Currently in post production and due to complete 2019, the feature is filmed by Gabriel Bean and Danny Strong, edited and co-produced by Gabriel Bean and narrated, co-produced and exec' produced by Caroline Strong.
We had an exciting week filming the archaeological dig run by Dr Iain Banks and his team from the University of Glasgow. They were searching for evidence of tunnels and have uncovered significant finds to pursue a further, more intensive investigation in the future. This makes for an intriguing final chapter in our forthcoming documentary feature on the camp and a tangible bridge between past and present. A huge thank you to Iain and his students and team.
