  1. Interesting listening to you guys on this film. I was lucky enough to visit Sagan, site of Stalags III and VIII. It was drama to fictionally execute 50 in a scene, but one interesting fact is that Roger Bushell and Bernard Scheidhauer are memorialized in a monument at the west end of Ramstein AFB runway on the roadside. There is a story about that in After the Battle mag Issue 170.

  2. I was despairing that you wouldn’t mention Chicken Run!! One of my fave Aardman movies, brilliant. I quote it so often. Do watch it again. Tho I do feel badly for eating chicken now and again.
