Grey Clancy uncovers the little known story of Annette Wagner in Hitler’s Lost Spy. Swiss-born and a world traveller, she was a fashion and beauty expert, a media identity on the ABC and commercial radio in Australia during 1938-39 and – a Nazi spy.

Her access to public radio broadcasts to nationwide audiences have her a secure channel to transmit coded messages. Annette’s two years in Australia were spent immersed in intrigue and shielded by a skilfully managed façade of deception. Tracked by Military Intelligence, her outstanding credentials in espionage ensure that exposing her ultimate role would never be easy.

Join Greg to hear this amazing story of Nazi espionage in Australia, that remained lost in the National Archives for nearly 70 years, but can now be told.
