Shot Down: Escaping Nazi Europe 1 x 60'
During WWII, the RAF airmen who flew missions over occupied Europe knew that their chances of coming home alive were slim. But as well as the terrible losses, 500,000 British and Allied airmen found themselves stranded behind enemy lines after parachuting from their stricken aircraft. Most were later captured and forced to spend the remainder of the war in a German prison camp.

But a few went on the run – their goal, to make it back to England to re-join the fight. Many of these men would never have got away without the help of local people. Some were members of secret escape lines, like the Comete Line, set up by those who wanted to do their bit in the fight against the enemy.

Those who were lost behind enemy lines have never forgotten the sacrifices made by people who helped them. Using the memories of the last survivors, this is the untold story of the airmen who were shot down over Nazi Europe.
