Karl Koecher: Stranger In A Strange Land
46 min
He was a linguist, a brilliant academic, and a master spy. She was a seductive blonde beauty, dressed in minks and diamonds. Karl Koecher is the only intelligence agent from the Soviet Bloc who succeeded in penetrating the CIA. He and his wife Hana spent twenty years leading a double life as sleepers, Soviet moles building up a carefully designed identity. They led another secret life, it seems, as swingers, trading partners and attending orgies in the swing clubs of Washington D.C and New York City. They may well have collected deeper secrets still from members of the American military who shared their beds. Koecher was suspected by both sides, betrayed and placed in mortal danger. We have exclusive interviews with Karl and Hana Koecher, Vladimir Kryuchkov, the former head of the KGB and Alexander Sokolov, the former head of Soviet Counterintelligence. They tell a story of cross and double-cross, secrets revealed, and of a terrifying brush with a full-scale nuclear war.
