Cold War intrigue, and the popularity of the James Bond movies, led to a proliferation of TV spies in the 1960s. Some were serious, like Britain's "Danger Man" ("Secret Agent" in the US), some were silly, like "Get Smart," and others were somewhere in between, like "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." And of course TV continues to offer secret agents, with "Alias," "Rubicon," and other shows.
David Garland has been keeping a secret dossier on the dramatic, playful, snazzy, jazzy soundtracks composed for TV spies, and now files his report by presenting music from the shows named above, as well as "The Avengers," "Mission: Impossible," "I Spy," "The Prisoner," and more.
