Based on The Great Escape and using the theme tune from the movie, this commercial for Umbro featured the England team holed up in a 'POW camp'.

We built the set near Pirbright army base, employed a squad of soldiers as background artists and shot for 3 days on location plus 1 day in studio.

The resulting commercial made the front page of the Sunday newspapers and was even discussed on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Great fun!
