127 - Escape From Colditz Castle

It was supposed to be a prison for the baddest of the bad, an inescapable complex for POWS that had escaped every other jail... But the inmates didn't get the memo. Dave reports on the many escape attempts from Colditz Castle, a formidabble Second World War POW camp in Germany. Tunnels, Gliders, Disguises, False Walls, Fake Keys and more... These are some of the most daring and intriciate escapes ever attempted.
