Secret Army Complete Series One 4 DVD Box Set - BRAND NEW & SEALED
4 DVD, PAL, Region 2, Run Time: 14 Hours 40 Mins
Devised and produced by Gerard Glaister (Colditz, The Expert, The Brothers), the award-winning BBC series SECRET ARMY is a gripping and authentic portrayal of the lives of a group of Belgian resistance members and their German oppressors during the Second World War. Often remembered merely as the inspiration for the comedy series 'Allo 'Allo!, it is high time that this excellent drama series was re-appraised on its own undoubted merits.
The first series of sixteen episodes follow the struggles of the Brussels-based courageous women and men who make up the Lifeline Resistance network. Lisa Colbert - code name Yvette, runs the line (Jan Francis - Just Good Friends, Stay Lucky), while Albert Foiret, owner of the Cafe Candide is her second (Bernard Hepton - The Six Wives of Henry VIII, Colditz, I Claudius). They are joined in their endeavours by Flt. Lt. John Curtis (Christopher Neame - Colditx, Dallas), Albert's mistress - Monique Duchamps (Angela Richards - star of a number of West End musicals), and 19 year old Natalie Chantrens (Juliet Hammond-Hill - Blood Money, Blake's 7). Lifeline are opposed by the forces of the Third Reich, including the head of the Belgian Luftwaffe Polizei - Major Brandt (Michael Culver - The Colour of Justice, The House of Elliot, Cadfael) and the infamous Sturmbannfuhrer Kessler (Clifford Rose - Kessler, Callan, Inspector Morse).
