Episode 21: Christine Granville - Churchill's Favourite Spy
Said to be Winston Churchill's favourite spy, Christine was an adrenaline junkie and a countess by birth whose jaw dropping bravery during the Second World War saved many many lives. Over the course of her wartime career, a knack for repeatedly escaping the deadliest of situations had given her almost mythical status. Christine died early at the age of 44, but those years were stuffed to bursting with adventure, the likes of which would be hard to swallow if you were watching a fictitious film with a plot borrowed from Christine's life.
