I don't really remember this - but loved Secret Army
Being a great fan of Secret Army, I am one of the many people who have bought up the recent DVD release ... and from what I understand ... the producers did Colditz before SA ... it won British Academy Awards and was extremely popular.
After the great success of the Secret Army DVD releases, isn't it time Colditz was released on DVD too? I would definitely buy it. What do you think guys?
There is just so much good stuff from the 1970's and 60's .... it was a classic period
The more people asking for some of it on DVD, the more likely we are to actually have it released.
