'Unexplained: Caught On Camera' returns to Really with eight brand new episodes featuring some of the strangest and most unexplainable phenomenon caught on camera by members of the public.
All around the world, people are capturing the unexplainable on their mobile phones and CCTV. From the UK to the USA, the show claims that more unexplainable phenomena is being captured than ever before. The series features firsthand accounts from the people involved.
The show features a panel of experts who give their opinions on the clips featured in the show. The panel is made up of paranormal
investigator, Jayne Harris, the West Midlands based ghost hunter and history buff says, "I do believe there is more to reality that this material world we see around us. I just don't thin that science and reason has all of the answers, so I think there are absolutely some things in this world that are unexplainable."
Whereas Ciarán O'Keeffe, a fellow panelist says, "there is a viable explanation for everything." The parapsychologist says, "I get involved in scientific investigations of paranormal claims, but also I go out ghost busting at the weekend."
They are also joined by Barri Ghai who says, "I believe that ghosts exist because I've experienced them myself." Also on the panel is Deborah Davies, a medium who has grown up with ghosts. Deborah is convinced that "life goes on beyond death."
In the first episode of the show's second series we hear about UFO sightings deep in a forest, unexplained sightings by the sea, a swarm of birds like something from a horror movie, and a demonic box that should have never been opened.
For the first unexplained case in tonight's episode we meet UFO hunters Phil Bradshaw and Geoff Young, who had a strange encounter in Suffolk. The pair visited Rendlesham Forest, the location of one of the UK's most famous UFO cases. Suspecting a government coverup and responding to reports of flashing lights in the sky since that legendary night, the investigators returned to the forest.
In the clip shown in this episode we see their investigation in the forest at night where they note a strange absence of wildlife, but this is the calm before the storm. Soon they encounter strange lights and suspect that there may be a military presence with them.
The Rendlesham Forest Incident
Former classified documents released by the Ministry of Defence show that they took reports of an alleged extraterrestrial event which took place in Suffolk in 1980 very seriously.
The incident involved three military personnel who reported seeing unexplained flashing lights and a triangular shaped object near RAF Woodbridge in Rendlesham Forest. They claimed the object was silent and had markings like hieroglyphics on the side.
The next night Lieutenant Colonel Charles Halt went to investigate the disturbance, he took a dictaphone with him and recorded the incident. You can hear the complete audio from the night below.
According to Halt, three UFOs
were seen in the sky, the brightest of these hovered for two to three hours and seemed to beam down a stream of light from time to time. It seems ancient astronaut theorists have come to the conclusion that these were UFOs which had returned to the skies above the forest looking for their missing downed craft.
They believed that the beam of light was an alien search light and claim it focussed its beam on the Woodbridge base, thinking this might be the most likely location the craft had been taken to.
Next we see some video footage which seems to show a real life mermaid. The gruesome creature was photographed led on a beach in Great Yarmouth, where it was supposedly washed up by the harsh North Sea. The photos were posted in 2016 on Facebook by Paul Jones and appear to show the decomposing corps of human-like mermaid complete with a tail fin.
The photos have been viewed thousands of times and many who have shared the images seem convinced that this is in fact the genuine remains of mer-folk, but not everyone is convinced. Others have been speculating that this could be nothing more than the rotting body of a seal or another sea creature.
However, these photographs do very little to help prove the existence of mermaids. This particular mermaid's origin is probably rooted on land. The photographer who posted the photos is actually a pretty skilled model maker, who's known for making some creepy creations and including like-life models for Halloween.
Next we meet Clayton Golda, a YouTuber from Florida who runs the channel TimetoplayTV
. who happened to find a dybbuk box during a paranormal investigation of a disused car garage
with Heather Smith. They believe this cursed box has a negative entity trapped inside of it. Initially they dispose of the box by burying it, but curiosity eventually got the better of them and they opened it resulting in unwanted supernatural activity.
One of the shows panelists, Ciarán, ran a poll on Twitter during the episode asking his followers and viewers of the show if they thought the garage dybbuk discovery was staged or real? 87% voted that the clip was staged.
