James Bond: Agent of SPECTRE is scheduled for March 2021.




'Ginger-lith' mystery

San Francisco awoke to a frosted gingerbread monolith perched above the city on Christmas Day, but within 24 hours only a candle and a framed ‘ginger-lith’ portrait remained. This was the world’s 135th monolith sighting in 2020 according to the monolith spotters (yes, they really do exist).

The death of a traitor

British double agent George Blake betrayed hundreds of western spies to the Soviet Union, where he lived after escaping from a London prison. Trained by MI6 then recruited by the KGB at the height of the Cold War, Blake was convicted of spying after a trial conducted mainly behind closed doors. Hubert Lister Parker, former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, gave Blake the maximum sentence he could, 42 years. To the Russians, Blake was a legend. To the Brits, he was just another traitor.
