EPISODE 10: The Bombing of the Rainbow Warrior
It's just before midnight on 10 July 1985. The Port of Auckland, New Zealand.
The Rainbow Warrior, a Greenpeace anti-nuclear protest ship, is sitting at its dock when two massive explosions tear through its hull.
A man is killed onboard.
What follows is one of the most bizarre and sinister of diplomatic incidents.
The hunt for his killers uncovers an international network of spies, and exposes a highly-coordinated attack planned from the highest echelons of world power.
