Thirty Years Ago Today: Galactic Message of Peace

30th Anniversary of TV hijack by extraterrestrials - November 1977 - is the headline of a little item in Nexus Magazine I read this morning. I don't really believe in coincidence as an innocent chance happening. Checking the date, I find it was exactly 30 years ago today ... so I just have to share this one.

First published on Four Winds, the story was taken up by the ALCUIN AND FLUTTERBY blog of Alcuin Bramerton and from there it found its way into Nexus.

The audio signal of a southern England TV station was hijacked during the early evening news broadcast now 30 years ago by a voice identifying itself as "a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command". The news broadcast was drowned out for about 6 minutes. The message was prophetic and it advocated peace, but from all appearances no one seems to have listened. As happens so often, we tend to lose the rare pearls in the din of all the noise...

Extraterrestrial television hijack - England - November 1977

(Original here)

In southern England (UK), on the evening of the 26th November 1977, it is said that an advanced extraterrestrial, using technology not available on Earth at that time, hacked into a major UK television news bulletin on ITN and delivered a six-hundred word statement, live, in English, to the viewers. The statement lasted three minutes and forty seven seconds. The sound file is now accessible on YouTube here.

The full text of the ET's statement is detailed below. The total sound-hack lasted for about six minutes. A UK Government agency tried to block the signal, but failed. Thousands of people telephoned the TV station and the police. The TV authorities themselves issued three apologies on air. The full texts of those apologies are detailed below. The authorities called it a "rogue transmission" and a "hoax". The source of the "hoax" was never identified.

The ET called himself Vrillon and stated that he was a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command. The videoclip was put on YouTube on Monday 23rd July 2007. The total package on this clip lasts nine minutes and eleven seconds.

The full text of the ET Vrillon's November 1977 message was follows:

"This is the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. 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 disasters which threaten your world, and the beings on other worlds around you. This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The New Age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgments."

"Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again. 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."

"Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning New Age to you all. You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution."

"Hear now the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating in your world. They will suck your energy from you - the energy you call money - and will put it to evil ends giving you worthless dross in return."

"Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within that can tell you what is truth and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you and you will lead yourselves on to the path of evolution. This is our message to our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years, as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know now that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your Earth than your scientists admit."

"We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light and will do all we can to help you. Have no fears, seek only to know yourselves, and live in harmony with the ways of your planet Earth. We of the Ashtar Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the planes of your existence. May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the cosmos."

The full texts of the TV authorities' three apologies for the ET's "rogue transmission" were as follows. The first two were parts of ITN television news bulletins later in the same evening, and the third was broadcast on Independent Radio that evening.

(1) "We understand that viewers in some parts of the region are receiving a breakthrough in sound. We're sorry about this, and we're doing our best to rectify the fault."

(2) "Finally, back home, engineers are trying to trace the source of what they call a 'rogue transmission' which lasted about six minutes during ITN's early evening news bulletin. It affected viewers in the Berkshire and Hampshire area served by the Hannington transmitter. They heard a voice which cut across what I was reading. The voice said: 'Earthlings, lay down your arms. This is a message from outer space.' Well, thousands of viewers telephoned television, police and ITN here. A spokesman for the Independent Broadcasting Authority said: 'This is the first incident of its kind in Britain.' Winchester police said some people were frightened by the hoax message. They said they sent an officer to calm down one woman. Well, I hope nothing's interrupted this bulletin wherever you are this evening. From all of us here, goodnight."

(3) "The Independent Broadcasting Authority is at a loss to explain the mysterious message that broke into a Southern Television news broadcast. The slow, deep voice proclaimed, in part: 'All your weapons of evil must be destroyed. You only have a short time to learn to live in peace.' The station was immediately besieged by worried telephone callers demanding an explanation. But as the information officer for the Broadcasting Authority, John Ginnery, says, there could be several different causes of the message: 'Well, we don't know for sure that it was a pirate call. We know that there were some voices over saying certain things of which we haven't got an exact record. We've had a lot of accounts, obviously, a lot of people have been phoning us and other people about it. We simply don't know what it was. Broadcasts, of course, are monitored at an operations centre, but there there was simply a mumble and there was some picture distortion. We had a lot of reports in, but as I say, we simply don't know what it was.' Independent Radio News, it's three minutes past twelve."

nice to know,what Im not suposed to know!

Too bad we didn't listen.

He has a British accent!
Maybe he speaks in the accent of the host country he is speaking in?
hmmmmm kind of a let down don't you think?

I noticed the accent.

What accent would you think he should have spoken with - American? German? French?

Why a let-down? Makes a change to have a 'goodie' speaking with a Brit accent, eh?

You'd think that they would have the technology to interfere with transmissions worldwide, not just a small part of a small country in Europe. Also the half-baked allusions to the 'Age of Aquarius' seem to ground them firmly within our Solar System. It has all the hallmarks of a harmless undergraduate prank.

You might be right there Colin, a harmless prank.

Still - perhaps we should have listened, if not with our minds then with our hearts, to the message of peace. We got a lot closer to the brink of destruction in those last 30 years.

get rid of our weapons!why so they can take over,yeah right.peace is a great idea but big money and religon wont let us.i will stick with my gut and keep questioning until i can make a better judgement,count your ammo then multiply it by as many years you want to survive for.

I noticed the accent as well. The message was so right on that I forgave that part and prefer to believe the same as Diane. Of course there is no way to know for sure if this was real or not. I too would have expected a world wide message from a mother ship, rather than a local one. One thing in the favor of it being real is that a hoaxer would more likely say they were planning to invade us or something silly. This message was in essence true. We need to learn to get along and live as a peaceful planet. Thirty years ago I knew nothing of the ascension he was speaking of, but today I understand his message as if it were given yesterday.

So far as holding onto weapons. Do you really believe you could defeat technology thousands if not millions of years advanced over ours? They can simply turn off our grid, or use a bio-weapon that would selectively kill every human on earth and leave everything else pristine. They have no intention in taking us over, only to help. If taking us over was there intention, it would have been done long ago.
