Excellent  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I can recommend this DVD as it gives an inside view how this secret wireless war during WW-II was set-up. You see e.g. the MARK-II radio. Also it's a memory of all those professional radio-operators who help to win this war. I think it's also the start of their hobby to become a radio-ham.
Lot of pictures about old radio equipment.
It's worth all money to own this DVD.
Also Pat Hawker - G3VA of the RSGB published about this network of radio-operators during WW-II.
On the DVD, you can see and hear the radio technicians, I think some of them are now radio-hams.

It a recommendion to your digital radio-amteur library.

Well done documentary of a little known part of WW2  Time owned: more than 12 months
This video consists of two 60 minute documentaries.
1. Beyond Bletchely Park - Talks to several of the thousand Volunteer listeners monitored the air waves, recorded any strange CW messages encountered and sent them on the Bletchley Park for analysis. Some of the spy sets used during the war are discussed.
2. Black Propaganda - documents the efforts and effectiveness of mimicking Nazi broadcasts using a 500,000 watt transmitter to reach Germany.
The videos are well done, quite interesting and document the great contribution to the war effort made by our fellow British Hams.
