New ABC/Net ix drama Pine Gap lifts the lid on hi-tech spies
Intelligence and military support from three massive satellite surveillance bases forms the backbone of America’s global in uence. These entities are located at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado, US, and Harrogate in England, but the most important one of them all is to be found right in the middle of the Australian outback!
There, a team of US and Australian intelligence analysts work “together” to ensure global stability – but beneath it all lies a clash of personalities, cultures and politics between the nations which could soon have grave global consequences, with Australia acting as “piggy in the middle” of America and China’s grapple for supreme power.
