    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The Flanders referred to in this episode is the overlapping parts of modern Belgium, France and the Netherlands. The Vlaanderen (Dutch-Flemish) literally means Flooded Land or lowland and the name first appeared in the 8th century.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • John Newland: (opening dialogue) What you are about to see, is a matter of human record. Explain it, we cannot, disprove it, we cannot, we simply invite you to explore with us the amazing world of the unknown. What you are about to see has haunted the minds of men for forty years. A miracle or a soldier's faith, you decide. At 22:30 hours on the night of November the 14th 1915, something happened in the war darkened skies over Europe. It was seen by a British motor unit here in Flanders. It was by a Russian sentry on the East Prussian front, it interrupted the maneuvers of an Italian infantry company here, it was observed by a reconnassence plane over the English Channel. Thousands of soldiers from all the nations of Europe, ultimately embarked but in the beginning there were only four.

      • John Newland: (closing dialogue) Of everything that happened perhaps the final miracle was the chance meeting of two enemy soldiers because a sergeant wanted a taste of cognac. Within 24 hours similar reports were coming in from all over Europe. Actually no one was ever sure what happened in the sky that dark November night. Ours is one version of the story there are many others, but the one fact to remember is that more than a thousand men did see or sense something. In any event it is a matter of public record that for awhile men could not kill each other. And in the end if all else is false, that is miracle enough.
