Interesting docu presented by AH about spy networks operating from Folkstone during WWI. I had never heard about Louise de Bettignies but her story is fascinating. And AH does a great job too ...

You can watch it here (provided you have access to British TV): ... folkestone

Thanks for this link, bee. I will certainly take a look when I get some time as it looks quite interesting.
(Maybe it will inspire a WWI series from AH? :smile: )

It won't play in Canada, but, yes, maybe AH is doing research for Foyle's Great War - A Prequel. :biggrin:
(Now who would we cast as a young Foyle...? Andrew Scott, perhaps?)

I think it would be neat if he did a sort of 'prequel' (maybe not correct term), with MK playing CF's father during WWI--a police officer during WWI.
