Underground Worlds – Swiss Bunkers

I just received a copy from the Underworld World documentary series produces by Phoenix Television .

Hidden beneath our feet lie extraordinary spaces, caves and tunnels. They’ve been designed and built by us as well formed by nature. But how were they created and adapted? By whom, and why? For centuries, subterranean structures have captured our imagination. Now we’re going further and deeper to unearth the stories, the mysteries and the secrets of Underground Worlds.
