I know where we're going

Jane has done me some favours. Big favours.

First of all, she inserted some business cards in the envelopes that have been sent out with the Big Weekend tickets - they point people to this site, so that should help to raise awareness of all this. Hello to anyone who's visiting for the first time. Welcome to the mystery.

Secondly, she got me into the Radio 1 buidling this evening. She didn't like being on camera, but she let me film as much as I could.

You will not believe what I found. Take a look.


Looks like our man had only just left - heading for Preston. I think we can all be sure where this is leading now: the Big Weekend. But what is he planning?

I've been told he's dangerous. He probably knew we were onto him, but I almost get a sense that he's messing with us. That FIA sticker in my living room still makes me shiver.

I've cleared my next weekend. I can't leave town yet, but I'm going to try to get myself up to Preston and find this guy. Help me out if you can.

OK, so the thing with all the pins in it...

Thats obviously the clue here..

A map or something?

Give me a sec haha


Meh, the video is pretty random.
Didnt know what I could do but thought that puzzle looked a bit like braille? This is what I got:


Any ideas?


I got to thinking that the reversi board was something too - binary numbers, with white = 1 and black = 0. The sum of all the resulting decimal numbers was 20405. In other words, not really helpful at all.

The braille seemed pretty close.


Anyone know who Sean Bailey is?


The puzzle is a game called Solitaire I believe.

Why if they're spending hours there is the room empty when you managed to get in? If it's so secret why is there no lock on the door?


I have been following this for weeks now and I am really starting to believe that it's all a big hoax.

Paul is in on it.

It seems badly acted and unconvincing now.

I really hope I'm wrong. Interesting? Yes. Earth-shattering? I now believe - probably not.


I agree with you Simon, unfortunately as the saga continues, the story seems more and more unplausible...

But hey, I never really bought it from the start, I guess we're all just here to see what happens..

+ it is pretty exciting :)


Come on, we know it's not real. We're not stupid. But it's all a game, and has me intrigued, and judging by the forum thread on unofficialmills.co.uk so does many others.

http://www.silburngriggsmining.com/ - well, this is getting interesting. Silburn-Griggs Mines ( http://perplexcitywiki.com/wiki/Silburn-Griggs ) are related to Perplex City. Sure enough, a website for that (http://www.violetunderground.com/archives/2007/05/apolyton_again.html ) had a post yesterday referring to BBC Radio 1.


Also, http://www.silburngriggsmining.com/projectfia/ is... interesting (thanks Jess).


Unsurprising really, but the "About" page at http://www.silburngriggsminig.com/ contains all three F.I.A. words, just separated from each other and not in the right order.


Sorry, typo! I meant http://www.silburngriggsmining.com/


Oh wow! So this is a Perplex City ARG? Why didn't I think of that?!Well at least that makes the idea of all this not being real concrete..

I feel a bit of a fool haha..


Side note - that actually looks like a Go board (though I'm pretty sure it's not a legal position...)


The words on the Silburn Griggs site are in reverse order, and Frozen seems to be a link that doesn't do anything. Odd...


Joe: Click on the words in the 'correct' order and you get directed to the project fia page makomk refers to above...


The perplex city mining site isnt the same thing as the one with the project FIA page.

Is this real, i feel such a fool! But its still so interesting!


Tut tut, whoever made the messages made a mistake.. message 38 has 'Treble Clef' signing his message with 'V' instead of 'TC'


Hmmm....it just gets weirder every time.That page from the mining site is strange.Whats the override? Trying to take over the station? Changing the signal....I dunno.I'm not good with techno stuff.

Hey, even weirder (for those of us who are technically inclined).... silburngriggsmining.com, frozenindigoangel.com and pauldenchfield.com all used the same company to register their internet domain names: a company in the US called GoDaddy.com.

Slightly bizarre, considering there are thousands of companies selling domain names.


I Love you girls

In April and May 2007, I claimed there was a cover-up at the BBC to do with the words 'Frozen Indigo Angel'. It was all part of an Alternate Reality Game run by Radio 1 and the guys behind Perplex City - in fact, I encountered a character or two from Perplex City myself.

During the game, we gave away tickets to the Big Weekend, musical instruments belonging to major bands, and introduced thousands of people to a whole new world. All for free.

If you'd like to re-live the adventure, check out my first video, and then watch the rest.
