The true story of Wing Commander Forest Frederick Edward “Tommy” Yeo-Thomas (Kenneth More) and his personal WWII story.
“Tommy” – codenamed ‘The White Rabbit’ – is an Anglo-Welshman who volunteers for two dangerous undercover missions in Nazi-occupied Paris to liaise with the French Resistance.
On a third journey, he is betrayed and handed over to the Gestapo for interrogation. The story then relates the long and hideous suffering he endures at Buchenwald Concentration Camp.
Alan MacNaughtan played his Gestapo interrogator and – in flashbacks – Denise Buckley played his girlfriend, Barbara, and Annette Crosbie his resistance contact in Paris, José Dupuis.
