Keith Pybus can be seen here chatting to Shefali in the Shropshire countryside. He has been filmed by Midlands Today discussing the Somme Tunnel at the Bog mines. He says that “the BBC cast me in the role of the very sceptical historian who pooh-poohs the local legends”.

To find out more about this tunnel and tunnelling on the Western Front you can read Keith’s article, From the Bog Mine to a Very Big Bang, in the Stories section of this website.

The report on Midlands Today is due to be aired on Wednesday 29th June.
