Another famous name to have been at Camp X was Ian Fleming. The remains of the camp still stand at Whitby Ontario, a town about 30 miles east of Toronto. There is one (unproven) theory that Fleming devised the name JAMES BOND from the ST JAMES UNITED CHURCH on Bond Street in Toronto.. The whole story is well documented with many photographs in INSIDE CAMP X by Canadian author Lynn Philip Hodgson. See more »
Hold your breath tension filled moments in this behind enemy lines drama. Watch CBC.ca to watch episodes if you have missed any. Well written scripts and acting is superb. Jack Lanksky's character is especially intriguing. The toggling between "Camp X" and the Resistance fighters in France keep the show moving along nicely. The storyline of the plight of the Jewish people is introduced early in the series and is given the air of how the outside world can barely comprehend the atrocities that the Germans were inflicting on them. The show incorporates the use of the German language with subtitles give a more realistice sense to the autheticity of the show. The portrayal of the French police part in the rounding up of the Jewish people lends a truth to the historical facts of WWII.
