Last August we had the pleasure of filming with the team from the hit BBC show ‘Escape to the Country’ and Presenter Jonnie Irwin.

We have filmed with many media organisations in the past seven years but these guys had really done their homework and came to the site fully prepped.

The small production team interviewed our Coleshill expert Bill Ashby (Above) and with the help of National Trust Volunteers Roger Green and Bob Marchant (Below) they explored inside the new replica Operational Base. You can see a short behind the scenes video of the filming here. 

The episode aired on Tuesday 9th May 2017 on BBC One at 3pm. You can watch it here.

p01tn3kpOn Friday 11th November we were featured on BBC Breakfast and BBC News by the BBC’s Robert Hall.

The 28 minutes of total broadcast were broken up into various broadcasts, some were LIVE. These can all be seen here. Also featured in the broadcasts was a tour of a Special Duties bunker in Devon, never before broadcast on television, and live interviews from GHQ Coleshill with our Founder Tom Sykes. You can the longest and most interesting of these below. We would like to thank Robert Hall for his outstanding contribution to this and the BBC for giving our work so much airtime.

Broadmayne D5 PosterIn less than 7 days we will be exhibiting at the Broadmayne D5 event in Dorset.

Broadmayne D5 is an off-shoot of the Weymouth at War’ event which is on over the same weekend. Broadmayne is only a short drive from Weymouth seafront. 

We are hoping to be joined by at least one Dorset Auxilier on the day. This will be a very rare opportunity for you to meet them and ask them any questions.

We will display some of our research and artefacts in our tent and provide the background to the various patrols around the UK with focus on Dorset.

We will also have a few Aux re-enactors as part of our display.

CART County Information Officers (CIOs) from Dorset, Devon and GHQ at Swindon will be on hand to answer any questions and help trace records of loved ones.
