This compelling hit British drama series, produced by London
Weekend Television, details the overwhelming pain and frustration experienced by
the Channel Islands inhabitants during the German occupation of World War II.
The uneasy relationship maintained by the islanders and the Nazi's is
continually threatened as constrictive regulations dampen morale, accusations of
rape add fear and suspicion, while murders, spying, and a plot to assassinate
Hitler, entangle high ranking officials from both sides. This masterfully acted
series stars Alfred Burke (The House on Garibaldi Street, Longitude) as the
German Military Commandant charged with maintaining order and Bernard Hosfall
(Braveheart, Gandhi) as the chosen representative for the islanders, both of
whom will make choices that could cause a turn in the direction of the war.
Featuring extraordinary writing, period style cinematography and archival
footage, Enemy At The Door remains one of the finest World War II dramas ever
