Gladio
Last of the documentaries exposing the influence of the Gladio, a terrorist network operating throughout Europe. The Foot Soldiers. In 1978 in Rome the Italian prime minister Aldo Moro was kidnapped and his bodyguard was killed. The bullets found at the scene were of a type issued only to Italian Special Forces and, according to one secret agent's confession, the secret services had been warned in advance of the kidnapping.
Timewatch examines the truth behind this and the subsequent assassination of Moro - who was in favour of including the Italian Communist party in a national government. The programme also reconstructs a series of unexplained and bloody killings a few years earlier in Belgium, when masked gunmen murdered people shopping in supermarkets. Some of the Gladio members responsible now talk about these seemingly pointless murders. Director Allan Francovich
