We've taken a break from the dusty trenches and have moved the Shoot to the 'underground' tunnels - constructed above ground in a studio shed at Bohle. The Art Department, SFX, Lighting, Sound and Makeup teams have done an amazing job to create a very claustrophobic and suffocating atmosphere in the low, dripping, muddy tunnels.

Most of the tunnels beneath Hill 60 had names to help identify them. The Aussies named them after familiar places from home. Today's filming was in the 'Townsville' tunnel.
