Operation Babylon TV Action Annual 1974

“Operation Babylon” refers to the aliens’ plan to convert SHADO operatives’ speech to gibberish, preventing them from communicating with one another and planning a defence against a UFO invasion. The title is based on the Biblical storey of the Tower of Babel in Babylon, in which God is said to have caused humanity to use different languages in different parts of the world, rather than the single language that was once said to be spoken by all, making it difficult for everyone to understand one another.
