Series 4, Episode 1 - Prisoners Of War
It is 1941 and René, Edith, the Colonel, the Captain, Maria and Yvette are still stuck inside Normandy's Stalag Luft IV. Eventually Hans is flung over the fence, but escape methods must be found for the others - not to mention the genuine POWs, if possible!
Hans is successful in vaulting over the perimeter fence at the POW camp, so one escape is complete. Gruber and Helga decide they will rescue the rest. Gruber picks them up in a garbage collection truck and drives away.
This episode is also known as Hans Goes Over The Top.
