Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

Hospital Mystery

By Hilary Porter

December 1972, I had the misfortune to have to go into hospital for a small operation. After the anesthesia I had a reaction, which meant I didn’t come round for 17 hours; and when I did it was 4am in the morning!

There was no one around at all, I needed the bathroom, so carefully I slid out of bed and put my slippers on, then shuffled across the ward into the bathroom. I had noticed the day before a wooden cabinet on the wall, with its door always kept locked.

"This was now fully open and what was inside made me stare in disbelief."

There where about 6 shelves, and on them jars with fetuses ranging from 13 weeks gestation to over 20 weeks. Yet these where no normal fetuses. They looked partly human and partly something very odd indeed.

Were these freaks or the result of some genetic experiment; because I have never seen a human baby with large black eyes and very large heads? And, without exception, all of them had a strange red mark in the center of their chests.

"I suddenly felt that I shouldn’t be in this place, in fact the whole experience of seeing these things freaked me out."


Drawn from memory by Hilary Porter, 1972.

Surely this was something which no one should be allowed to see and I began to get the feeling that I could be in some kind of danger here. I got back in bed and pretended to be asleep.

A nurse came into my ward a few minutes later with something under a white cover. She went into the bathroom, and I heard what I’m sure was the cabinet door slam shut and clicking of the lock. I got very bad feelings from that hospital and I was glad to go home later that day.


My name is Hilary Porter and I live in Hampshire in the United Kingdom. I am the co-founder of B.E.A.M.S - The British Earth & Aerial Mysteries Society, a long established investigation and studies forum dealing with all aspects of unexplained phenomena and the paranormal.

Since my childhood I have experienced numerous abduction-type experiences and had some major UFO sightings. From the mid-sixties onwards I have been a researcher of UFOs and related subjects which has taken me down a fascinating path. For a number of years I have contributed a collection of articles to well known periodicals such as 'Alien Encounters', 'Witness' and also had material appear under various pseudonyms in books such as Nick Redferns' 'Cosmic Crashes' and 'Covert Agenda'. I have also appeared on Live TV's the 'Why Files' program."

When I left school in the early 60's I had several jobs in engineering companies of which there where many in this area. Then I saw an advertisement in our local paper for engineers needed at what was then the site of Elliott Automation, Frimley in Surrey. I was successful at the interview and got a job in the micro circuitry laboratory; I knew this was where the future in electronics was heading and I wanted to be part of it. In time we were taken over by Marconi. From the very second this took place nothing was ever the same again. The work changed to very hush-hush stuff, everything in duplicate and on a strictly need to know basis.

It was at this time that strange things started to happen within the company, accounts of which are in my book. Reports of Hexagonal craft where coming in from witnesses who not only lived near this site but from the general area as well. Because of my artistic skills I was asked by the chief draughtsman if I would consider an apprenticeship as a draughts woman, I jumped at the chance, and became one of only a handful of woman working in a very male dominated environment. This work took me all over the company into many laboratories and offices even to outside firms from time to time.

All employees had to sign the Official Secrets Act and it’s only now I can give the reader some insight as to what it was like to work in this environment.
