What is The Great Escape about?

Based on a true story, a group of allied escape artist-type prisoners-of-war (POWs) are all put in an 'escape proof' camp. Their leader decides to try to take out several hundred all at once. The first half of the film is played for comedy as the prisoners mostly outwit their jailers to dig the escape tunnel. The second half is high adventure as they use boats and trains and planes to get out of occupied Europe.

Streaming on Netflix

Netflix is one of the true originals when it comes to online streaming. They have a huge catalogue of TV Shows, Movies, Kids TV and Documentaries that include both classic and original content.

Got a question about Netflix?

Netflix doesn’t reveal the size of its ever-changing library, but it’s estimated to have around 6,000 titles available to stream. It’s one of the most popular streaming providers in the UK thanks to series such as Sex Education, The Crown and Bridgerton.
If you’re a Sky, BT or Virgin customer, you can easily add Netflix to your existing monthly bill. Like standard Netflix customers, you’re free to cancel the service whenever you want.
It could be argued that Netflix has a little more for the whole family. Kids TV and movie selections, in particular, are very strong compared to Amazon. However, Netflix does not have live sports like its American counterpart.
