Could YOU do it? Think about it: nearly one million people pass through Grand Central Terminal each day; 14,000 vessels navigate the Panama Canal every year; and 145 behind-the-scenes technicians keep audiences dazzled and performers alive during Cirque du Soleil's "O" on the Las Vegas strip. But who shoulders these pulse-pounding responsibilities? And, just how do they make their deadlines?
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.
