BRAVE DOUBLE AGENT ‘SYLVIA’ THREATENS A KBG NUCLEAR SPY RING WITH EXPOSURE
British-born Kay Marshall (code name ‘Sylvia’) had no ambition to become a spy, but in the early 1960s found herself centre stage of one of the most important and intriguing Australian espionage cases of the Cold War.
Australia’s spy agency, ASIO, filmed meetings between this brave double agent and a high-ranking KGB officer. The case held the promise of cracking a nuclear spy ring - but its inexplicable collapse haunted ASIO for decades. Reinvestigating the case, Final Rendezvous closely examines the surveillance film to reveal what went wrong.
Brimming with new insights, stunningly restored surveillance footage and Sylvia’s powerful testimony, this compelling documentary cracks open one of the great espionage mysteries of the Cold War, identifying the elusive KGB operative and uncovering a possible KGB murder on Australian soil – within days of Sylvia’s final rendezvous.
