in the bunker would have slept in one of the six dormitories
which were capable of sleeping up to 300 personnel.
Staff would sleep for six hours and then swap their
bunks with another staff member for the next six.
This was known as Hot Beds.
Along with military personnel
there would have been a fully equipped and staffed BBC sound studio.
They would have issued emergency broadcasts with all other radio
and TV channels off air.
All this time
personnel would never see daylight, they couldnt
even shower as uncontaminated water was too precious
a commodity and remember they may have had to stay
underground for over three months.
RADIO STATION The Bunker would have to broadcast the horrific
news of nuclear attack.
"HOT BEDS" Staff would sleep for 6 hrs and then swap their bunks
with another staff member.
CHAPEL The Bunker contained a chapel with resident clergy.
