Manhunt (1970)

Show Summary

Manhunt (1970) was a World War II drama series that starred Alfred Lynch, Peter Barkworth, Cyd Hayman, Robert Hardy and Philip Madoc. Produced by London Weekend Television, the show ran for 26 weekly episodes between January 2, 1970, and June 26, 1970. The series tells the story of British fighter pilot Jimmy Porter (Alfred Lynch), who crashes his plane in Nazi occupied France during the height of the Second World War. While on the run from Nazis, Jimmy meets a beautiful young woman named Nina (Cyd Hayman). Nina was the record-keeper for the main Resistance cell in Paris and possesses critical intelligence information that would be useful to both the Allies and the Nazis. Jimmy, with help from a Resistance leader code-named Vincent (Peter Barkworth), makes it his mission, at all costs, to bring Nina safely back to British soil. As Jimmy, Nina and Vincent attempt to flee France, they are relentlessly pursued by Abwehr Sgt. Gratz (Robert Hardy) and S.S. Officer Lutzig (Philip Madoc).
