Smuggling cameras in sausages

This is sort of old news, I know...

But this story about how French POWs got an 8mm camera smuggled in piece by piece and then documented life in a WWII prison camp is quite remarkable.

BBC News - How French secretly filmed prison camp life in WWII

From the article:
"The prisoners had discovered that German soldiers would only check food sent in by cutting it down the middle. The parts were hidden in the ends."
