Det här är lite häftigt! Konstigt och tråkigt man inte hört om det innan. Finns det äldre personer här som var med på den tiden som kanske minns och kan berätta mer?
"Vrillon of the Ashtar Galactic Command illegal radio broadcast November 26, 1977 *audio*
Vrillon of the Ashtar Galactic Command was the name used by an unidentified voice who performed an illegal broadcast on television transmitters in the United Kingdom on Saturday, November 26, 1977 at 5:10 p.m. The transmission lasted for over five minutes. This weird electronic voice, accompanied by a strange pulsating sound and other distortions, overrode the normal audio broadcast signal to warn viewers of an impending disaster should humanity continue on its present course. (The hijack did not effect the video portion of the normal news broadcast).
The event actually caused panic in some parts of the local population for people who believed that an alien invasion was imminent. It is assumed that the broadcast was a hoax perpetrated by someone who sent a powerful signal to override the station's VHF transmitter. Near the end of this "rogue transmission," parts of cartoon dialog can be heard, including the Looney Tunes theme song, an explosion, and other strange noises. (See Wikipedia entry for Vrillon for more information)."
