The Real Goldfinger - Revealed

Channel 5 Thursday 9th July 2009 8.00-9.00 pm




This looks like a fascinating documentary on the real life events of 1914 which may have been the inspiration for one of Ian Fleming�s most brilliant and outrageously unhinged villains Auric Goldfinger and the ingenious plot for his classic James Bond novel Goldfinger.



'New research indicates that the audacious plot to rob Fort Knox in the James Bond story Goldfinger may have been based on real-life events. In 1914, the fledgling British secret service worked to foil an attack on the Bank of England, masterminded by an influential German spymaster.'
