The untold story of the greatest of all female spies, a woman who galvanized the French resistance into a ferocious fighting force, took extraordinary risks, reckless gambles and almost made it out ...
This series contains inherently interesting material about the Special Operations Executive which operated in occupied territory during the second world war. To the credit of the producers, there is a minimum of the "talking head" shots so often seen in programs of this type. The problem is that there are not, of course, a lot of archival footage of spies at work. Much of the film is taken from "Now It Can Be Told" and "School for Danger." (I've seen the former and recommend it.) But you will see the same shots repeatedly in various episodes. I noticed Jacqueline Nearne jump out of the same plane three times in one episode. Also, some episodes are repetitive which I imagine was necessary to fill the hour. All in all, it would have been better as 40 minute radio programs.
