Daily Record's Footage of Eerie Abandoned Cold War Bunker
Youtuber Urbex Pajerico has been down an unexplored cold war bunker in Scotland, Near Dundee. Abandoned since the early 90s, it is a time-capsule of electronics, maps, utensils and other items left behind by observers planning for nuclear conflict with the USSR.
The Scottish Daily Record says, “The video of the bunker was shared by Youtuber Urbex Pajerico, who was taken to the secret location by a fellow explorer last week. The bunker is accessed from ground level via a mysterious hatch in the middle of a field.”
Such stations were manned by members of the Royal Observer Corps (ROC) and one of their main purposes was to give the dreaded “four minute warning” in the case of a nuclear attack.
The bunker, 6ft underground, has been neglected and almost untouched for at least 26 years, since the Soviet Union fell in 1991. The monitoring posts were sealed shut or demolished after the observers ceased their duties.

LOLA, the LA and London based footage library, have just signed several talented natural history film-makers who have been featured on major networks such as National Geographic, including Pawel Achtel, an award-winning underwater film-maker who has designed his own 2D and 3D underwater camera housings to create outstanding ocean visuals.
The Pawel Achtel collection amongst others was brought to LOLA by Content Brick, LLC. Content Brick was founded by Jessica Napoli a previous head of the National Geographic Film Archive. “Content Brick’s Mission is to ensure talented filmmakers are distributed by the most reputable of companies and Lola was the perfect solution for the Achtel collection” says Jessica.
LOLA now have unique and powerful content from top professionals. Underwater cameraman and film-maker Pawel Achtel is one of them. Amazing material from his shoots in Australian waters is available from LOLA’s website.
Born in Poland, Pawel Achtel left the city life of Sydney to build a film production studio in Tasmania. For the past 20 years he’s been making natural history films, mostly underwater and has filmed in locations from the equator to Antarctica. He’s also worked as a DOP on features and live performances, predominantly using cine-style camera setups.
In 1999 Pawel produced and directed his first film, Aliens of the Sea. This film received the best documentary award at New York International Film Festival (1999); Aliens of the Sea was awarded the First Prize, Gold Camera Award in US International Film Festival and two Awards for outstanding Cinematography in International Wildlife Film Festival, Montana (2000). His engineering skills have helped him create award-winning 2D and 3D underwater camera housings able to record undistorted ultra-high definition underwater motion pictures.
Dominic Dare, Co-founder and Joint CEO of LOLA says, "It’s great to work with Pawel and with the help of Jessica at Content Brick as it fits LOLA’s mission to find amazing quality or unique archive to bring to the market. The footage is simply stunning and his re-breathing technique eliminates any form of air bubbles from distorting the image."
