Gleneagles Borehole 4, the BBC Documentary

PROOF POSITIVE ON T.V. Further drilling at Gleneagles in September 98, was done in a paddock beside the renowned Mark Phillips Riding School and the estate's nursery greenhouses, in connection with a BBC television documentary about dowsing. We agreed that 2 boreholes should be drilled close together to prove how vital precision in Geodivining / groundwater surveying really is. The best sources had already been drilled, but a fairly good linear fracture zone was confirmed crossing a convenient and photogenic meadow. We filmed the whole process from start to finish. The map-dowsing was filmed live in Jimmy Kidd's office, and the divining on site to confirm and mark the exact sites for drilling. Doug placed one marker on his source, forecasting a yield of 27,000 l/hr from a 120m bore, and he marked a second site just 12m away, where he expected a very low yield. This allowed just enough space for two drilling rigs to work safely, side by side. Two boreholes were drilled simultaneously,
