Tony Robinson joins an unprecedented archaeological expedition in Belgium to search for a bunker, or dugout, from the Great War known as the Vampir.
Beneath the paralysed front in Belgium, elite tunnelling companies created a deep maze of tunnels and dugouts, which was the only safe place to hide when shelling made the surface hell above.
But more than simply a place to live, the underground became a place to fight. England's best miners and engineers volunteered to apply their trade to making war.
Few records exist. But beneath Flanders Fields, the fruits of their labours are preserved, many metres below ground.
