    God, I remember this Deep Tunnel short film. It made a big impression on me when I originally saw it (when it was broadcast — I was maybe 13) and the images from this have stayed with me over the decades. Whenever they briefly mention the Deep Tunnel project on the news, these are the images I think of. Thank you for making this available online!
