The Inversion of History

June 10, 2023


It is 18 years since the last Colditz drama on British television, which apparently means we need a new one. And the times being what they are, it appears that the drama will have to reflect the values of our little cultural-revolutionary period.

Like most adaptations of already well-known stories, this one will be based on a book by Ben Macintyre.

Douglas Murray is associate editor of The Spectator and author of The War on the West: How to Prevail in the Age of Unreason, among other books.

Originally published in The Spectator.
