"Last year, to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the BBC released a ten-part podcast series. Tunnel 29 is an immersive, true story, expertly sound-designed to make you feel like you’re right there alongside the tunnellers digging their way to freedom. Once you start listening, the story sweeps you away in a rapid-fire sequence of 15-minute episodes. Detailed scenes, top-notch sound design and a riveting plot will keep you hooked. As soon as you press play, you’ll find yourself racing through and hungry for more."
