Many years ago in Germany, Pilentum Television was born when the author Markus Lenz was trying to make photos and videos of miniature cars in macro photography mode. Because toy cars did not move, Markus was looking for other objects to film. Finally, he found model trains. It is like a challenge to make videos in macro photography mode of model trains in action. In the course of time a preference has emerged to film model railway layouts and model railroad displays to create entertaining, high-quality video documentations. Today, Pilentum Television is one of the leading video networks for toy trains, model trains, model railroading and railway modelling. Pilentum Television presents high-quality documentaries about the wonderful miniature world of model trains. Our modern world offers an unbelievable number of leisure activities, such as video games, railway simulations on the computer and much more. Therefore, such a wonderful hobby as rail modeling should not be forgotten. Model railroading is educationally valuable, and railway modelling promotes the creativity of children. Finally, model trains are a great hobby for adults. Actually, Pilentum Television offers more than 350 videos on YouTube, Dailymotion and Amazon Prime Video, for free. In order to keep track of all video films, this e-book was created. It is a filmography containing descriptions and additional information about Pilentum Television’s movies.

Geographically, this guidebook focuses on the eastern part of the Burgundy Region in eastern France. There are 15 cycling routes mapped and profiled. The routes also include 47 discussions of a few villages, historical people and points of interest along the way. Included with each route is the latest method for listing Waypoints that locates its longitude and latitude in degrees, minutes and seconds (to the hundredth), and in digital format. As with all other BICYCLE YOUR FRANCE guidebooks, this guide also offers a companion, QUEUE SHEETS, with just the Waypoint GPS located listings, route maps and elevation profile. My first guidebook and old friend, BICYCLE YOUR FRANCE: EXPLORING BURGUNDY, is renovated and revamped as BURGUNDY EXPLORATIONS. All eleven of the original route maps have been redrawn. Four new routes are included. Elevation data was acquired every 200 meters on each route and new profiles drafted.

The first book to recount the stories of every single Allied serviceman (including more than a hundred and fifty American aircrew) helped by one of the major escape lines of World War Two, complete with details of their helpers. Escape lines – which should more properly be called evasion lines – can be described as organisations that helped stranded servicemen make their way from enemy occupied territories back to friendly territory. Of the three major escape lines running through France during the Second World War – the Pat O’Leary line, which covered most of the country, the Comete line, which ran from Holland and Belgium through France to the Pyrenees, and Bourgogne – Bourgogne (aka Burgundy) is the least well known. Escape lines are a largely unrecognised, or at least often overlooked, episode of the Second World War. For those who were involved – the helpers (mostly French, Belgian and Dutch civilians) – or who benefitted from them (mostly British, Commonwealth and American servicemen) this was a personal war, which was, and remains, almost unknown to the outside world, despite the tragic loss of so many of those concerned. To the families of the servicemen saved, it must have seemed like a miracle to have their loved ones returned safely to them. For the helpers and their families who were caught, it often meant death. This comprehensive study, some 480 pages, is based around contemporary reports and documentation, as well as extensive personal research by the author and others. It describes the evasions of the more than three hundred Allied servicemen helped by the Burgundy line, together with details and the eventual fates of many hundreds of their helpers. They came from Burgundywill appeal to those interested in history, specifically Second World War escape and evasion.
