Spies is a video series dedicated to the secret wars that have raged through the past decades. Through archival footage, interviews with key players, and excerpts from unpublished memoirs and recently declassified sources, this series attempts to put a human face on the missions of men and women, who, until now, have lurked in the shadows. Material from the archives of the CIA, FBI, KGB, and Mossad are used extensively. The segment "Master of Deception" profiles the disinformation campaign of Juan Pujol, the Spanish independent double agent alternately known as "Garbo" and "Arabelle," who deceived the Germans while working for British intelligence. "Women Underground" profiles British women who worked as spies in Nazi-held Europe.
