I think we better clear up some confusion as to when these newly admitted UK '___' experiments took place.
There is a very interesting video of the tests being carried out... I believe it was shot in the 1940s.

I thought this was old news as I have seen a TV program on it twice. Or was the program I saw about the US militarys tests using '___'?
Let me make this clear- this new admission by the UK Ministry of Defence refers to new disclosures
about a series of experiments carried out in
the early-mid fifties
by Porton Down scientists on behalf of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS/MI6).
The commonly available video showing the effects of '___' on British soldiers was of a film taken by Porton Down in the mid- sixties
. This film
detailed part of a series of experiments carried out to determine whether '___' could be used as a battlefield incapacitant
. These experiments
were named Operation MONEYBAGS-LOOSE CHANGE-RECOUNT. All codenames have references to the old UK money pounds (£), shillings (S) and pence (D)
This is an example of what passes for humour at Porton Down.
No television programmes have been made about the newly admitted series of experiments which investigated the use of '___' as an aid to
One more time- video=1960s...new MOD admission= 1950s
And dubiousone...I concur..you're absolutely right- it was an atrocity.
