Important Vintage Documentary - The Warminster Thing - Flying Saucers 1965 -1990 - UFO UFOS OVNI

The Warminster 'Thing'A slightly grainy, vintage VHS video from 1990, but interesting and worth studying, (also quite rare to be found on the net in it's entirety like Gordon if you're watching), if for nothing else, as a charming social document of those times; ah, the nostalgia of it good ol' days, (or were they? is a documentary reflecting on the sensation that was the Warminster 'Thing'.To begin with, everything rested on a fuzzy witness photograph which purported to show a strange flying craft in the 'Thing' as it was dubbed; this was a story which quickly fired the public's imagination, and hit national headlines in it's defence, even though the original witness of the 'Thing' photo, later claimed it had all been a hoax, and the object had been crafted out of bottle tops, at least this likely prank had caused locals and visitors here to start looking up at the skies more frequently,...(instead of down at their feet as per usual; or maybe not so much today, with people, it's a preoccupation with their mobiles!);...and the result of all of this sky watching? more UFO sightings of course; yes, some misidentifications, yes, some wishful thinking, but also some very intriguing reports, causing this Wiltshire town to became the unlikely epicenter of a UFO phenomenon right up to background:'The first sign of The Thing was during the Christmas of 1964, when residents heard a loud, unidentifiable whine. The strange sightings were reported in the Warminster Journal. Local journalist Arthur Shuttlewood was instrumental in making the phenomenon national news and in one year more than 1000 sightings of unidentified flying objects were continued to be seen on a regular basis, and in many ways formed a key chapter of the 1960s . Although there have been few sightings in recent years, Warminster is still seen by many as synonymous with the army based on nearby Salisbury Plain, Warminster is well known as a military gave rise to the theory that visitors from outer space could very well have been mistaken military believers shrugged off this theory convinced that the military were one of the reasons Warminster had been chosen for the reason for the coming of The Thing, certainly put Warminster on the map'.based on notes from finally I might add, I find it strange that although Warminster UFO reports still come through from time-to-time, (with some good sightings amongst them), they rarely get reported in the press anymore; I wonder why?All cited images text and music in (or on) this video are used under the Fair Use Interpretation of Copyright Laws.
