Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
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 Through archival footage, interviews with key players, and excerpts from unpublished memoirs and recently declassified sources, this series attempts to put a human face on the missions of men and women who until now have lurked in the shadows.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. "Rudolf Abel: The Master Spy" reviews the life of Rudolf Abel, perhaps the Soviet Union's most effective spy who controlled the Rosenbergs and was later "traded" for downed U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers. "House of Spies" continues the saga of the all-powerful KGB.
