Clouds of Secrecy

In November, 2006, BBC East broadcast an InsideOut 30 minute special entitled ‘Clouds of Secrecy’. This investigated Porton Down’s 1960s BW spray ‘attacks’ on Norfolk (with the city of Norwich as the main target). It also revealed a recently discovered series of sprayings, conducted in the Cardington Bedford area in the early 1960s, which involved the use of Porton Down’s clandestine spray vehicle — a specially converted 1 ton Morris van.

The unsuspecting population in the East of England was sprayed covertly with the poisonous compound at least 76 times.
