Foxtel’s History Channel has picked up the series for Australia and New Zealand. In Belgium, it was picked up by RTBF, and ZDF Enterprises took the rights for German speaking territories. Lastly, TV5 picked up the Canadian rights.

Can’t Stop debuted The Hidden Side of World War II for buyers at MIPDOC last month. The 5 x 60-minute program revisits “grey areas” from different operations undertaken during World War II.

The series aired on primetime in France on the network D8, with each episode attracting an average of one million viewers, according to the producer.
