James Bond producer, Barbara Broccoli, has confirmed in the official No Time To Die podcast that this is “the fifth and final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing, so it's a culmination of everything this portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines.” So there we have it, but who’s next? The answer, if it’s even known, is still TOP SECRET.




The secrets of being an Astronaut

To be considered for NASA’s astronaut program, candidates must have U.S. citizenship, hold a master's degree in a STEM field, and have at least two years of related post-grad professional experience, or at least 1000 hours of pilot-in-command time on jet aircraft.

It could have been so different

TENET star John David Washington, son of multiple oscar-winning father Denzel, makes acting look easy. But did you know that acting wasn’t actually his original career choice? A talented football player, John David was in the St Louis Rams practice squad for years.




Spy, mother, freedom fighter and hero

Patricia Warner once worked undercover as a flamenco dancer. She was a spy for the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA, serving in Washington, London and Madrid during World War II, and was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 2020 for her brave OSS exploits. Patricia has passed away aged 99 but her amazing story will live on.




The FBI is making movies! 

The FBI has released a movie to raise awareness of how foreign intelligence entities use social media to target Americans. The film, called ‘The Nevernight Connection’ tells the fictional account of a former U.S. intelligence official who went to spy for the Chinese. It was inspired by the true story of former CIA officer Kevin Mallory, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for passing national defense information to the Chinese intelligence.





Spying as a work of art

Espionage is the subject of a new exhibition at the Shirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany, titled ‘We Never Sleep’ (after the famous slogan of the infamous Pinkerton agency). The show features works by 40 international artists - all bringing spying to life through art. Themes such as surveil­lance, conspiracy, cold-bloodedness and propa­ganda are explored across more than 70 paint­ings, photographs, videos, sculp­tures and instal­la­tions.
