Spy Web: International Espionage

Spy Web: International Espionage uncovers some of the most fascinating spying and espionage stories which helped win victory in the most harrowing of circumstances. Throughout history, espionage and covert operations have been powerful but shadowy forces. Hidden deep within the daily workings of governments is a secret world of mystery, danger, and intrigue. A world where deception is a form of art. Where people are never who they say they are. Where the tiniest observation has the power to save a nation or spark a global war. The world of the spy is what most of us associate with popular fiction and film but the true story can be more fascinating, surprising, and important. From World War I onward, these revelations alter the way in which history is viewed-and the bravery of the intelligence services-especially those working behind enemy lines. This is the story of spies, intelligence operations and deceptions that changed the course of history.


The Man Who Never Was

The Man Who Never Was is a 1966 ABC-TV television series starring Robert Lansing and Dana Wynter. It was produced by 20th Century Fox Television, was filmed in Europe. Lansing plays the role of Peter Murphy, an American spy. One evening, as the spy is being chased through the streets, he sees Wainwright (an influential playboy millionaire who is his exact double) drunkenly stumbling out of a bar. Stunned at the physical resemblance, Murphy unwittingly allows enemy agents to kill Wainwright, after which he assumes his identity. Although Wainwright's wife, Eva, realises that Murphy is not her husband, she allows him to continue the impersonation, because it is financially convenient, and because she is moved by his treatment of her. Murphy and Eva eventually fall in love. Two movies were made by editing episodes together, "The Spy with the Perfect Cover" and "Danger Has Two Faces".
