BBC bosses feared alien discovery, banned ivestigation

November 9, 2012 - Prof Cox, who hosts the show with comedian Dara O’Briain, said he had hoped to point the Jodrell Bank telescope at the planet Threapleton Holmes B after it was discovered live on air last year and listen for signs of life.

But he claimed he was prevented from doing so because the Corporation was concerned that a discovery of aliens could violate BBC regulations.

Speaking on the BBC Radio 6 Music breakfast show on Wednesday, Prof Cox said: “The BBC actually said ‘You can’t do that. We need to go through the regulations and health and safety and everything in case we discover a signal from an alien civilisation’.

“[I said], you mean we would discover the first hint that there is other intelligent life in the universe beyond Earth, live on air, and you’re worried about the health and safety of it?

“It was incredible. They did have guidelines. Compliance!”

    reminds me of when Hoyle & Wickramasinghe wanted to use one of the large telescopes to prove their theory of bacteria etc seeding earth all the time by studying close earth orbit..
    they found,for the first time,what it means to be ostracised from the scientific community..and have all cooperation withdrawn etc

    The BBC? Report on something factual? Don't make me laugh, they are just mouthpieces for the Zionist pervert child molesting homosexual savages that have subjugated and perverted the peoples government. They are now so obviously complicit in the child molesting rings of the Zionist perverts behind the kidnapping of our kids that they have become a laughing stock.
    LISTEN! read my lips......The BBC is complicit in the cover up of child molesters. Who give a monkey's toss about whether or not the BBC report life on another damned rock. They can't even report the news on this god forsaken planet.
    Zionist Savages are kidnapping and buggering our kids goddamn it!
