BBC SPECIAL REPORT - CH.5
Atlantis has been the subject of countless films, as has Nazi gold and oil polluting our oceans, but never have all these elements come together under one roof as a submarine movie. Aiming for a screenplay 90-110 pages max.
JILL BIRD'S BBC WORLD NEWS SPECIAL REPORT, CHARLEY TEMPLE INVESTIGATING
Somewhat intrigued at the answers to just a couple of question live on air. Jill Bird gets the go ahead from the BBC News World Service editor in chief to investigate what seems to be an incredible expose of the North Sea oil industry, but a group who claim to have been framed, assaulted, imprisoned, and clearly challenging the legitimacy of the British justice system, claiming conspiracy - all the way to the top.
"Yes, I agree, get her on it if she's available." Jill's editor was singing from the same hymn sheet.
Clearly, these Terramentals had an axe to grind. A fairly sizeable axe at that.
Claymore rig was now just a pile of twisted charred metal.
Jill Bird reports on the demands of the Terramentals daring attack. The whole world is shocked to learn of the North Sea pollution cover up. Charley Temple investigates the government's efforts to silence criticism with radical law changes. Likening it to Henry VIII and Nazi German political tactics.

DEAD & NO PROSECUTIONS - Incredible to think that with
such loss of life, the CPS would not push to gain a
conviction. The obvious charge of Corporate Manslaughter
springs to mind. Such as with the Network Rail case, and rail maintenance firm Balfour Beatty.
Where six of their senior employees were to face manslaughter charges over the October 2000 Hatfield rail crash, it was announced, 9 July 2003.
Disillusioned eco activists are imprisoned by the British, for peacefully protesting in London about unrealistically low fines for oil spills in the North Sea, demonstrating strictly in accordance with their Article 9 and 10 Human Rights. They are targeted by fossil fuel industry fraudsters, who bribe police officials and court judges to secure a conviction, with the backing of corrupt ministers of state who have undeclared personal investments in oil drilling companies: Amoco, BP, Shell, Total. That sets in motion a train of events, where, having been framed, the ever more determined environmentalists build a mini-sub, fast enough and especially equipped, to sink or capture Astute, Aukus and US Seawolf class submarines. Having captured HMS Neptune, the Terramentals torpedo a BP owned rig, also destroying two others (Shell), with the looming threat to target all 150 plus, operating in the North Sea. The oil producers are temporarily forced to shut down production, as a result of the significant media coverage and public outrage on realization of the pollution. The UN asks John Storm to provide a geodata survey on the environmental damage.
