The Zoo Gang

The Zoo Gang boasted a high calibre leading cast: John Mills, Lilli Palmer, Barry Morse and Brian Keith, plus quality guests and a Paul McCartney theme. However, the complexities of bringing together so many big, busy stars for location filming in France and then interiors at Pinewood meant that only six episodes were made, not enough for international syndication, which meant that the show never took off. This episode, The Counterfeit Trap, dates from 03/05/1974. The gang consisted of four World War II resistance fighters, once known by animal codenames, who reunite in France in the 1970s to avenge themselves on the man who betrayed them to the Nazis.
