Spy Web: International Espionage (1999): S02E11 – US Naval Intelligence


A 1999 history documentary series about spying and intelligence-gathering hosted by Stan Watt.


The US’s longest surviving intelligence service was created in 1882. One of its most prominent divisions was the American Photographic Interpretation Centre created in 1941 to train and support fleet photographers. It played an active role in the Cold War era particularly in electronic monitoring. By 1970 a vast expansion in Russian Naval operations on a worldwide scale created the necessity to keep track of all Soviet naval-related activities.
