Wartime drama series Manhunt Vincent (Peter Barkworth) a British Agent working for the SOE (British Intelligence) is undercover as an operative in France during World War II. He is ordered by London to try and get two people Nina (Cyd Hayman) and Jimmy (Alfred Lynch) back to England.

Nina is badly wanted by the Germans, she carries a huge amount of top secret information in her head thanks to her role as secretary to a British Intelligence Officer. She is also a Jew. Jimmy is British flyer who has crash landed in Bracieux. Initially Vincent is never quite sure what Nina’s motives are and where her true loyalties lay. The trio were basically constantly on the move, trying to stay one step ahead off the Gestapo. Robert Hardy made a very strong impression as Abwehr Sgt Gratz, the German out to capture them. Lutzig (Philip Madoc) was the SS man in the area.
