From 1953 to 1959, a serial killer or killers stalked Pretoria’s Naai Draai (Lover’s Lane). He targeted couples in cars knowing that, due to the elicit nature of their roundezvous’, many victims would be hesitant to come forward. His capture would lead to an amazing revelation regarding his identity and now, while his murder weapon rests on display in the South African Police Museum, his legacy continues. This is the story of The Panga Man.

RTG Presents: Urbane Myths Episode 1 - The Vela Incident

UrbaneMyths_851x315.jpg

On the 22nd of September 1979, near the Prince Edward Islands off Antarctica, there was an event, an incident that has gone by several names including The Vela Incident and The South Atlantic Flash. A double flash of light was seen and recorded by an American Vela Hotel Satellite. 39 years later, no official explanation has been given as to its origin. Why the silence?

Because the Vela Hotel satellite had one purpose: to detect nuclear detonations. I look at this story with Les Allen and discuss what may or may not have happened off our coast all those years ago.
