A fascinating look at some of Bedfordshire’s secret WWII operations – from forged ration books, to radio stations broadcasting to occupied Europe, to German newspapers printed in Luton. Jean Yates looks at Bedfordshire’s very large and very secret part in WWII.

'The story tells some of the Bedfordshire WWII secret operations. The forged ration books and documents, the radio station broadcasting black propaganda all over occupied Europe, the Czech radio station keeping their President in Buckinghamshire in touch with his resistance fighters, the Met. Office at Dunstable working with Bletchley Park, and the German newspapers printed in Luton. Bedfordshire played a very large part in the Secret War.'

Talks are approx. 1 hour long, with time for questions.
