The Man Who Knew Too Much
Is Paddy Costello New Zealand’s own Kim Philby, the infamous British Intelligence agent who became a Russian spy? Costello’s life intersected in dramatic fashion with so many key points of history. He was involved in a Cold War scandal in which notorious Cold War spies Morris and Lona Cohen used New Zealand passports to enter the UK and spy on the British nuclear programme… but was Costello a spy and a traitor? This documentary explores the complex and compelling evidence for and against the claim that he was a Russian spy.
