Just watched it on Channel 4 and loved it, very good cast and overall very enjoyable.
Full of great actors including Richard Attenborough and Tony Todd A bit different from the usual escape movies, in that there's some intrigue and tension caused by a informer within the British ranks this results in the deaths of 4 British prisoners before they finally work out who it is.
I do like the 50/60 British films and this is another that i will definitely watch again.
