This digital short was commissioned for the Channel 4 programme SWEN – The News Backwards, produced by Flame TV in 2000. It is a journalistic investigation of the Menwith Hill US Airbase in Northfolk; its alleged connection with monitoring telecommunications and spying on companies to further American interests around the world. We were given access to a limited amount of ITN archive footage to use in the film and rest of the piece was made from interviews and footage recorded on location in Northfolk.
