I note that comedian Al Murray is analysing 'A Bridge Too Far', 'Escape to Victory' and 'Zulu' with Dan Snow amongst others on BBC4 TV at 2000 hrs Monday 25 August.

Thanks for that Martin but I wondered what on earth possessed them to include "Escape to Victory"? A right stinker.

Agreed Peter. It comes up as just 'Victory' in IMDb.

I don't think we need to have worried. 'Escape to Victory' was only included to be ridiculed.

The programme did cover a fair range of films and the comments, were on the whole, reasonably put.

It is gratifying that Zulu is always up there with the best. Now, back to the ramparts with yer mates.
