Secret Army is a television drama made by the BBC and the Belgian national broadcaster BRT (now VRT) created by Gerard Glaister.
The series tells the story of a fictional Belgian resistance movement in German-occupied Belgium during the Second World War dedicated to returning Allied airmen, usually having been shot down by the Luftwaffe, to Great Britain.
It was made in the UK and Belgium and three series were broadcast on BBC1 between 7 September 1977 and 15 December 1979.
In the aftermath of events in France, a German newspaper publishes British operational secrets. Curtis concludes that the traitor must be located, and goes to France to retrace Romsey’s travels. Meanwhile Albert remains distrustful of him. Monique tails him to France in order to ascertain whether Curtis is genuine. Curtis comes to believe Hugh Neville is responsible for Victor’s death and Romsey’s capture. Posing as a downed airman, he visits the Neville’s home and fatally stabs Hugh Neville.
