    Background: Script info for item "latest Anti terrorist Devices shot by Bob Turner on 9-12-75
    In London today new firm launched the latest anti terrorist and anti spy equipment.

    The firm Bonaventura International Security Ltd is UK based but aims at a world wide market.

    Many of the devices show will look familiar to James Bond fans, but as the new firms chief executive, Mr. John Van Herbert explains, the films are usually much advanced compared with the real life manufacturing of the devices-it takes years of research before a product can be mass produced.

    He states that the equipment shown is the latest and best developed to be found in "eastern Europe or America
    Some of the devices introduced today have already been offered to Scotland Yard to help the London police in the current Siege in Dorege in Dorset Square. The firm aims at individual clients as wellans big companies and governments.

    The"Postgard" for example, an ultra sensitive letter bomb detector, which gives an (roll-6-8) alarm sound the moment a letter containing metal is passed over it, can be bought for less than 200, which means that individuals that they are being threatened can afford to have one in the house.

    The miniature television camera has only 3/4 inch in diameter, but the lenses of the camera has a diameter of only 1/8 inch, which means that any object can be observed through a minimum hole of inch 1/4 (roll 1 short-4)
    The minimicrophone is so small (less than 1/4 inch) that it can be hidden anywhere, the space between a door and the doorpost is usually enough) (roll 1-shots465) Another listening device is the microphone that can be adjusted to any wall, and can pick up sounds of a normal conversation on the other side of the wall up to a distance of ten feet.(roll 2 shots 1-2) sound with conversation from other room. The Latest invention is what experts call the "Passive long rance night observance device". This camera can pick up pictures at a distance 1-5 miles by moonlight, without being detected by other party.
