David Jason’s Greatest Escapes

First shown on ITV 1 on 28 August 2011, this was a unique one-off documentary in which Sir David Jason took a trip back in time to relive some of the amazing true stories that inspired the famous film The Great Escape and the TV series, Colditz.

David Jason's Greatest Escapes

Jason visited Poland, the site of Stalag Luft III, where The Great Escape took place. He met with 88-year-old Andy Wiseman and 97-year-old Alfie Fripp, who were both prisoners at Stalag Luft III which was built by the Germans to be escape-proof.

Due to be repeated over the Christmas period in 2011, this is a great introduction to the story of the camp and Alfie.
