The prisoners in Colditz Castle make many attempts to escape captivity from the arrival of the first British prisoners after Dunkirk in 1940 until the liberation of the castle by the Americans in 1945. Colditz was a "special" camp, designed by the Nazis to hold high-risk and politically important prisoners.Written by

Due to the high production costs of the series, the BBC pre-sold the series to "Universal TV" in the US, making it one of the BBC's first co-productions with another broadcaster. See more »
All of the prisoners are seen dressed in impeccable uniforms, from uniform caps with insignia down to highly polished boots. The shirts and pants are clean and pressed, and the senior officers even have ties. None of these would have been carried into battle, and even if they had been, would surely have shown signs of wear after years in prison camps. In reality the prisoners had to make due with whatever they could gather together, certainly not the high quality uniforms featured in the series. See more »
I watched this on T.V. as a Kid, IN PARTICULAR i liked the character played by Bernard Hepton as the commandant and can remember as if it was yesterday this unique part, right down to the frequent clearing of the throat and his general manner, i can never recall missing an episode and used to look forward to it being screened every week, needless to say i was very disappointed when the Series came to an end and would love to own the whole series, Anyone out there know if this was ever released on Video or D.V.D. and if so where it can be obtained OR WHEN IT MAY BE RE-SCREENED IN THE FUTURE ?
Please let me know if any one notices it popping up on the History Channel again in the future, Gary@ichthus88.force9.co.uk, Thanks in advance Cheers - Gary
