A six-part documentary series which provides television's first comprehensive look at
America's Central Intelligence Agency, one of the most powerful and mysterious organisations in the world. The shadowy world of spying is revealed as officials and agents tell the real stories from the CIA's 45-year history. Series producer Peter Molloy says: "We have been given unprecedented access to past and present members of both the CIA and their intelligence opponents to portray the secret world of American foreign policy." Using dramatic reconstructions from around the world, the programme reveals hitherto undisclosed stories of assassination plots, espionage, kidnapping, double cross and the Cold War, with access to the Russian KGB and other agencies involved in the intelligence war. It also has unique footage of the covert world of CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.
Berlin Cowboys. The series begins at the end of the Second World War and the start of the battle to win the Cold War, with Berlin becoming the spy capital of the world. The programme follows the agency's role in Germany between 1947 and the mid 1960s - a time of assassination plots, kidnapping, secret tunnels and double cross. As one CIA agent admits: "It was the only place where you were up against the Russians belly to belly." Written by John Ranelagh
