94. THE SPY AND THE TRAITOR: THE GREATEST ESPIONAGE STORY OF THE COLD WAR

Generously sponsored by

One evening in July 1985, a man stood on the pavement of a busy avenue in Moscow, holding a carrier bag from Safeway, the British supermarket. An ordinary looking Soviet citizen, this man was in fact the greatest secret agent of the Cold War and his bag was a secret signal. Ben Macintyre will reveal an extraordinary tale of espionage, betrayal and raw courage that changed the course of the Cold War forever.
