Synopsis

Evergreen World War Two escape drama set in a German prisoner-of-war camp, featuring a large cast of famous actors playing Allied troops. Each of them is desperate to get out - but will their relentless tunnelling help them get back to Britain? A curious mixture of bleak historical fact, optimism and good humour, all complete with perhaps the catchiest theme tune ever written!

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
