Episode Seven - Children of the Wolf Pit

In this episode we take a look at the life and strange times of two children who crawled out of a pit in 12th century Suffolk. Where they came from remains a mystery that no-one has been able to explain. The most curious factor was the colour of the their skin - bright green. Were they aliens? Fairies? Refugees? Or something altogether different?

The infamous 'Hard Stand Monster' was apparently prowling this area during the 1970s, scaring and tearing up the airforce base.
