Strange Stories UK, The Fairy Investigation Society 1927 - to present.

Strange Stories UK, The Fairy Investigation Society 1927 - to present.

The Fairy Investigation Society (aka FIS), founded in the UK in 1927, exists to report fairy sightings.
This podcast attempts to give a brief history of fairies in the UK (zero to 10 minutes).
Then examines the beginnings of FIS (10 -21 minutes).
then it examines the ideas of Quentin Craufurd (the inspiration for FIS), who explains what is required to view fairies.
Then we continue with the Fairy Investigation Society history and membership between 29:00 minutes to 57:00 minutes.
The final 28 minutes gives some examples of recent fairy sightings as reported to the recent  Fairy census.
The sources used will be available on the blog for strangestoriesuk.com
On the website, I will be happy to answer any questions. Most of the information for the podcast has been taken from the postings of Doctor Simon Young.

Please be advised that the podcast is recorded in one take in my spare time so apologies for the low-fi production.
