I was thinking the same myself when the chaps went into the studio booth. I still wonder how they would figure out sound volumes, and the aural nature of the certain types of explosions, the density of ordnance fire, and so on without doing a real-world simulation (in a non-lethal way of course)

Yes, but the point they wee trying to prove was whether the pipes were loud enough to galvanise troops along the long lines in the midst of an offensive and loud battle noises. To me, it's still inconclusive one way or another.

I think that I once saw an interview with Daniel Laidlaw's nephew and he was the last recorded piper to play into battle in WWII. It was whilst fighting the Japanese, I think that he said he play Pibroch of Donald Dhubh.

Thanks. I was expecting johnny cope as the reveille tune for the black watch but the first version I looked at in my BMW archive didn't seem to compare. An excellent TV prog anyway. It surely merited being shown UK wide at least.

There are different regimental variations of Johnny Cope. That was still recognizably the tune, though.

Not entirely sure the good people of Messines would be keen on having their town flattened again to satisfy curiosity...
