Description (in English): 

This British mockumentary consisted of a (fictional) website documenting a (fictional) tv crew who were making a documentary about the solar eclipse in 1999. Readers who signed up in 1999, could see the web site develop from day to day, and were "accidentally" also signed up to receive private emails between the characters. As the eclipse approached the story became more and more mysterious and frightening. Murders happened and readers were able to join in the detective work. After the initial run, the website and emails were archived, but the website was no longer available by 2003. The Internet Archive has the cover page archived but no more. When the website was still online, readers could access the emails by clicking the "admin only" link which gave access to mock unix accounts for the tv crew.
