Overview

The popular London Weekend Television drama series Wish Me Luck originally aired in Britain from January 1988 through February 1990; set in World War II-era, Nazi-occupied France, it begins with Colonel James "Cad" Cadogan (Julian Glover), a military man willing to do literally anything necessary to obtain the information he needs - even if it means putting the lives or safety of others at risk by sending them undercover behind enemy lines. Episodes follow two women enduring this plight - a wife and mother named Liz Grainger (Kate Buffery) and a half-Jewish factory worker called Matty Firman (Suzanna Hamilton) - as they slip through day to day situations and attempt to evade detection. This set presents the first eight episodes of the program (all of Series One) as they originally aired.

This series left me wanting more. It is full of historical information , but much more. The acting is stellar and the plot line is ingrossing.I'm a radical anglofile and this was right up my alley. More please...
