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 manwilling 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.
At the height of World War II, France is occupied and all of England is in peril. Col. James "Cad" Cadogan (Julian Glover, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) will use any means necessary to get the intelligence he needs-even sending civilians to work undercover behind enemy lines. Based on the real-life stories of women recruited by Britain's Special Operations Executive, this suspenseful drama series follows wife and mother Liz Grainger (Kate Buffery, Trial & Retribution) and half-Jewish factory girl Matty Firman (Suzanna Hamilton, 1984) from training in England through the terror of their daily lives in Nazi-occupied France.
