This drama might have been made in 1981 but it certainly does not date. The story of British and Dutch women in a POW camp in Singapore is an idea not seen before and one that was done well. Stephanie Cole (Dr. Beatrice Mason) and Lousie Jameson (Blanche) are two fine actresses and this drama shows their acting talents superbly. Well done the BBC! I just hope that a repeat on BBC1 will come soon!
