I remember seeing a documentary some time back regarding a group in 
the UK who had succeeded in using Synthetic Aperture techniques to 
combine pictures from three telescopes. By doing so they created a 
'large' telescope rivaling, if not better than, the Hubble.

Can you provide a brief intro into how this technique works.

I would be extremely grateful if you could also provide some links to 
sites providing more details (books, Groups, Institutions etc.) as I 
cannot for the life of me find anything on the subject.

Thankyou in Anticipation.
