About the Author:
Andy Priestner has been a devotee of Secret Army since he first caught the 1981 repeat season at the tender age of nine. While freelancing for the DVD company DD Video in 2003 some 22 years later, the opportunity arose for him to produce special features to accompany their Secret Army boxsets and he leapt at the chance. While researching the booklets for the DVDs, Andy amassed more material than he could use, so the prospect of a full book on the series beckoned. The fact that, unlike sci-fi series, classic TV drama remains largely unexplored, has also encouraged him in this endeavour.
