[edit] Information

Hollywood makes spies look invincible, but the reality is more dangerous than any screenwriter can invent. Go deep undercover in a world where no one is who -or what - they seem and one mistake could affect thousands - even millions - of innocent people. With vicious double-crosses and nerve-wracking action that takes place mostly in the shadows, the life of a spy is no game - it's deadly serious! Narrated by Alan Bates, Spying Game reveals the history, technology and techniques of the world of espionage. From the message-carrying pigeons and early radio transmitters of the Second World War, through to the Cold War climate of bugged embassies, satellites and double agents, all the secrets of spying are uncovered. The glamour of James Bond's lifestyle may be missing, but the spirit of bravery and ingenuity is all there, as are the gadgets. With contributions from US, British, German and Russian agents, The Spying Game is a revealing glimpse into a mysterious and sometimes shocking world. Executive producer: Camilla Deakin ; Associate producer: Andy Robbins An Uden Associates Ltd Production for the Channel Four Television and TLC/Discovery Communications

[edit] To Catch a Spy

To most patrons of a certain Berlin cafe, the man with the magazine under his arm is just another customer. But to the three or four other spies watching him, he's one of them. Only problem - which side is he on - this week? In a world where loyalties change with the wind - or a better offer - counterespionage is a necessity. Enter this complex maze where friends suddenly become foes - and you may be the next target.
Since WWII, the US and Britain have developed more sophisticated satellite airplane tactics, in some cases making the secret agent obsolete. Explore the world of counterespionage.
