The Heat of the Day
In this WW II espionage drama, a British officer stands wrongfully accused of treason and must find those who framed him. Much to his surprise, a beautiful young woman suddenly appears and offers her assistance causing him to question her motives and alliances. The film was originally broadcast on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Housewife, 49
The wartime diaries of Nella Last provide the foundation for this story about a woman who struggled for personal liberation as the world waged a violent war for freedom. Written by a starring popular British comedienne Victoria Wood, this BAFTA-winning drama highlights how a widespread war reflected on the life of a solitary woman. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Island at War
Spanning over six and a half hours, this U.K. television movie chronicles the harrowing experiences of the citizens of the Channel Islands during World War II. Produced for Masterpiece Theatre, Island at War is a fictionalized account of the five years spent under Nazi rule by the British inhabitants of St. Gregory island, a stand-in for the real islands that were subjected to the occupation.
