For the first time in history we go inside the closely guarded National Reconnaissance Office, a secret intelligence agency, to meet the men and women behind America's spy satellite programme. ‘Spies in the Sky' explores this place that only a few people know exists. For over 50 years the NRO has been the United States' eyes and ears in space. The show takes you inside the National Reconnaissance office itself, speaking with the men and woman working there. Take a look inside this mysterious and previously unknown compound and the incredibly complex spy satellite systems, while exploring the development of high-tech surveillance through history.
During World War II, Hitler's scientists developed terrifying new weapons of mass destruction.

Here, they secretly pored over millions of air photos shot at great risk over German territory by specially converted, high-flying Spitfires.
NOVA reveals startling new evidence that Soviet spies penetrated America's deepest secrets, including the Manhattan Project, in the 1940's.

"Shape Your Shade" is a 4 track MCD produced as a promotional release for the forthcoming album "Suvmi". Spies under Von Magnet influence project was inspired by two Spies remixes for Von Magnet released in 2003 and 2004. From that moment the production of a complete album based of Von Magnets original songs taken from their whole discography was conceived. The chosen songs have been 'digested', re-visited, re-arranged, mixed and produced according to Spies musical-universe by Holeg. More than an album of remixes, Holeg created a complete album. The result of this album is a trip through a wide range of styles from electronica to rock toward world music, ambient and experimental within an overall cinematic mood.
