Doomsday Bunkers is a new 3-part TV series that will launch on Discovery Channel in the USA on Wed March 7. A GLP forum member saw an ad for it:
it’s about what the title implies… awesome doomsday bunkers, people who build them, how they build them, what they put in them… etc etc.
Here’s more info from a press release:
Dallas-based Deep Earth Bunker owner Scott Bales and his crackerjack team of engineers and craftsmen bring a new dimension to the world of underground living, with an absolute goal of keeping their clients safe from physical, social, financial, political, psychological, and emotional harm. Air systems with nuclear, biological and chemical filters; massive water storage tanks; security systems; gun vaults; and decontamination rooms coupled with custom built kitchens with granite countertops; fine floor finishes; and luxurious bathrooms combine the comfort of above ground living with incomparable security. Bales shares his insight to provide a rare look at the multi-layered survival strategies he uses to build the most invulnerable and comfortable hidden residences in the country.DOOMSDAY BUNKERS features the design and build of survival units with a reveal of the completed project. From sizable underground bunkers with safety measures that include outside hand rails with hidden flame throwers, to special safety structures that include the Pyramid and Tsunami pods, each unit is tested using a battery of attacks that include firearms, fire, and falling vehicles. Each episode is a beginning to end “how to” and “why to” build the ultimate safety zone for those preparing for the worst.
Can’t wait for it screen in Australia! Here’s a pic from the company’s website – perhaps it is one of the bunkers that will be featured on the show?
