Secret Army (1979): S03E03 – Revenge


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.

Kessler is a sequel to the series, set in contemporary times.


Kessler suspects that Reinhardt is implicated in the plot to kill Hitler on July 20 because of his extensive contacts with those involved. He believes he can find evidence to prove this. Albert finds out that the Communists plan to kill him. Fearing assassination in the Candide, Albert is helped by an undercover policeman who is also associated with the Communists, if reluctantly, and arrests him after the Candide closes for the night.
