1998: A team of explosives experts from The Durand Group begin an operation to neutralise a 600lb (272kg) Camouflet charge. It is located in a deep fighting tunnel in the LA FOLIE (P) mining sector within the Canadian memorial site on Vimy Ridge. P73G3 was only metres away from a German fighting tunnel driven forward from their second line trenches from an incline known as ST19. It was one of three entrances to a self-contained enemy mining system opposite and below the British front line positions. The mine had been laid by - Captain Richard Brisco MC R.E.- a daring-do soldier with an eventful past. His exploits fighting the Germans underground are well documented and his short time at Vimy provides the canvas for this fascinating documentary film.
