Wicked Inventions

Like it or not, warfare, conflict and the need to explore the unknown is the catalyst for human progress in technology. The fact is that mankind is at it's most inventive when it's being destructive.

It’s the same with the field of space exploration. The desire of the superpowers to dominate each other lead them to look to space to gain the upper hand. From that enormous effort and expenditure – all with military and political gain as its primary purpose – came a gamut of inventions we now use in our everday lives. This series of 30 half hour shows explores, explains and whole range of surprising gadgets, toys and implements that were originally made for a very different purpose.

Long before any forms of mass communication, history’s SPYMASTERS invented and established any number of sophisticated spy networks, many of which formed the basis for the rules of modern day espionage. It was these men and women who pulled the invisible strings, chose the operatives and established the methods used by the first secret services of the world. They were the cold eyed, ruthless servants prepared to do anything to serve their political or royal masters.

From Tudor times to the early 20th Century, It is the stories of these SPYMASTERS and their methods that feature in this brand new six part series.
