Jaelynne Wallace Ruane,
Fourteen modern day recruits see if they could have become unofficial spies and secret agents in occupied 1940s Europe. Following real training exercises from the British Archives, these men and women learn combat, surveillance and survival skills and test their abilities in training scenarios. Only the best will make it to the final episode. Real missions and personalities from wartime are also featured, connecting the training to actual objectives and operatives.
The filming took place at the Alvie and Dalraddy Estates (4 miles from Aviemore) in the Cairngorms and Forglen Estate, near Turriff in Aberdeenshire. See more »
Real history by real people
I found the show by accident skipping through the channels glad I did
a fascinating series giving a glimpse of the training process for former SOE recruits , the training apparently is taken from declassified manuals its authentic as it can be , to the point you can no longer beat the recrutes or non are allowed to get killed during the training ,
There are a few stand out recruits. Lizzie Jeffreys. she looks the part , reminds me of. Honeysuckle Weeks. in Foyles War. , she has the same clipped posh voice
small in stature ,but she is clearly a tough cookie
and Dan apparently a property developer , other reports say he's a model and an actor , well he had come dressed for the part , he looked like an extra from salad days , as fake as they come , most had worked him out day one
You see TV you can make reality shows if you try that make people think , lets see more of this
