    C4. Started at 21.00 the neet. You may wish to take a look. It is fairly ******* fab. Caution - contains people from the RAF. Like the first time.
  2. Very interesting. Apart from the modern crabs who just, well, lower the tone.

    Wonder if one of them is 'Hagar?'
  3. Is it just me that's noticing the double entendres in the commentary?
  4. Double nothing ----- "Shaft" is a word it is easy to change the inference of depending on how you say it.
  5. Very good but dissappointing that silly things like H&S called a halt to digging down for Harry

    Also, was the Crab officer jolly days out building thing really necessary? A bit dull, and did the prisoners have so much access to duck tape?

    The Polish archaeologist would have got it too

    Interesting program - even if it did have a tendency to 'discover' information that's been widely available in the literature for years - a case in point being the valves on the air pump.

    But as an illustration of the technical difficulties of digging in the sand - absolutely first class. No wonder the German who decided to site the camp there thought "that'll put an end to tunnelling".

    It must have taken serious guts to do the tunnelling knowing a serious cave in could trap you beyond possibility of rescue.

  7. Pretty good, apart from the archaeologist saying that it was a "big ask". Twat.
  8. They can't afford to let them fly any more and so this is to stop them all sitting around with their fingers up their 'arisses. (A bit.)

    They were more than made up for by the Polish bint.
