 Cold War – East Anglia The Frontline: a new documentary

In June work started on a new documentary about the Cold War. The film will include a variety of Cold War installations dating back to the 1950s and 60s previously surrounded in mystery and secrecy, together with interviews with people who served in the military at that time and civilians’ first-hand accounts.

The programme will illustrate the key role played by the RAF at Wattisham Airfield and other locations in East Anglia, often regarded as the Front Line during a very dangerous period in world history.

More details will be posted as we progress.
