Dave Branfield says " I was a police officer working nights in 1980.  I was on patrol driving a panda car in the Keynsham area when at about 1am I saw a bright light in the sky coming from the marina area. I drove down to find out what was going on and came across the film crew. They thought I was an actor, and the director questioned why a police car and actor had been requested as it wasn't required for this scene. I then told him I was a real one who trying to find out what was going on as it looked like the night had been turned into daylight.  He laughed and pointed me in the direction of the food wagon!"
