Filmed at the Chalke Valley Literary Festival last year. Ian Hislop was very much in evidence on the Sunday, and even got a special VIP guest tour of the WW1 trench with all the bangs and flashes included...

Not going this year because of a clash of events but it's a unique event well worth a visit. http://www.cvhf.org.uk/
