Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 269 The Burton Dassett UFO events of 1923 with Richard Rokeby

Spread the love
At the beginning of the 1920’s, the sleepy Warwickshire village of Burton Dassett became the epicentre of a series of strange encounters.

Locals began to see strange lights in the sky that seemed to act intelligently or even mischievously as some of the witnesses thought.

Former police officer and now author, Richard Rokeby takes us on a trip back 100 years in to the past to try and uncover just what were “The Lights Upon The Hills”.
