BBC TV Presenter and Comedian Angela Barnes visits Scotland's Secret Bunker.  Angela is an ardent nuclear bunker enthusiast with a passion for all things Cold War.

You don’t have to be a Cold War nerd like I am to have a fun, informative and intriguing day out at Scotland’s Secret Bunker. My pals and I had a brilliant day in the bunker, discovering just how the United Kingdom was preparing itself for nuclear war in the mid 20th century. It’s fascinating, chilling and quite arresting stuff, particularly for those of us that remember the tensions between East and West in our lifetimes. Get yourself down there and discover what bunker life would have been like if the worst had happened – perfect thing to do with your holidays, and there’s ZERO chance of you getting sunburnt – win!
