Sky HISTORY is giving away a pair of tickets to premiere of The Great Escaper film, taking place on 20th September 2023 in a central London location. The film, starring Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson in her final role, is inspired by the true story of WW2 veteran Bernard Jordan whose 'great escape' from his care home in 2014 made global headlines.

The Great Escaper

In the summer of 2014, Bernard Jordan (Michael Caine) staged a 'great escape' from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades at the D-Day Landings 70th anniversary. It was a story that captured the imagination of the world as Bernie embodied the defiant, 'can-do' spirit of a generation that was fast disappearing. But of course, it wasn’t the whole story. It was an inspirational but sanitised retelling of one man’s need to come to terms with the lasting trauma of war. Bernie’s adventure, spanning a mere 48 hours, also marked the culmination of his 60-year marriage to Rene (Glenda Jackson) – The Great Escaper celebrates their enduring love but always with an eye to the lessons we might learn from the Greatest Generation.
