A series my mum and dad use to watch along with Secret Army which I never bothered with until repeated on UK Gold and really enjoyed. I believe all the events in the Colditz series were based on actual events.
I hope you get to see it it is a very good series and at times could be quite dark and you come away far from being happy. Two of the best roles were both Germans, Clifford Rose as Sturmbannführer Ludwig Kessler a totally hateful man and in the last series Terrance Hardiman as Major Reinhardt although trying to shut the life line down did follow a better code and often bumped heads with Kessler.
