Documentary following historian Peter Barton and a team of archaeologists as they navigate a network of tunnels constructed beneath the Somme battlefield during the First World War.

The programme unearths the history embedded in the underground labyrinth - facilitated by both the Allied and Central Powers to plant mines beyond enemy lines - and the personal stories of the predominantly British troops who helped dig it during the first two years of the conflict.
