Private Schultz (1981): S01E03


Private Schulz is a 1981 BBC television comedy drama serial set mostly in Germany, during and immediately after World War II.

It stars Michael Elphick in the title role and Ian Richardson playing various parts.


After landing in Britain, Schulz buries most of the money, using a milestone as a landmark. While trying to blend in among the populace, his behaviour arouses suspicion amongst the villagers, and he escapes to make contact with the Nazi agent Melfort. He discovers Melfort is controlled by the British and runs to the coast, crossing the Channel to arrive at the Dunkirk evacuation. He eventually enters a deserted Chateau, where he is double-crossed by a countess, then captured by the German army.
