Halifax Underground (1 x 30)


Halifax has a rich military history. Founded in 1749 by the British, the city was designed with the centrepiece being Fort George, the military structure perched at the top of Citadel Hill. Legend has it that secret tunnels were built underneath the city streets to connect the Citadel with the Armoury and perhaps even George's Island located in the middle of Halifax harbour.

Halifax Underground is a half hour documentary that will take viewers deep under the streets of Halifax in pursuit of the legendary underground tunnel system. Viewers will visit restricted areas that lie beneath Citadel Hill and George’s Island and explore bricked over passageways to reveal what lies on the other side. The film will introduce viewers to a group of explorers and archaeologists who are determined to go to places long forgotten in an attempt to solve this century-long mystery.
