This mini-series tells for the first time the full story of British Security Coordination, the international allied intelligence agency of World War II, whose work has been a closely guarded secret for the past sixty years. Accounts include top level wartime undercover operations, including the breaking of the German Enigma code, and the race for the atomic bomb. It is a gripping true story of extraordinary personal heroism and sacrifice in the face of war.Written by
Noël Coward, a World War II wartime secret agent for the "Intrepid" spy-ring organization, once told Sir William Stephenson: "One of these days they're going to do a movie about this, and if they ever do, you insist that it be done by my old friend David Niven." Apparently, shortly before Coward's death, he told the producers of this mini-series, "Make sure Niven does it." See more »

How To Acquire
I've seen this movie on TV a number of years ago & have been trying (unsuccessfully) to obtain a copy on VHS/DVD for repeat personal viewing.
Of course, the key point of interest is Camp X, situated outside of Toronto - a base for training.
The book on this story is the ONLY book I've ever read cover to cover (without being 'forced' to read).
It is a favorite of mine & would like to have a copy of the film on DVD or VHS.
Can anyone advise where I may get a copy (for purchase, of course).
Many thanks/ Skipper
