Private Schultz (1981): S01E05


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.


It is now late 1944 and war is going poorly for Germany. The forging operation is moved by Neuheim to the labour camp Schulz is in. He manoeuvres to once again be posted to act as Neuheim’s clerk. As a last ditch effort Neuheim puts Schulz in charge of taking the forged money and equipment to the Alps for safety. With the help of the other forgers, Schulz dumps the equipment and money in a lake, but is then caught by an American patrol. Now penniless in late 1945, he is found by Neuheim and forced to retrieve the money from the lake. The plan quickly falls apart.
