The new run looks at series of strange events that began with a UFO sighting by 14 schoolboys. That incident which triggered a wave of ‘close encounters’ and claims of the biggest mass sighting in British history.

Here’s what we know about Paranormal: The Village That Saw Aliens

The case made headlines around the World when along the south and west coast of Wales over several years the 1970s and 1980s, dozens of ordinary and unconnected people in seaside resorts and rural villages reported a spate of unexplained and terrifying sightings. Reports ranged from a UFO sighting by 14 schoolboys, to a local hotelier claiming she saw a spaceship. A wave of reports of close encounters in the area followed, resulting in claims of Britain’s biggest ever mass sighting.

Sian’s first mission is to track down the schoolboys whose “alien” encounter in the village of Broad Haven, Pembrokeshire triggered it all. With access to the original investigator’s case archive which had been locked away and to those at the heart of the case, Sian sets out to uncover what really happened. She starts out as a sceptic, but in a series of chilling and increasingly bizarre twists and turns, Sian is left questioning everything she thought she knew.

Sian Eleri says:

“It was a thrill to fly into a new celestial realm in the paranormal universe. The world of UFOs, extra-terrestrial activity and other theories around what could exist in our skies is vast, intriguing and ominous. It’s been eye-opening to explore such open-ended issues and this series continues to challenge my beliefs – I can’t wait for its launch so viewers can make up their own minds on the case”

The show comes from Twenty Twenty Productions. The series director is Rory Jackson, the producer is producer is Hannah Horan.
