Secret Map of Britain...

After the last two weekends working (2 hours early) i should be off bike packing somewhere but the weather isn't great. Heavy showers and between lots of bugs - corn lice and flying ants have been in abundance this summer despite the coldest winter for years that everyone said cold weather is good for killing off...er bugs! .
These cider induced evenings always involve music (can you here it from your place?) and web surfing which always seems to often end in military stuff, now why is that?, maybe cause a lot of it is either pretty crazy or amazing stuff carried out by normal human beings in the face of adversity...

Rewind to the cold war. You know I'm always out finding ROC bunkers?, here is a film of a restored ROC post and what went on in the bunkers...



And here`s a East Lothian ROC bunker i did a film in last year...



Mark Thomas `Secret Map of Britain`
loved this when it was on CH4, this was a brilliant series. If your a map geek like me you will notice that military installations are sometimesnot on the OS maps.
Around 2-3000 military sites are in the UK.
Here is a great series that revealed some of these places...



Bunker freaks watch this, Mark has the control HQ phone number!...



Continuing this is for real, its ok though as the containers are drop tested...from 9 meters!



Part 4 and the SAS and National Security...



And part 5...Mark Thomas reveals all...
