An excellent British thriller
`The Long Way Home'? concerned a group of escapees from a German POW camp who tried to get back to England. The story was gripping because one of the escapees was a German spy. It had particularly compelling music (title and incidental), which I would love to hear again. This was an early childhood memory for me (back in 1960) and was a series full of suspense and action. Terrific!
