| A very important film
Unfortunately, there is no authorized version of this important docudrama available. The BBC has not seen fit to provide a high quality DVD to the general public.

I purchased both a DVD and a VHS version of the film from the Amazon sellers marketplace a few years ago. I realized later that they were both copied off the television (I assume). As of this writing (October 21, 2008), even these pirated versions seem to have disappeared.

I recommend that visitors contact the BBC and ask them to put this docudrama on DVD, if only for the 6-1/2 minute segment where Christabel meets an SS officer on a train. It is to my mind the most perfect marriage of cinematography, directing, script, and acting that has ever been produced. Andrew Wilde plays the SS officer, and he deserves an Oscar for his performance.
