Back in London for the next Scientology summit, featuring Russell Miller!

Russel_Miller2We’re on the move again, and this time it’s a return to London. It was just two months ago that we were here for a talk at Conway Hall with BBC reporter John Sweeney and our publisher, Humfrey Hunter.

Tomorrow, we will be on hand as the BBC-backed “My Scientology Film” with Louis Theroux debuts at the London Film Festival. But today, well, we’re in for a treat. Thanks to the hard work of the Bunker’s own i-Betty, we’ll finally get to meet one of our journalistic idols, Bare-Faced Messiah author Russell Miller. We hear he’ll be holding court along with the Underground Bunker’s great friend, historian Jon Atack. Even better, Karen de la Carriere will be joining us after flying over from Los Angeles.

We hope that wherever we end up, we’ll have a connection and can post a photo or two. Theroux’s film gets its premiere on Wednesday evening, and we’ll bring you some reporting from the scene.
