The Great Escapers archiveSeventy-five years ago, seventy-six men escaped from a P.O.W. camp - their heroic exploits immortalised in a bestseller, and the always-on-telly-on-a-bank-holiday, notoriously free-with-the-facts film classic, 'The Great Escape.' In this badly behaved comedy, three twentysomething no-hopers are inspired by the wartime story to carry out a daring heist on the local Tesco Express ATM. The plan? One part mad gangster fantasy to three parts tunnelling tips half-inched from the heroic exploits of Bronson, Attenborough and Co... Will they finally break free from the prison-camp of their Tooting estate? Or all just end-up in the cooler like Steve McQueen? Though whatever you do, never forget 'Great Escaper Rule No 4': 'Don't mention Steve McQueen!!!'
