Summary

Workers at British defence contractor QinetiQ discuss some of their secretive projects, including scientists and engineers who are building robots to defuse Afghanistan's deadly roadside bombs - as well as adapting them to help in dangerous civilian situations in the UK. The programme also explores a project to make wind turbines less visible to radar, and follows the work of specialists racing to get Chinook helicopters ready for front-line service. Narrated by Gerard Fletcher.
