Secret Army

Show Summary

Welcome to the Secret Army guide at TV.com. This is an old British show made by the BBC in the late 1970s. It is about the adventures of a second world war Belgian resistance organization called Lifeline, with its centre of operations at a Brussels bar called the Cafe Candide, owned by Albert Foiret. Albert is helped in his resistance work by his gorgeous waitress Natalie Chantrens and by his girlfriend Monique Duchamps. The leader of Lifeline is Lisa Colbert, and their arch-enemy is Sturmbannführer Ludwig Kessler of the SS, whose superiors in Berlin have given him the job of breaking the organization Secret Army first ran in the UK from 1977 to 1979, with a six-part sequel in 1981 called Kessler. Secret Army is still sometimes repeated around the world, though mainly in Europe, and all series are now available on DVD.

  • Amazing!!! The most intense show ever!!!

    9.5
    The suspense! This show is just intense! No musical score, yet it has its own atmosphere. Action packed and believable characters! BBC: do a remake of this!!!

  • An extraordinarily well made drama series about some of the bravest people in history. Can you imagine risking the terrifying consequences of being caught by the Gestapo for helping allied airmen get back to England?moreless

    This series was without doubt one of the best dramas about resistance workers in German occupied Europe. It held me on the edge of my seat whenever I watched it. It dealt with a serious subject and captured many complex aspects and conflicting emotions. Lifeline was there for the airmen but they always had to protect themselves even to the extent of killing them if they presented any kind of threat to the line. The main character Albert Foiret (Bernard Hepton) was a deep and complex one. Other characters were very vivid and memorable, especially Clifford Rose as Kessler.

    I can't praise it highly enough.

    I was deeply dissapointed a few years later when the BBC sent it up with that childish idiotic comedy known as allo allo. What an insult!!moreless
