Colditz (1972): S01E05 – Maximum Security


Introduction

Colditz is a British television drama series co-produced by the BBC and Universal Studios and screened between 1972 and 1974.

Outline

The new Security Officer, Hauptmann Ulmann, arrives to replace the drafted Oberleutnant Lehr. The prisoners are wary of their new opponent, who seems much more skilled than his predecessor. Ulmann is aghast at the drunkenness of the second-in-command, the Kommandant’s friend Willi, and this is a source of tension between him and the Kommandant. Suddenly, the SS arrive for a conference, much to the Kommandant’s consternation, and the Standartenführer makes a bid to take over the camp.
