we believe make up the mettle of tonight's guest, David "Dave" Davies.  Davies has had to endure bullying and beatings since he first described what he witnessed for himself and what his classmates had seen landing on the playground of the Broad Haven Primary School in Pembrokeshire, Wales in 1977.  For the 40 years since that close encounter, Davies has stood by his story with conviction and without embellishment or wavering, still ever willing to talk about his experience.  In fact, the sighting had made such an impact on him that he's spent the intervening years in a quest to find an explanation for what he'd seen.  Join us tonight as we hear from an eye-witness to one of the most well-observed UFO cases in history, The Broad Haven School UFO incident.

Suggested Listening:

 

Countless attempts have been made throughout history to solve unexplained mysteries. Believers of the weird and wonderful have always reached for their go-to weapon – belief. Skeptics have tried time and again to use science to disprove mystery. Running to hide and cry behind things like evidence and knowledge.

However, paranormal legends have repeatedly punched science squarely in the fact gland before giggling and running off to continue to remain unexplained.

'The Unexplainers' is a new paranormal investigation team. Two agents of intrigue who form the perfect combination of skeptical former P.E. teacher Mike Bubbins and once chart-topping comedy rap artist, and self-proclaimed anti-skeptic John Rutledge.

Together, they charge themselves with one mission - to thoroughly unexplain the unexplainable. Their quest is simple, chance of success unlikely, their dedication to the cause questionable.  But one thing, however, is clear - if there is anything out there that is unexplained, they will definitely find, or not find, any or some of answers. Possibly.

Ep 114: Strange Tales from Wales & UFO School Daze

 
 
 

“The thoughts came from the man.  From the man’s eyes.”

– Elsa, a student at The Ariel School in Zimbabwe describing a close encounter with an alien that 62 people witnessed in 1994.

 
 
 

Location:

Ripperston,  St Bride's BayWales site of Ripperstone Farm where the Coombs family experienced their own version of Skinwalker Ranch style encounters.

 

Background: 

So many popular culture misconceptions abound with stories of UFO sightings; that it's always some farmer, alone in his fields when an unidentified flying object appears.  The "hayseed farmer" is an easy target to dismiss with ridicule and hubris.  Sure, sometimes it is a farm, as it was in 1977 at the Coombs family farm in southern Wales, but it is far from the norm.  And it wasn't a singular farmer who witnessed a UFO then, prominent townsfolk and a group of schoolchildren also saw bizarre craft and phenomena during a series of events that would become known as the Broad Haven incident.  The Coombs family would also go on to experience High Strangeness that would rival the happenings at Skinwalker Ranch.  If you still think that remote farms are still the most likely places for such incredible tales to emerge, you might be surprised that schoolyards also seem to be just as common for alien interactions, with notable cases happening all over the world, in countries like Australia, Zimbabwe, and Russia.  Decades later, questions about these cases emerge: Were the goings on in Broadhaven, this "Flap," connected to the incident at Berwyn Mountain, three years prior?  Does a "Welsh Triangle" exist?  Why do otherworldly visitors want to communicate with our children?  Is it because they are more likely to learn lessons we adults are too proud or stubborn to heed?  Join us tonight as we examine these cases with a friend and fellow podcaster, Rob Kristofferson, host of Our Strange Skies, as we go in search of answers to these fascinating questions.

Ep 113: Roswelsh – The Berwyn Mountain UFO Incident

 
 
 

“One soldier, (under the pseudonym) James Prescott, was ordered to Llandderfel with four others and loaded two oblong boxes into their armoured truck. They then ferried the bodies back to the Chemical and Biological Defence Establishment at Porton Down, under strict orders not to stop for anything" – Nick Redfern, paraphrased from his book, "Cosmic Crashes"

 
 
 
 

Background: 

On January 23, 1974, villagers in the community of Llandrillo in the Edeirnion area of Denbighshire, northern Wales, experienced a tremendous jolt and noise a little after 8:30 p.m., akin to a magnitude 3.5 earthquake.  Highly strange, colored lights were seen over the surrounding hills at the same time.  Another unusual occurrence was that the British Military was immediately on the scene as if they were tracking the "geological event" in real time.  The official Ministry of Defence conclusion was that the event was caused by a simultaneous earthquake and meteor impact, with the meteor being the cause of the freakish light show.  However, a meteor impact that would cause a shock of that magnitude would have left a visible crater, which was not found.  And of course, there were reports by witnesses on the scene of the military carting off bodies and wreckage.  Does this sound familiar to you?  It did enough to some tabloid papers at the time who dubbed it, "The Roswelsh Incident."  What's your conclusion?
