Watched the Discovery serie "Secret Nazi Bases", the episode only about Maisy. Mr. Sterne told the same story as here and in his book. Found a map in a uniform, PdH a "fake" battery, etc.
Does a channel like Discovery don't do any research by itsef?
No, they don't. They reach out to whoever has a story that may seem to fit into their chosen narrative and run with it. If they did research which showed the Maisy battery was not in fact a "Secret Nazi Base" then they would not have a program for their "Secret Nazi Bases" series.

With the risk of steering this off-topic, it's apparently produced by 'Go Button Media' (Canadian company). They took the cheap approach of sending a film crew to take some shots, including reenactors running around, and interview GS. All their experts are just talking heads in a studio (mostly Canadian I think, which would be convenient and quite possible cheap as well).
These experts seem to be responding to stuff that's being thrown at them, without checking or questioning anything. But hey, the show is trying to create mystery and be entertaining…. Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. Either way, there is no critical analysis.
FWIW, these are their experts and how they are identified: 1) Rob Bell, engineer/adventurer 2) Brooke Guzar, structural engineer 3) Rejeanne Aimey, mechanical engineer 4) Patrick Nay, WWII expert 5) Robert Watson, historian/author. I think this says a lot about the quality of the research...

Funny to see how "nazi" word attracts to sell more. To me this is just a strongpoint of the german army, this has nothing to deal with Hitlers paranoid and crazy ideas.

Of course yes the aim of the war comes from Hitler, but here the strongpoint is a mean of defense of
an army at war to prevent an assault. The link with the nasty ideas and concentration camps exists but
is quite far away.

I think this could be the layout of the bunkers in HKB "Brasilia"... I'm not shure for the type 668.

Gary, it's in youre backyard, take a shovel (or bulldozer) and start digging dude 8-) I think "Brasilia" could be a nice addon for the Maisy-battery.

1A4 GE 01 -- BFA.jpg
See (starts at ca. 23min.): https://youtu.be/uVE_EpHxiyM
In the serie Expedition Unknown they have dug up 2 bunkers at Brasilia.
Found a 105mm czech cannon and some small stuff.

Nothing says "archaeological rigor" like using a backhoe to clear a site.

ten years ago during the winter when it was a lot of snow I went to brasilia,one of the two accesses was open for erosion of time.

a few weeks after the cultivator closed with soil and rubble.
