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.
Lifeline is under pressure. Jacques and Natalie have to evaluate South African airman Noel Uys, and conclude he must be killed after finding flaws in his story. Uys threatens Natalie with a shotgun and she becomes his prisoner in a windmill. Meanwhile another surviving member of his aircrew persuades Lifeline that Uys is genuine, but the new information may have come too late.
