Crop Circles: The Ultimate Undercover Investigation

Despite the title, there’s nothing ‘undercover’ or ‘ultimate’ going on here. Cheesy as a deli counter 2003 documentary from Julian Gibsone for The Crop Circle Connector. Simeon Hein, Andreas Muller, Stuart Dike, Dan Darby, Peter Sorensen, Charles Mallett, Frances Mallett, are among the interviewees.

CircleSpeak

Along with Croppies, perhaps our favourite circles documentary. Its subtitle, “A Journey Into The Heart Of Crop Circle Country”, says it all. Featuring one of the biggest cast lists of any circles doc, including Steve Alexander, Charles Mallett, Michael Glickman, Colin Andrews, Matthew Williams, Lucy Pringle, Terence Meaden, Pat Delgado, Busty Taylor, Peter Sorensen, Doug Bower, John Lundberg, George Wingfield, Francine Blake, Karen Alexander, Freddy Silva, Andy Thomas, William Levengood, Ed Sherwood, Kris Sherwood, Ron Russell, Simeon Hein, Suzanne Taylor, Polly Carson, Tim Carson, Isabelle Kingston, John Wabe, Dan Darby, Geoff Stray, amongst others. Recommended viewing.

Crop Circles: Quest For Truth

Hoaxing Activity In The Etchilhampton Area

According to an article posted recently on the Silent Circle site, the “Etchilhampton Hill (Wiltshire, UK) area [has been] marked for substantial hoaxing effort” in 2016. The article is worth quoting in full:

“The area marked – north of Etchilhampton Village, Wiltshire, UK – has been marked by crop circle hoaxers and their supporters for substantial crop circle hoaxing activity during the summer of 2016.

The support structure that operates alongside the actual circle hoaxers comprises cropcircleconnector.com website, drone aerial photographer/s and Paul Jacobs, owner of the notorious yellow van – who charges unsuspecting visitors to the circles he covers outrageous fees to enter the given circle/s he covers.

The Holy Trinity: Jacobs and the yellow van, CCC website and convicted crop circle hoaxer / Drone photographer, Williams. It’s a scam and has nothing to do with the ‘real’ crop circle phenomenon. The primary reasons for the scam are…financial gain, website hits and something that amounts to deviant kicks for the hoaxers..they seem to get a thrill of sorts from conning people into believing that their vandalism is in some way special and meaningful. slightly creepy!”

We do wonder how Charles Mallett knows this, exactly; does he have a “Deep Throat” circle making source? Is it merely guesswork on the grounds that the Etchilhampton farmers are known to be circles-friendly whereas a lot of other Wiltshire farmers are prone to cutting? It’s not exactly uncommon for the area to have circles; it has at least one or two every season. Only time will tell if Charles’ prediction is accurate.

Addendum January 2017: As it turns out, only one circle appeared in the Etchilhampton area, which statistically means nothing for Charles’ claim. And as far as we’re aware, this circle had nothing to do with the “Holy Trinity” mentioned in Charles’ post, and merely appeared, unassuming, waiting to be discovered, as all the best circles should.

Ancient Aliens – Circles From The Sky

Somewhat bland and sensationalist “are crop circles made by aliens?” documentary. Charles Mallett, Linda Moulton Howe, Eltjo Haselhoff, Nancy Talbot, Gary King, and sundry ufologists provide the research perspective. Rob irving, John Lundberg, and Wil Russell recreate the May 1 2005 Alton Priors circle for the cameras.

Sick Of Crop Circles

2007.07.11_16.10.31_-_Steve_AlexanderCharles Mallett interviews a German police officer about a curious experience of sickness – including vomiting – whilst visiting a crop circle that appeared near Savernake Forest, Wiltshire, on 11 July 2007.

We feel rather sorry for the poor anonymous croppie who visited the circle next and had to contend with the guy’s spew all over the place. Perhaps this accounts for some of the reports of mysterious sticky substances found in crop circles?

Chasing The Crop Circles

A short new documentary featuring some of the early 2015 season circles. We love documentaries like this, croppies exploring and enjoying the circles on their own terms, some theories thrown in but no ugliness.
