Description

Triple bill of WWII movies. In 'Against the Wind' (1947), at the height of the war, a group of men and women are gathered together in London to be trained as spies.

However, there is a traitor in their midst. 'The Dam Busters' (1954), adapted from the book by Paul Brickhill, is based on the true story of Dr Barnes Wallis (Michael Redgrave), whose invention of the 'Bouncing Bomb' is greeted with much scepticism.

However, RAF Wing Commander Guy Gibson proves the bomb's worth in a daring mission to destroy the German Ruhr Dams.

The film also stars Richard Todd and Ursula Jeans. Docu-drama 'The Colditz Story' (1954), adapted from the book by P.R.

Reid, stars John Mills, Eric Portman and Lionel Jeffries, and re-tells the experiences of Allied prisoners-of-war who were held in Colditz Castle.

These POWs were strictly monitored as they were a high risk category and had constantly tried to escape whichever prison they where previously placed in.

Despite being outnumbered by their guards, the prisoners of Colditz continued to achieve their goal - freedom.
