The Real Great Escape

Hay Festival 2013 , 

Squadron Leader Roger Bushell masterminded an attempt to smuggle hundreds of POWs down a tunnel built right under the noses of the guards of Stalag Luft III, a top-security prisoner-of-war camp for captured Allied airmen in Lower Silesia. Great movie. The truth is stranger and more wonderful. Chaired by Mark Skipworth.
