First Contact: An Alien Encounter imagines a situation where we finally receive a message from another life form.

Experts believe we just need to look at what happened as we went into lockdown for clues.

As soon as the first messages filter out, people do what they do best – use social media to come up with hilarious memes.

But over the next 12 days, the world collapses as contact with a terrifying alien life form becomes a definite possibility.

Scenes in the docu-drama show people taking to the streets and beginning to clear supermarket shelves as panic sets in.

according to dr Beth Singler, we can expect behavior similar to that seen in the early days of the pandemic, when desperate shoppers stocked up on loo roll and pasta.

“With a signal that unclear, with no obvious intent and message, I think there would be a lot of uncertainty – and uncertainty breeds fear,” said the Cambridge University anthropologist.

“We see disruptions in people’s everyday lives when big events are happening.

“We saw this with the global pandemic, when people rushed out anticipating circumstances where supplies would be limited.

“I think you’ll see the feeling growing that I need to do something, so what can I do to prepare and I’ll go out and buy canned goods, I’ll buy toilet paper, I’ll stock up on water just in case.

“And that’s a way to make sure you’re still in control of the situation.”

After the first garbled message is picked up, the drama begins on day six when a scientist at an observatory spots a 200 km long object moving at a speed of three million kilometers per hour.

News leaks and US military scouting for UFOs admits to being “unaware” before confirming it’s an “unidentified aerial phenomenon.”

Then riots erupt as Americans, fearing an imminent invasion, arm themselves with arms sales doubling across the country.

Others start buying telescopes and start looking up at the sky to see the object.

Meanwhile, people on Earth are beginning to figure out what their message to extraterrestrials would be.

Professor Michael Garrett, director of the Jodrell Bank Center for Astrophysics, said it might be wise to “gather as much information before we send a message back”.

“We have this thing in our heads that is limited by physical size, but there might be other things out there that have a capacity completely beyond what we can imagine.

“It’s a bit like ants trying to communicate with humans.”

However, others are clearer about what we should be sending back.

“You heard the sound they sent us? I would send them an equally annoying message back,” says one man.

First Contact: An Alien Encounter will air on November 2nd at 9pm on BBC Two.
