Legacy Episode 1 of 2

Legacy - devised by David Ian Neville, Episode One by Louise Ironside.

Following the death of their parents, twins Jules and Harry were brought up by their grandmother Rose. Remote and eccentric, it is not until after Rose's death that Jules and Harry begin to discover who she really was and what she did in the war.

After finding clues to the whereabouts of the legacy in Rose's attic, Harry sets off for the City of London. Harry thinks he's heading for a security vault but finds himself trapped in an underground complex of bunkers. Rose it emerges worked for the secret services during the war and helped to develop The Legacy Project - a secret weapon built to disrupt and defeat the Nazis in the event of them being able to occupy London. The weapon, hidden underground, was designed to destroy the centre of London with other weapons being replicated in major cities throughout Britain. It should have been deactivated after the war but was kept secretly in commission for use during the Cold War.

Rose believed it should have been destroyed and had a life-long goal to de-activate it. But she ran out of time. Now Harry and Jules have been left the challenge but they are not the only people trying to find the Legacy Project, and not everyone has peaceful intentions.

There is also an online audio game linked to LEGACY.
