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.
