Digging The Great Escape

In an audacious instance of derring-do, seventy six men escape from one of the most secure prison camps in Nazi Germany.

The allied prisoners dug a 100 metre tunnel under the noses of their German guards and succeeded in the largest mass break of the Second World War.

In this documentary a team of archaeologists and engineers gather at Stalag Luft III to uncover the tunnel which lay unexplored for 70 years, and discover the secrets of the Great Escape.
