Not the usual sort of video we produce but this thing is awesome. The worlds largest aircraft takes to the sky for its first flight. Capable of saying up in the air for more than two weeks at a time, or carrying 10 tonnes of load and it probably uses less fuel than my land rover.
This is the bunker complex from where Admiral Karl Dönitz commanded the German U-Boat’s towards the end of WWII. It is now mostly derelict, but the underground bunker remains intact.
Vehicles of the exclusion zone is a short video featuring just some of the vehicles that have become victim of the Chernobyl Power Station disaster of 1986.
What was once, one of the most secret places on earth now lies abandoned within the radioactive Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. One of the first videos from our week long filming trip.
The second of two civil defence bunkers we managed to find our way into. Its amazing what is down here and all pretty easy to see in this video as the electricity was still on in this bunker so we switched the lights on.
A very rare opportunity to see inside a secret Soviet Civil Defence bunker situated beneath a key part of Kiev’s public transport network. In the event of a nuclear attack by Britain or the USA the dated equipment in these bunkers (which is still present and working) would be used to track civilian casualties and damage on the surface. Today the bunkers which are still owned by the government, officially form part of the countries civil defence planning, ironically they are now more likely to be used to protect Ukraine from Russia than from the West. Can you believe what has been left inside when they were mothballed?
This video takes you on a trip along the path of the Clove underground river in Kiev. We entered about 3km outside of the city centre and exited in the main shopping area, much to the surprise of the late night shoppers.
Under Kiev a mass of drains, underground rivers, metro tunnels, bunkers and cable shafts link the under ground world with the surface. This is a short video of our afternoon exploring some of them.
The Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory’s one mile radio telescope, gazing back to the earliest days of the universe since 1964.
In a forest just outside of Berlin 11km of underground tunnels link an abandoned testament to pre-war German architecture and engineering.
Whilst doing some drone filming in Normandy for a documentary on Pegasus bridge we had some time off and put it to good use looking for disused World War II bunkers on the Normandy beaches.
On the night of 5 June 1944, a force of 181 men landed silent wooden gliders within feet of ‘Pegasus Bridge’ in Normandy, France. This marked the beginning of ‘D Day’ and the allied invasion of occupied Europe.
The former RAF and USAF base at Greenham Common, including the GAMA compound that housed the mobile nuclear cruise missiles during the 80’s and early 90’s.
An abandoned Soviet Russian coal mine at Grumant and the associated port and settlement at Coles Bay on Spitsbergen in the Arctic
A video of Maen Offeren Slate Quarry above the North Wales town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. It depicts the quarry’s gradual decline both underground and on the surface using video and photographs collected over the last 10 years.
From 1963 to 1992 NSA Spy Station Teufelsberg listened in to Soviet Union radio signals as part of the Echelon cold war spy network for the UK and USA. Now it stands on the highest hill in West Berlin derelict and abandoned.
In amongst these roads that go nowhere, buildings that were never built and street lights that waited patiently to light the businesses that never came there is a secret……
